Further study details as provided by Integrated Diagnostics:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence rate of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer [ Time Frame: 24 months after enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    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 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    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

Estimated Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: October 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2015 (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
