Survey and Blood Sample Collection for Patients With Lung Cancer Who Never Smoked Cigarettes
- To assess the feasibility of an internet-based protocol to collect clinical information
and biological specimens from 2,000 never smokers with non-small cell lung cancer.
- To perform genome-wide association studies to identify alleles that predispose to lung
cancer in patients that never smoked cigarettes.
Patients complete an internet-based questionnaire using the REDCap (Research Electronic Data
Capture) survey to determine eligibility. The survey consists of a detailed smoking
questionnaire and questions to collect information regarding diagnosis, sex, age, ethnicity,
treatment history, and any history of previous malignancies. Blood samples are then
collected from eligible patients for DNA and other laboratory analyses. Patients' pathology
reports are also reviewed.
