This trial is evaluating whether 18F-FMISO will improve 2 primary outcomes and 1 secondary outcome in patients with Anoxia. Measurement will happen over the course of 2 years.
This trial requires 29 total participants across 1 different treatment group
This trial involves a single treatment. 18F-FMISO is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Commonly, patients with carcinoma, non-small-cell lung receive chemotherapy, endoscopic image-guided ablation, thoracic radiotherapy, surgery (whole thorax pneumonectomy or lobectomy), or chemotherapy in combination. Other common therapies include endoscopic image-guided ablation, embolisation, percutaneous ethanol injection therapy, radiosurgery, cryosurgery, and chemotherapy." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"If the carcinoma is not caused by smoking, other causes may be present. These include the other carcinoma susceptibility genes. Although the presence of specific cancer risk factors has not been demonstrated as in colorectal, bladder and pancreas cancer, there is also considerable interest in studies of the effect of genetic risk factors on prostate cancer risk." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There are many types of [lung cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/lung-cancer), some of which are different depending on which lobe of the lung is involved. They include the lower, middle, and upper lung; and some small cell, bronchial, and small cell lung cancer types. Symptoms include shortness of breath, especially when lying flat, unexplained weight loss or unintentional weight loss, and coughing up blood or blood-stained sputum. Lung cancer has the largest overall 5-year survival rate of all cancers worldwide and the highest survival rate in people who smoke tobacco. If the disease is detected early, lung cancer can be treated and many people diagnosed early have a chance of recovery." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The signs of carinoma, non-small-cell lung are generally related to tissue effects rather than specific changes in the lungs on an underlying level. Specific signs involve lung infiltrates on chest X-ray and may be more common in an advanced stage of the disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"around 4 million Americans are afflicted with [lung cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/lung-cancer), with the number expected to increase in the U.S. to more than 22 million by 2015 when there will be an additional 9,900 new cases of lung cancer. Lung cancer is a common form of cancer in the United States." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Based on our patient population, it is difficult to state that either lung cancer surgery or adjuvant therapies can cure NSCLC. Further studies based on prospective cohorts and randomized trials evaluating adjuvant therapies or specific surgery protocols are needed to conclude that lung cancer can be cured." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"This is a common concern among patients being considered for PET/CT and/or PET/MRI, and can be addressed in a variety of ways. Care should be taken at all times during PET/CT imaging to avoid potential injuries to the patient from moving equipment, the radioactive material, or the scanner itself. There is evidence that PET/MRI can also cause similar side effects with higher risks of injury. The impact of most side effects on quality of life is unknown, although given the magnitude and burden of side effects, efforts to reduce side effects should be pursued no matter the imaging modality." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There may be additional potential for targeting EGFR-TKIs instead of non-tyrosine kinase targeting agents for carcinoma, non-small-cell lung cancer. A possible future development is to use EGFR-TKI combined with a Bcl-2 inhibitor to reduce the resistance of carcinoma, non-small-cell lung cancer." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Results from a recent paper have provided some evidence to support the hypothesis that certain genes with an important role in [lung cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/lung-cancer)s are inherited from a common ancestor. However, a significant environmental component must remain so that all cancers in relatives is a true indicator of genetic liability." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"In a retrospective case series, a significant percentage of animals treated with CT scan for Feline non-small-cell lung cancer had concurrent skin cancers in the same location, as did a smaller percentage of Feline Follicular cell sarcomas. It is necessary to inform patients with this concurrent skin cancers that they are at risk for developing these secondary tumors." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The two most important factors influencing NSCLC risk are lifestyle factors and environmental exposures. Smoking cessation or cessation of passive exposure to tobacco-related carcinogens had a strong association with NSCLC, especially adenocarcinoma. The effects of passive exposure to passive smoke in general were not clarified due to the complexity of the study design." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Although we were not able to verify the effect of therapy on survival, we found that several patients with a good overall survival benefited from the clinical trials of carcinoma, non-small-cell lung." - Anonymous Online Contributor
