18F-FSPG PET / CT in Imaging Patients with Newly Diagnosed Lung Cancer or Indeterminate Pulmonary Nodules

Lung

This phase II trial compares fluorine F 18 L-glutamate derivative BAY94-9392 (18F-FSPG) positron emission tomography (PET) / computed tomography (CT) to the standard of care fludeoxyglucose F-18 (18F-FDG) PET / CT in imaging patients with newly diagnosed lung cancer or indeterminate pulmonary nodules. PET / CT uses a radioactive glutamate (one of the common building blocks of protein) called 18F-FSPG which may be able to recognize differences between tumor and healthy tissue. Since tumor cells are growing, they need to make protein, and other building blocks, for cell growth that are made from glutamate and other molecules. PET / CT using a radioactive glutamate may be a more effective method of diagnosing lung cancer than the standard PET / CT using a radioactive glucose (sugar), such as 18F-FDG.

Observation of Low-Dose Skin Electron Therapy in Patients with Refractory or Relapsed Stage IB-IIIA Mycosis Fungoides

Lymphoma

This trial collects data on response to low-dose skin electron therapy in patients with stage IB-IIIA mycosis fungoides that does not respond to treatment (refractory) or has come back (relapsed). Collecting data on patient's response to therapy, both in terms of changes in the skin and in terms of quality of life following treatment, may help doctors better predict response to therapy.

Long Term Follow-up for Early Detection of Lung Cancer in Current or Former Smokers

Lung

This research trial studies the long term follow-up for early detection of lung cancer in current or former smokers. Following up on smokers by collecting and analyzing specimens in the laboratory, performing chest computed tomography (CT) scans, as well as reviewing medical records may help doctors detect lung cancer at an earlier stage.
