RATIONALE: Doctors can diagnose lung cancer by collecting mucus coughed up from the lungs and examining it under a microscope to look for cancer cells. Breathing in INS316 may make it easi...
The purpose of this study is to compare the features that the pathologist sees, when examining a lung tumor under the microscope, to the way that the tumor appears on the computed tomograp...
Primary Objective: - To determine the clinical sensitivity and specificity of the Biomoda CyPath™ Early Lung Cancer Detection Assay using sputum specimens from two cohorts of pa...
The Tomey EM-4000 Specular Microscope is designed to observe and analyze corneal endothelium.
A reflectance confocal microscope is a machine which is able to examine the upper layers of the skin painlessly and without the need for taking a biopsy. We would like to examine the image...
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Germany. Although several randomized trials in Europe have evaluated the effectiveness of lung cancer screening programs, evidence on the cost-effec...
November marks Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and reminds us that lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States. In this brief report, we highlight CDC resources that...
While lung cancer screening has been implemented in the United States, it is still under consideration in Europe. So far, lung cancer screening trials in Europe were not able to replicate the results ...
Inherited genetic determinants of lung cancer risk remain relatively elusive. Germline mutations in EGFR and ERBB2 have been previously reported in lung cancers, which may be associated with genetic s...
Self-reported smoking is the principal measure used to assess lung cancer risk in epidemiological studies. We evaluated if circulating cotinine-a nicotine metabolite and biomarker of recent tobacco ex...
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
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.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
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.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
