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 research ethics board (REB) of the CIUSSS de l’Est-de-l’Île-de-Montréal evaluates the BCLQ program annually in collaboration with the REB of participating hospitals, as well as modifications to the BCLQ information and consent form, the management framework and biobank policies.
