Trial Information

Molecular Predictors of Lung Cancer Behavior: Controls


OBJECTIVES:

- To obtain biological specimens from healthy participants with no known risk of lung
cancer to use as controls in the study of lung cancer progression.

- To identify new molecular abnormalities specific to the development of squamous cell
carcinoma of the lung.

OUTLINE: Serum, urine, sputum, and buccal cell samples are collected. Patients also undergo
bronchoscopy for collection of bronchial tissue and bronchial brush samples. The samples are
used for genomic and proteomic studies to identify new molecular abnormalities specific to
the development of lung cancer.
