At my lab we  have made some TMAs and usually don't have a problem with
HIPPA with the IRB approval. The IRB approval is not an easy process, and
the blocks & tumor information come with no patient ID info. I would be
interested to hear of others experience with IRB, HIPPA, etc... I do agree
with Jackie - HIPPA HIPPA Hooray. It's a headache.
