Survey and Blood Sample Collection for Patients With Lung Cancer Who Never Smoked Cigarettes

2014-08-27 03:28:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine if collecting information and blood from a group of people who never smoked but who have lung cancer, is possible across the US. The investigators will collect information on each patient's diagnosis and treatments. If the collection is successful, blood samples will be used to try to identify new genes (which are the basic elements of heredity, passed from parents to their offspring), which may explain and predict why certain patients develop lung cancer without having smoked tobacco.

Profiling of 179 miRNA Expression in Blood Plasma of Lung Cancer Patients and Cancer-Free Individuals.

Lung cancer is one of major cancers, and survival of lung cancer patients is dictated by the timely detection and diagnosis. Cell-free circulating miRNAs were proposed as candidate biomarkers for lung...

Prevalence of lung cancer in patients with interstitial lung disease is higher than in those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

We aimed to explore lung cancer prevalence in interstitial lung disease (ILD) patients with or without connective tissue disorder (CTD) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in comparison with chron...

No association between circulating concentrations of vitamin D and risk of lung cancer: An analysis in 20 prospective studies in the Lung Cancer Cohort Consortium (LC3).

There is observational evidence suggesting that high vitamin D concentrations may protect against lung cancer. To investigate this hypothesis in detail, we measured circulating vitamin D concentration...

Lower expression level of IL-33 is associated with poor prognosis of pulmonary adenocarcinoma.

Lung cancer is one of the deadliest malignancies. The immune checkpoint-blockade (ICB) tumor therapy has led to striking improvement of long-term survival for some lung cancer patients. However, the r...
