Detection of Plasma DNA in Non Small Cell and Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The majority of lung cancer patients have a tumor-derived genetic alteration in circulating plasma DNA that could be exploited as a diagnostic tool. The aim of this study is to evaluate if plasma DNA can be used as a valuable non invasive test to monitor disease progression without assessing the tumor.
