Rapid and Simple Isolation of Circulating Tumor Cells for Clinical and Research Applications Using ScreenCell

Abstract :

Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are malignant cells shed by the primary tumor or metastases into the peripheral circulation. CTCs give rise to distant metastases that are usually the ultimate cause of cancer-related death. A significant proportion of patients with early stage cancer in whom no metastases are identifiable will ultimately relapse as a result of hematogenous spread of tumor cells that were undetected at initial diagnosis and treatment.
