Hello, Our institution does release blocks, the requirement is that a patient consent is signed and we have an MTA (Material Transfer Agreement) For the study and appropriate IRB's in place for the study. It is a lot to set up, but after this is done for one study any following studies are easier to handle.

I have been asked to post a query as to what your institution does in terms
of releasing blocks for oncology clinical trials. Please respond as it is
important to us as we receive a lot of those blocks here at Northwestern
(policies, procedures, alternative submissions etc) If you are in Australia,
Ireland, Canada, Puerto Rico or Peru please also answer (though I sort of
know already) as we do get blocks from you also.
