|Proteomic Profiling in Diagnosing Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer in Patients Who Are Undergoing Lung Resection for Suspicious Stage I Lung Lesions
RATIONALE: Evaluating specific proteins in the blood may be an effective and noninvasive procedure to help doctors determine if a patient has early non-small cell lung cancer.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying proteomic profiling to see how well it works in diagnosing non-small cell lung cancer in patients who are undergoing resection for suspicious (abnormal) stage I lung lesions.
Further Study Information
OUTLINE: Patients undergo lung resection. Patients also undergo preoperative and postoperative collection of whole blood and serum for proteomic profiling using surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry. A lung tissue biopsy taken at surgery is also analyzed.
Patients are followed at 60-90 days and then annually for 2-5 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 1,000 patients will be accrued for this study within 2 years.
