Metabolomic Analysis of Lung Cancer
The purpose of this study is to learn more about the metabolic properties of cancer cells of patients undergoing surgical removal of small cell and non-small cell lung cancer.
It has long been known that cancer cells absorb and break down substances in the body differently than healthy, non-cancer cells. This process of absorbing and breaking down substances is known as metabolism and is increased in cancer cells. Recent research suggests that this increased metabolic activity makes it easier for cancer cells to multiply. The objective of the study is to characterize the metabolism of glucose by the tumors of patients undergoing surgical resection of small cell and non-small cell lung cancer by serum metabolite analysis, using a variant of glucose (sugar) which makes up 1% of glucose in nature.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
Small Cell Lung Carcinoma
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
Carcinoma, Non-small-cell Lung
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
Carcinoma, Small Cell
An anaplastic, highly malignant, and usually bronchogenic carcinoma composed of small ovoid cells with scanty neoplasm. It is characterized by a dominant, deeply basophilic nucleus, and absent or indistinct nucleoli. (From Stedman, 25th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1286-7)
Carcinoma, Lewis Lung
A carcinoma discovered by Dr. Margaret R. Lewis of the Wistar Institute in 1951. This tumor originated spontaneously as a carcinoma of the lung of a C57BL mouse. The tumor does not appear to be grossly hemorrhagic and the majority of the tumor tissue is a semifirm homogeneous mass. (From Cancer Chemother Rep 2 1972 Nov;(3)1:325) It is also called 3LL and LLC and is used as a transplantable malignancy.
The purpose of this study is to correlate molecular genetic profile with response to chemotherapy in case of primary chemotherapy treatment for non-small cells lung carcinoma.
The purpose of this study is to predict responses to Erbitux as a single agent in patients with Non Small Cell Lung Cancer
Taxol and carboplatin are commonly used drugs for the treatment of stage IIIB or IV non small cell lung carcinoma. This study compares treatment with Taxol/carboplatin given every 3 weeks...
The association between cancer and thrombosis is well known and the occurrence of thrombotic complications is commonly associated with poor prognosis. The aim os this study is to determine...
A Phase 1-2 study of MM-121 in combination with standard therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
INTRODUCTION: Large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma is an aggressive variant of large-cell carcinoma of the lung, which has poor survival in most series, resembling that of small-cell lung carcinoma. We...
Pleomorphic carcinoma of the lung is a subtype of sarcomatoid carcinoma and essentially classified as a poorly-differentiated, non-small cell lung carcinoma. Being a very rare tumor, it consti...
The purpose of the present study was to determine the expression of Sca-1, the stem cell marker, among various lung cancers and evaluate their utility. Immunohistochemistry was done in 151 surgically...
D2-40 is a recently developed monoclonal antibody that reacts with a 40 kDa O-linked sialoglycoprotein and has been used for the assessment of lymphatic invasion in tumor specimens. We have evaluated...
Thyroid carcinomas and lung adenocarcinoma share cytomorphological features yet have different prognoses. Thyroid Transcription Factor-1 (TTF-1) is an immunohistochemical (IHC) marker used to confirm...
