Blood Sample Collection in Subjects With Pulmonary Nodules or CT Suspicion of Lung Cancer or Pathologically Diagnosed Lung Cancer

2018-08-20 19:52:14 | BioPortfolio


The primary objective of this study is to obtain de-identified, clinically characterized, whole blood specimens for use in assessing new biomarkers for the detection of neoplasms of the lung. Subjects will be men and women, 35 years of age and older, with a CT confirmed nodule measuring 6-30 mm.


Subjects with pulmonary nodules, a suspicion of lung cancer or pathologically confirmed, untreated lung cancer will be enrolled. Blood samples will be collected at enrollment and may be collected at 12 months for subjects with pulmonary nodules. Radiological and pathological data will be collected to confirm a cancer diagnosis or up to 2 years to assess nodule resolution.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.

The fraction of a blood sample, following CENTRIFUGATION, that is distinguished as a thin light-colored layer between the RED BLOOD CELLS, underneath it, and the PLASMA, above it. It is composed mostly of WHITE BLOOD CELLS and PLATELETS.

The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.

The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.

The analysis of a chemical substance by inserting a sample into a carrier stream of reagent using a sample injection valve that propels the sample downstream where mixing occurs in a coiled tube, then passes into a flow-through detector and a recorder or other data handling device.
