About this study

The purpose of this study is to assess the use and performance of a genome sequencing test to identify multifocal lung cancer tumors, which can be treated with surgery or radiation, and advanced stage metastatic lung cancer, which has the option of palliative or supportive care.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.
