Project: Research

Project Details

Description

The aim of this project is to enumerate and characterize circulating tumor cells in serial samples in patients scheduled for 1st line systemic therapy in relation to patient´s outcome and administrated systemic therapy. The enumeration is performed by the CellSearch system and the cells are characterized by determination of clusters and apoptosis, and molecular profiles based on protein- and genomic analyses enabling determination of clinically validated treatment predictive markers and exploration of genes related to tumor progression.
