AIDS and Cancer Specimen Resource

A biorepository for HIV-infected human biospecimens from a wide spectrum of HIV-related or associated diseases, including cancer, and from appropriate HIV-negative controls. The ACSR has formalin-fixed paraffin embedded biospecimens, fresh frozen biospecimens, malignant cell suspensions, fine needle aspirates, and cell lines from patients with HIV-related malignancies. It also contains serum, plasma, urine, bone marrow, cervical and anal specimens, saliva, semen, and multi-site autopsy speicmens from patients with HIV-related malignancies including those who have participated in clinical trials. The ACSR has an associated databank that contains prognostic, staging, outcome and treatment data on patients from whom tissues were obtained. The ACSR database contains more than 300,000 individual biospecimens with associated clinical information. Biospecimens are entered into the ACSR database by processing type, disease category, and number of cases defined by disease category.
