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.
This trial is intended to evaluate the value of circulating tumor cells (CTC), in combination with unenhanced (without injection of contrast media) low dose (to limit the effective radiation dose below 1,5 mSv) chest computed tomography (LDCT) in the screening of Lung cancer (LC). LDCT screening was shown to reduce LC mortality in smokers and ex-smokers, older than 55 years, with a history of more than 30 pack-years. LDCT however shows a close to 30% rate of false positi...
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.
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 ...
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...
We wish to discover if there is a difference in the presentation, response to treatment and survival of never- smokers with lung cancer as compared to ever- smokers. We also plan to obtain tumor specimens to compare the genetic and proteomic expression between smokers and never smokers
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.
Current smokers who undergo annual low dose CT (LDCT) lung cancer screening and successfully quit smoking derive the greatest reduction in lung cancer mortality. Unfortunately, those at highest risk of lung cancer death- those with low socioeconomic status, blacks, and current smokers- are the same individuals that typically have reduced access to preventive healthcare such as smoking cessation services and screening tests. Furthermore, patients from underserved communities oft...
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.
Lung cancer suffers from large racial and socioeconomic disparities. Yet those at the highest risk of lung cancer death - current smokers, blacks, and individuals with low socioeconomic status (SES) and negative social determinants of health (SDH) - are less likely to receive preventive health services, including the two most effective interventions to reduce lung cancer mortality: tobacco dependence treatment and lung cancer screening (LCS) with low-dose computed tomography (L...
DNA adducts in the oral mucosa cells of 100 smokers from 3 ethnic groups - Native Hawaiians, Whites, and Japanese Americans with differing risks for lung cancer upon cigarette smoking will be quantified. DNA adducts of tobacco smoke carcinogens will be quantified using both targeted and untargeted approaches.
Objectives: This protocol addresses the first phase of a larger project funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute to help heavy smokers make informed decisions about lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography (CT). A separate IRB protocol will be submitted for the larger, comparative study. In this initial development phase, our prototype patient decision aid will be updated to reflect current guidelines about lung cancer screening. The upda...
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...
The risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) is significant among cancer survivors treated with abdominal radiation therapy (RT). Further, CRC is once of the few cancers for which there is effective screening. Although some expert groups recommend early CRC screening for patients with prior abdominal RT, the effectiveness of early screening is unknown. It is also unknown if radiation-induced CRC passes through a "pre-clinical" phase in which precancerous polyps are detectable and trea...
RATIONALE: Learning about oral cancer screening practices, knowledge, and opinions of Ohio nursing home dentists may help the study of oral cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying oral cancer screening among nursing home dentists in Ohio.
The aim of this study is to detect P53 expression in clinically normal oral mucosa of cigarette smokers, simultaneous cigarette and cannabis smokers and non-smokers as a surrogate marker for field cancerization.
This study intends to evaluate the nasal mucociliary clearance (NMC) by determining the value obtained for saccharin transit time (STT) test over the course of 12 hours following a single cigarette use in smokers, to compare it relative to never smokers, and to examine the relationship between plasma nicotine levels and STT value in smokers and never smokers. Safety will also be monitored during the study. The planned maximum study duration for a single study participant from ...
This study will evaluate the value of providing proactive behavioral (telephone counseling) and pharmacotherapy (cessation medication) treatment to current smokers as a part of participating in lung cancer screening. The primary objective of the study is to compare this proactive smoking cessation care with usual, unstructured smoking cessation care among smokers receiving lung cancer screening. Based on prior studies and the investigators' pilot data, the trial is powered to d...
This study will explore the safety and efficacy of the oral PanHER inhibitor PF-00299804 in patients with adenocarcinoma of the lung who are either non-smokers (
Low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) is recommended for early-stage lung cancer screening. However, it is often difficult to determine indolent lesions from more aggressive tumors without an invasive intervention or prolonged follow-up period. Thus, the main purpose of this study is to develop a non-invasive method to detect lung-cancer specific circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in blood, which can greatly improve the specificity of lung cancer early screening.
Smokers with asthma display a relative insensitivity to inhaled and oral corticosteroids. The causes of this phenomenon are currently unknown. The investigators will perform a number of blood & breathing tests to try to discover the cause/s behind this phenomenon with the aim of producing leads for further investigation and possible new treatments for smokers with asthma.
The overall objective of this work is to identify changes in the optical properties of oral tissues to develop a non-invasive tool for the detection, diagnosis and screening of oral pathology so that treatment can be provided at the earliest possible time.
Doctors at MSKCC are doing this research study to see if smokers are interested in the idea that genes might be markers of cancer risk, and to see if smokers would want to learn this information about their risk if it were available. Different versions of the gene called UGT1A7 are found in different people. Certain versions of this gene can increase the risk of cancer in people. In this study, doctors will determine the different types of UGT1A7 in smokers and find out whethe...
This cross-sectional study will assess the prevalence of oral changes among smokers in an Egyptian cohort (patients attending to the hospital of Faculty of Dentistry - Cairo University), aiming that this study can serve as a baseline for future studies with the goal of finding ways to improve oral health and increase awareness of the hazards of smoking in Egypt
