  Purpose

This is a research study where researchers are collecting blood to evaluate the genetic characteristics of individuals with chronic lung diseases, including asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), interstitial lung disease, cystic fibrosis, and lung cancer.


Condition
Asthma
COPD
Interstitial Lung Disease
Cystic Fibrosis
Lung Cancer

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case Control

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

In this study, a small amount of blood for extraction of DNA for the study of the genetic basis of lung disease will be obtained from each subject. The collected blood (cells and serum) will be used for genetic testing in studies relating to the genetic material and/or gene expression, and/or studies of proteins or other substances in serum (the liquid portion of the blood after it has been allowed to clot). Because these latter protein studies will occur at a future date, the serum will be stored for use in these studies.


Estimated Enrollment: 600

Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
1: Lung Disease
Individuals with at least one of the following: (1)symptoms consistent with pulmonary disease; (2) chest X-ray consistent with lung disease; (3) pulmonary function tests consistent with lung disease; (4) lung biopsy consistent with lung disease; (5) family history of lung disease; (6) patients with diseases of organs with known association with lung disease; (7) individuals suspected of history of lung diseased based on history and/or physical examination
2: Normal Controls
Individuals without a history of lung disease

Detailed Description:

The investigators hope to be able to identify an association between a genetic make-up in the blood samples and the risks of developing a particular lung disease, or severity of a lung disease. The findings of this study might be important to develop future preventative methods and potential treatments for the management of lung disease. The investigators aim to collect blood samples from 300 people with lung disease and 300 controls over 5 years.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

Individuals visiting the Starr-5 Pulmonary, Critical Care Unit, and 5 West floor for standard clinical care will be recruited. Controls will be obtained from volunteers without a history of lung disease.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Must provide informed consent

  • Lung disease proven by at least one of the following:

    • symptoms consistent with pulmonary disease
    • chest X-rays consistent with lung disease
    • pulmonary function tests consistent with lung disease
    • lung biopsy consistent with lung disease
    • family history of lung disease
    • disease of organs with know associated with lung disease
    • individuals suspected of history of lung disease based on history and/or physical examination
    • normal controls (individuals without history of lung disease) to be sampled to provide a comparison to the lung disease cohort.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Drug and/or alcohol abuse within the past six months
  • Females who are pregnant or nursing
