The purpose of the registry will be to support ongoing research in the etiology, early diagnosis, clinical management, and prognosis of lung cancer and other cancers and diseases of the thorax by developing a complete repository of specimens from patients with thoracic disease including but not limited to suspected lung cancer, mediastinal and pleural tumors and from patients at a very high risk of developing other thoracic cancers or other thoracic diseases.
The primary objective of this proposal is to develop a Thoracic Specimen Registry at Mayo Clinic. The purpose of the registry will be to support ongoing research in the etiology, early diagnosis, clinical management, and prognosis of lung cancer and other cancers and diseases of the thorax by developing a complete repository of specimens from patients with thoracic disease including but not limited to suspected lung cancer, mediastinal and pleural tumors and from patients at a very high risk of developing other thoracic cancers or other thoracic diseases. Collected specimens will include peripheral blood, bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid, pleural fluid, tissue (surgical resections & biopsies) and touch prep samples. The specimens will be stored in a central location at Mayo Clinic and managed by the Mayo Clinic Thoracic Specimen Registry Steering Committee. The registry will be a foundation for the development and implementation of research protocols and clinical trials that will enhance current knowledge of etiology and detection, discovery of new molecular and biochemical markers for screening, early diagnosis, and develop state-of-the-art therapeutic and preventive interventions for managing patients with, or at risk for, thoracic cancers or other thoracic diseases.

The role of adjuvant radiation therapy (RT) in the management of thoracic soft-tissue sarcomas (STS) remains unclear. We aimed to study the characteristics of patients with thoracic STS who received R...
Thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (TAAD) are rare in children and often associated with underlying genetic disorders accompanied with other systemic manifestations, including connective or ost...
Diseases that exhibit signs and symptoms suggestive of a connective tissue disease that do not fulfill clinical or diagnostic criteria for any one defined disease but overlap with criteria of multiple such diseases. Commonly overlapping diseases include systemic autoimmune connective tissue diseases such as RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS; and SYSTEMIC SCLEROSIS.
Disorders affecting the organs of the thorax.
Diseases of the cervical (and first thoracic) roots, nerve trunks, cords, and peripheral nerve components of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Clinical manifestations include regional pain, PARESTHESIA; MUSCLE WEAKNESS, and decreased sensation (HYPESTHESIA) in the upper extremity. These disorders may be associated with trauma (including BIRTH INJURIES); THORACIC OUTLET SYNDROME; NEOPLASMS; NEURITIS; RADIOTHERAPY; and other conditions.

Surgery performed on the thoracic organs, most commonly the lungs and the heart.
New abnormal growth of tissue in the THORAX.
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
