specimen collection protocol
Specimen collection protocol
  • Baseline—All participants
    • Serum
    • Plasma (citrate & EDTA)
    • Buffy coat
    • Red blood cells
    • Urine (BMD subsample—3 sites only)
  • Follow-up: Blood
    • CT: 100% year 1, 6% years 3,6,9 (no DNA)
    • OS: 100% year 3
  • Follow-up: Urine
    • BMD subsample: 100% years 1,3,6,9 (no blood)
  • Details: www.whiscience.org/about/biospecimen.php

sources of biospecimen data
Sources of biospecimen data
  • CBC done by local labs on 100% of participants
    • CT/OS WBC, hematocrit, and platelet count at baseline [for eligibility assessment, NOT core analytes]
    • OS WBC at Year 3
  • Core analytes
    • Measured on 6% CT cohort, ~1% sample of OS
    • Analytes include micronutrients, lipid profile, clotting factors, insulin, glucose
  • Details: www.whiscience.org/about/biospecimen.php
other sources of biospecimen data completed whi studies
Other sources of biospecimen data:Completed WHI studies
  • Core studies
  • Ancillary studies
  • BAA studies
  • Collaborative studies
whi policy for biospecimen data
WHI policy for biospecimen data
  • All data derived from WHI biospecimens must be provided to the CCC.
  • All WHI investigators will have rights to use these data in accordance with WHI publications and ancillary study policies.
accessing biospecimen data
Accessing biospecimen data
  • Data derived from WHI (core) funds
    • Policy for access is the same as all other WHI data
    • Only CBC currently available on the website
  • Data derived from ancillary or BAA studies
    • Access to data protected until first publication or end of the funding period
    • WHI actively encourages collaboration with the AS/BAA PI
summary blood assay reports available on web sites

Blood assay information collected

Assay name


Type of specimen

Lab name

Assay method (if available)

Version number of assay

A change in any of the items above leads to a change in the version number.

some complexities of using existing biomarker data
Some complexities of using existing biomarker data
  • Nothing is available on everyone
  • Each study designed for specific goal
    • Cases and controls are not representative of the WHI population
  • Labs and/or methods may vary from one study to another
  • Pulling biomarker data from multiple unrelated studies not recommended
biospecimen use process
Biospecimen Use Process

Upon Approval and Funding:

Data Ops and Stat Unit Representatives Meet

Investigator Completes a Biospecimen & Participants Questionnaire

CCC hosts kick off conference call

Stat Unit selects participants

Data Ops Unit finalizes the biospecimen details and asks the investigator to ‘sign off’ on the “facts“

Database Unit creates the sample pulls and coordinates the processing and shipping
