Lung Cancer Biospecimen Resource Network - Biospecimen Collection


Moskaluk Christopher, A

UVA Health System, Department of Pathology and Department of Surgery Division of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery seeks people over age 18 that have lung cancer. The purpose of this study is collect and store biologic specimens from people who have lung cancer for use in future research studies to help better diagnose and treat this disease. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer related death in men and women today. Doctors and scientists need samples from patients with lung cancer in order to do research to help better understand and treat this problem. Participants will be asked to donate a variety of samples to the specimen “bank”. The types of specimens wanted may include; tissue samples (from the cancer and surrounding lung tissue), blood, saliva, urine, sputum and/or bronchial washings (fluid which is collected during a procedure to “wash” or irrigate the lung and/or breathing passages). Specimens that are collected for this bank will be stored at the University of Virginia in a secure facility, called the Lung Cancer Biospecimen Resource Network (LCBRN). * You and/or your insurance will not be billed for donating specimens * There is no compensation for participation in this study.
