Description:
This study is not a treatment trial.
The purpose of this research study is to investigate the differences in “natural killer” (NK) blood cells, a type of white blood cell that fights infection in the body, among different types of patients that have lung surgery.
This study consists of a one-time blood donation of approximately 4 teaspoons (or 2 tubes) of blood. A brief medical history will be taken and there is no follow-up.
We are looking to recruit 15 patients into each of the following 4 groups (total of 60 subjects):
Group 1: You are a smoker that has lung cancer.
Group 2: You are a smoker that does not have lung cancer.
Group 3: You are a non-smoker that has lung cancer.
Group 4: You are a non-smoker that does not have lung cancer.
