About this study
The purpose of this study is to collect medical and personal histories, blood and/or tumor tissue samples from patients who are long-term survivors of lung cancer. This study will help us to develop better ways to provide care and advice, develop better treatments to minimize long-term side effects, and improve the quality of life and outcome of lung cancer patients. This study will also help us to learn whether certain genes (inherited factors from your parents) increase the risk of developing or dying of lung cancer.
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. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- All patients with pathologically confirmed primary lung cancer from March 1997 through June 2009, diagnosed at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN), will be eligible study subjects.
