CLINICAL DATA ELEMENTS
The CTB2 agreed and established a core set of clinical information which would be important for Investigator's biomarker research. The agreed information, or what we call 'Clinical Data Elements', is collected in all Biorepository studies, remains completely anonmyized, and is stored long-term with the samples. When you receive samples, you will also receive the accompanying clinical information to aid your research.
Note: In addition to the clinical information, investigators will receive patients' corresponding culture isolates data when available.
