Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Using Biomarkers for Diagnosis, Risk Stratification of Post -Treatment Recurrence and Long-Term Surveillance of Lung Cancer
This study is designed to evaluate the accuracy of lung cancer biomarkers found in the blood in determining if a lung nodule is cancer or benign. Investigators also plan to use another biomarker found in the tumor tissue to identify participants after lung cancer surgery who have a high risk for recurrent cancer so that they can be offered additional drug treatment that will improve their chances of long-term cure. Finally, investigators plan to use one of the blood-based biomarkers to detect any late cancer recurrence
Potentially-resectable lung nodule 8-40 mm diameter suspected (no preop diagnosis) of being a clinically node-negative lung cancer [clinical stage IA-IB (cT1a-T2aN0), <4cm diameter].
If surgical resection is recommended, patient will undergo surgery at Moffitt Cancer Center.
If a definite tissue diagnosis is obtained and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is the recommended treatment instead of surgery, the SBRT will be delivered at Moffitt Cancer Center.
