The purpose of this study is to screen chemotherapy drugs currently used to treat lung cancer and determine the most effective treatment based on results of chemo sensitivity testing on the patients own cancer cells in the laboratory. The results of this screening will not influence the patients treatment.
||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
||Chemotherapy Resistance and Sensitivity Testing in Lung Tumors
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Tumor size [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Tumor response will be evaluated (progression/regression) by CT scan at 3 months from therapy start.
Clinical response to chemotherapy of lung cancer tumor cells versus lung cancer stem cells to standard of care chemo drugs will be evaluated and correlated to predicted drug by ex vivo assay.

The chemosensitivity assay will be performed on tissue obtained during the diagnostic fine needle aspiration, core biopsy, or excisional biopsy of the lung lesion. Cancer cells (Bulk of tumor) and Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs) will be isolated and expanded in the laboratory.
The drug screening assay will be used to evaluate the response of the CSCs and of the cancer cells to the various chemotherapy regimens.
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Patients who have a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of lung cancer, and who are scheduled to have a diagnostic fine needle aspiration, core needle biopsy, or excisional biopsy of the lung lesion.
- Patient pathology shows benign pathology for sample submitted
- Patient is not indicated to receive chemotherapy for their disease
