Please visit this page for a complete list of the ways that patients and researchers can contribute samples for Castleman disease research.
Currently, the CDCN is in the process of creating a biobank to store multiple types of tissue samples and make them available to researchers around the world. Patients will be able to contribute samples directly and physicians will be able to contribute samples as well. More information will be posted in November-December 2015.
Investigators at the University of Pennsylvania are also preparing to launch several important studies and will need patient blood samples. More information will be posted in November-December 2015.
