Why is this Study Being Conducted?

DECAMP Study 1 is being carried out to understand the ability of different types of biospecimen tests to predict if an indeterminate lung nodule seen on a study participant's screening CT scan is benign (noncancerous) or is eventually found to be malignant (cancerous).

Study participants will receive standard-of-care clinical examinations, work-ups, and imaging scans to follow their condition, in addition to biospecimen tests that are part of the study. The results of these tests will be compared with a study participant's final diagnosis. This information may be used in the future to predict the behavior of similar lung nodules in other patients
