Liquid Biopsy in Rare Cancers: Lessons from Hemangiopericytoma

Icon Written by ScreenCell on February 22, 2019 – 12:22 pm

Abstract Hemangiopericytoma (HPT) is a rare mesenchymal tumor of fibroblastic type and for its rarity is poorly studied. The most common sites of metastatic disease in patients with intracranial HPT are the bone, liver, and lung, suggestive for an hematogenous dissemination; for this reason, we investigated, for the first time, the presence of circulating tumor […]



Isolation and characterization of circulating melanoma cells by size filtration and fluorescent in-situ hybridization

Icon Written by ScreenCell on February 8, 2018 – 3:41 pm

Isolation and characterization of circulating melanoma cells by size filtration and fluorescent in-situ hybridization. Yanagita M1,2, Luke JJ2,3, Hodi FS2,3, Jänne PA1,2,3, Paweletz CP1,2. Abstract Isolation of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from blood of melanoma patients has been difficult owing to inconsistent expression of surface antigens. Here we report on the isolation, detection, and characterization […]

Perioperative detection of circulating tumour cells in patients with lung cancer

Icon Written by ScreenCell on June 23, 2017 – 3:35 pm

Perioperative detection of circulating tumour cells in patients with lung cancer. Chudasama D1,2, Burnside N1, Beeson J1, Karteris E2, Rice A3, Anikin V1. Abstract Lung cancer is a leading cause of mortality and despite surgical resection a proportion of patients may develop metastatic spread. The detection of circulating tumour cells (CTCs) may allow for improved […]
