The Quebec Leukemia Cell Bank ethics committee has prepared the consent form for sample banking. Our team would like to acknowledge the outstanding contribution of David J. Roy, researcher and ethicist, for his work in the ethical and scientific committees of the BCLQ from 2000 to 2015.

The policies and standard operating procedures (SOP) of the BCLQ are in accordance with the CTRNet guidelines (policies and SOP).

The ethics committees of each participating hospital revise annually the BCLQ project and all modifications to the consent form or cell bank policies.
