This research is a randomized smoking cessation trial conducted within and specifically personalized for lung cancer screening patients presenting to a lung screening clinic. Novel tobacco treatments for this population are critically needed, given the growing population of lung screening patients, which will grow dramatically now that lung screening is an approved CMS benefit. In the proposed study, we will test a gain-framed messaging intervention specifically designed for lu...
This study evaluates the feasibility of a clinical informatics system-based approach to lung cancer screening. Patients of a large academic medical center who may qualify for lung cancer screening will be sent an electronic invitation to complete an online lung cancer screening decision aid.
RATIONALE: Screening tests that use biomarkers may help doctors find tumor cells early and plan effective treatment for lung cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying biomarkers in screening participants for lung cancer.
RATIONALE: Screening may help doctors find lung cancer sooner, when it may be easier to treat. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying screening methods to see how well they find lung cancer early in current or former smokers.
Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the USA. Early stage lung cancer is asymptomatic. Most patients with lung cancer are usually symptomatic at diagnosis and already have advanced stage disease. Low dose CT screening (LDCT) for high risk individuals has recently been shown to decrease lung cancer mortality by 20%. However, 4 out of 5 lung cancer deaths are not prevented with LDCT screening alone.
RATIONALE: Screening tests, such as sputum cytology, may help doctors find tumor cells early and plan better treatment for lung cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well sputum cytology works in screening heavy smokers for lung cancer.
The investigators will conduct nationally representative survey in chest physicians in Egypt in 2016-2017. Self-adminstered questionnaires will be used to assess the physicians' knowledge of lung cancer screening guidelines, beliefs about the effectiveness of screening tests, and ordering of screening chest radiograph, low-dose spiral computed tomography, or sputum cytology in the past 12 months.
The primary objective of this study is to assess the effect of the decision aid on measures of decision-making such as knowledge, screening attitudes, decisional conflict, and screening intent.
RATIONALE: Screening tests may help doctors find depression in patients with lung cancer, allow doctors to recommend treatment for depression, and improve the patient's quality of life. PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying how well depression screening works when the results are or are not shared with patients with lung cancer and their doctor.
RATIONALE: Screening for cancer may enable doctors to discover and treat the disease earlier. PURPOSE: Randomized trial to determine if screening methods used to diagnose cancer of the prostate, lung, colon, rectum, or ovaries can reduce deaths from these cancers.
Lung cancer is by far the leading cause of cancer death and has a lower relative survival rate than other types of cancer because most lung cancers are detected at an advanced stage when they are first diagnosed. Recently, a randomized control trial suggests that low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) enables an early stage detection and it has been increasingly accepted as an efficient screening method for high-risk individuals to reduce lung cancer mortality. In 2011, Th...
Early detection of lung cancer may improve treatment outcomes. Risk factors have been identified, suggesting a population which might benefit from regular screening. Lung cancer screening using low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) has experienced a recent renaissance with reported sensitivity for detection of lung cancer of 2.7% in high-risk populations. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the utility of LCDT for the early diagnosis of lung cancer in Ontario.
Veterans have a high risk of developing lung in comparison to general populations due to their older age and smoking history. Recent evidence indicates that lung cancer screening with low dose CT scan reduces lung cancer mortality among older heavy smokers. However, the rates of false positive findings are high, requiring further testing and evaluation. Preliminary studies report that while some Veterans are enthusiastic about screening, others are highly reluctant. Patient pre...
This study has two main aims. The first one is to examine how to deliver a lung cancer screening service in North Central and North East London and Essex. At the moment, the best way of finding early lung cancer is a special type of x-ray called a low dose Computed Tomography (LDCT) scan. LDCT screening is currently available in the USA to those at higher risk of getting lung cancer. The second aim of this study is to develop a blood test to find lung cancer at an early stage,...
The present study is a randomized controlled trial of LDCT screening for lung cancer versus usual care. 6000 high-risk subjects (age 45-70) were recruited and randomized to the Active arm (Baseline + 2 biennial repeated LDCT screening) or to the Passive arm, followed up in usual care (Baseline + 2 biennial repeated questionnaire inquiries). Follow-up for lung cancer incidence, lung cancer mortality and overall mortality was performed. Blood samples were stored from the Active a...
This study utilizes the low dose computed tomography(LDCT) to detect the occurrence of early lung cancer among non-smokers in Taiwan. Subjects who have family history of lung cancer or have high risk exposures to lung cancer will be recruited to participate LDCT screening and followed up for their possible occurrence of lung cancer.
RATIONALE: Screening tests or exams may help doctors find lung cancer sooner, when it may be easier to treat. PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying screening tests or exams to see how well they work compared to usual care in finding early stage lung cancer in current or past smokers with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
RATIONALE: Screening tests may help doctors detect cancer cells early and plan more effective treatment for lung cancer. It is not yet known whether helical computed tomography is more effective than chest x-ray in detecting lung cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized clinical trial to compare the effectiveness of helical computed tomography with that of chest x-ray in screening individuals who are at high risk for lung cancer.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether patients with colorectal cancer understand that their first-degree relatives are at increased risk of getting the cancer themselves and therefore should be screened early. Among patients who do understand the risks to their family, we plan to determine who they identify as the source of their information and whether they have acted upon this information and advised family members to be screened. We hypothesize that many patients ...
This is a randomized controlled trial to test whether a money-management based intervention reduces substance abuse.
The present study is a single arm clinical trial aiming to improve the key technology in the diagnosis and treatment of early stage lung cancer. 60,000 high-risk subjects (age 45-70) are planned to recruit and assign to the LDCT screening arm (Baseline + 2 rounds of biennial repeated LDCT screening). Management of positive screening test will be carried out by a pre-specified protocol.
This study is to help determine the most effective type or combination of treatments to offer patients seeking lung cancer screening who are smokers to help them reduce the number of cigarettes they smoke, or quit smoking. The investigators long term goal is to increase the benefits of lung cancer screening by providing a blue print of best practices for screening sites to deliver tobacco treatment to their patients who are smokers, in a way that does not add burden to screenin...
This study evaluates the feasibility and acceptability of LuCaS Choices, a web-based decision aid designed to facilitate informed decision making about participation in lung cancer screening among individuals at high risk of lung cancer due to heavy cigarette smoking.
Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in Taiwan. Early diagnosis of lung cancer may improve cancer survival. Low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) was thought to be the best screening tool for lung cancer. However, there is growing concerns about radiation exposure, high cost, and high rate of false-positive screening result. Epidemiologic studies from western countries showed that cigarette smoking is the major cause of lung cancer, and other risk fact...
ITALUNG is a RCT for the evaluation of the efficacy of lung cancer screening with low-dose Computer Tomography (LDCT) , carried out in three screening centers in Florence, Pisa and Pistoia districts of the Tuscany region of Italy. 3106 high risk subjects (age 55-69, smokers or ex-smokers) were recruited and randomized to the Active arm (Baseline + 3 annually repeated LDCT screening) or to the Passive arm, followed up in usual care (no screening raccomended ) All subjects were ...
