Participants required to take part in lung cancer clinical trial
Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust are testing a new and unique non-invasive screening test to detect non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) from a simple cheek swab with extremely high accuracy.
To get the technology approved for use in hospitals, they need to conduct a series of clinical trials. RADiCAL is the first clinical trial required to gain approval. 450 participants (including healthy volunteers, COPD patients and patients with suspected or confirmed lung cancer) will provide cheek swabs during a single visit to the clinic. These swabs will be analysed to demonstrate that there is a difference between cells from patients with and without lung cancer.
