Expanded Lung Cancer Screening Research Study

Trial Objective

The purpose of this study is to look at current and former smokers who are actively enrolled in lung cancer screening programs and gain information to improve the diagnosis and treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

We would like to look at CT scan images you have already had done as part of a lung cancer screening program. We will also like to do a breathing test (spirometry) and obtain blood and DNA to identify genetic factors that may increase or decrease risk of disease and will look for blood factors that may be used to identify disease early before symptoms develop. These are called biomarkers.


This trial is active and currently recruiting.
