Clinical Trial VICCTHO1078
Nashville Early Diagnosis Lung Cancer Project
- Protocol No. VICCTHO1078
- Open Date: 04/12/2011
- Staging: N/A
- Age Group: Adults
- Scope: Local
- Objective: To analyze the associate between suspected lung cancer risk factors and outcomes such as pre-malignant lesions and diagnosis of lung cancer. To identify and validate biomarkers that are associated with lung cancer risk factors and pre-malignant lesions. To assess the association between patient characteristics and test results to the genetic and histological characteristics of lung preinvasive lesions and cancers. To describe this high-risk cohort and to identify the patients eligible for future clinical trials (e.g. chemoprevention).
