The Use of Circulating Tumor Cells in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: Novel Isolation Methods and Clinical Applications

Medicine

Dang Thao,

UVa Health System Department of Medicine Division of Hematology Oncology Seeks Volunteers 18 and Older with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer for a research study. The purpose of the study is to see if there is a connection between the number of tumor cells in your blood and the stage of your lung cancer. We want to know if the numbers of tumor cells in the bloodstream are affected by cancer treatments. The study involves donating 1 tube (2 teaspoons) of blood approximately every 6 weeks for a total of 3 sample tubes. The blood will be collected during routine blood draws for standard medical treatment. No compensation is provided for this study.
