Pacific Health Research Institute Awarded $2.8 Million in Research Funding
Date:8/31/2009

Funds will extend the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST).

Honolulu, HI (Vocus) August 31, 2009 -- The Honolulu-based Pacific Health Research Institute (PHRI) has received $2.8 million in research funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to continue the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), a major lung cancer screening study in Hawaii, for two more years.

Since 2002, PHRI has participated in the NLST, a research study that has been comparing the effectiveness of two screening methods - spiral computerized tomography (CT) and chest X-ray - in detecting lung cancer in current and former smokers before they show symptoms of the disease. PHRI is one of 33 NLST screening centers in the United States. Approximately 50,000 people are participating in the nationwide study.

"The NLST and its companion study - the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening Trial - are poised to answer, within the next several years, a question of vital importance to public health: Can screening for lung cancer with spiral CT or chest X-ray lower the mortality from lung cancer? The continued contribution of the participants in these studies makes this possible," said Christine D. Berg, M.D., Chief of NCI's Early Detection Research Group and Project Officer for the NLST and PLCO.
