  Purpose

RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood, urine, sputum, mouth cells, and bronchial tissue from healthy participants in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer. It may also help doctors learn more about the development of cancer.

PURPOSE: This laboratory study is looking for molecular markers in predicting lung cancer development using tissue samples from healthy participants.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Collection of biological specimens to use as controls in the study of lung cancer progression [ Time Frame: Off study date, up to one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Specimens are collected from healthy participants with no known risk of lung cancer


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Identification of new molecular abnormalities specific to the development of squamous cell carcinoma of the lung [ Time Frame: off-study date, up to one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Selection of important genes/proteins differentially expressed between study groups (e.g., normal vs low-grade vs high-grade vs invasive) and between normal smokers vs normal non-smokers [ Time Frame: off-study date, up to one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 37
Study Start Date: April 2008
Study Completion Date: August 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Healthy, non-smokers Genetic: proteomic profiling
Collection of tissue, blood, urine, mouth cells, spit, nasal airway cells and breath
Other: biologic sample preservation procedure
Collection of tissue, blood, urine, mouth cells, spit, nasal airway cells and breath
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
Collection of tissue, blood, urine, mouth cells, spit, nasal airway cells and breath
Procedure: bronchoscopy
Collection of breath condensate.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To obtain biological specimens from healthy participants with no known risk of lung cancer to use as controls in the study of lung cancer progression.
  • To identify new molecular abnormalities specific to the development of squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.

OUTLINE: Serum, urine, sputum, and buccal cell samples are collected. Patients also undergo bronchoscopy for collection of bronchial tissue and bronchial brush samples. The samples are used for genomic and proteomic studies to identify new molecular abnormalities specific to the development of lung cancer.
