Last verified: January 2015
The primary objective is to identify a panel of plasma and/or serum proteins that differentiates the absence or presence of lung malignancy in samples obtained from subjects enrolled in this IRB/EC approved study with pulmonary nodules.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence rate of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer [ Time Frame: 24 months after enrollment ]
    The incidence rate of non-small cell lung cancer in the study population will be correlated to the predictive value of the Sponsor's blood test.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Panel of proteins [ Time Frame: At the end of the study ]
    The positive and negative predictive value of the test to differentiate between malignancy and inflammatory diseases such as granulomatous disorders.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Blood samples

Enrollment: 475
Study Start Date: October 2012
Study Completion Date: December 2014
Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
Blood samples are obtained from those patients undergoing procedures to determine if a lung nodule is benign or cancerous. The data from the study will not be used to guide or influence the treatment of the patients enrolled in this study. There is no change from the normal standard of care that patients receive.

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients undergoing procedure for histologic diagnosis of lung nodule(s)

Inclusion Criteria:

  • age ≥ 40
  • any smoking status, e.g. current, former, or never
  • co-morbid conditions, e.g. COPD
  • Nodule size ≥ 4 mm and ≤ 30 mm (up to Stage 2B eligible), any spiculation or ground glass opacity
  • Pathology: malignant - adenocarcinoma, squamous, or large cell
  • Pathology: benign - inflammatory (e.g. granulomatous, infectious) or non-inflammatory (e.g. hamartoma)
  • Clinical stage, Primary tumor: ≤T2 (e.g. 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B)
  • Clinical stage, Regional lymph nodes: N0 or N1 only
  • Clinical stage, Distant metastasis: M0 only

Exclusion Criteria:

  • prior malignancy within 5 years of lung nodule diagnosis
  • No nodule size available
  • No pathology data available for those with
  • Current diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer
  • Clinical stage: Primary tumor ≥T3; Regional lymph nodes: ≥N2; 4 Distant metastasis: ≥M1
