In these instances, the investigators will ask the patients whether a small portion of their specimen/s could be collected and banked for future research purposes. DESIGN: Prospective blood/tissue collection. PROCEDURES: A small portion of the patient's blood or tissue specimen collected at the time of a medically indicated blood draw or surgical procedure will be collected and banked for future research purposes. Sample collection will be performed on existing specimens, once the specimens have been obtained for medical indications.
