Enumeration and characterization of circulating tumor cells in serial samples from metastatic breast cancer patients scheduled for 1st line systemic therapy

Project: Research

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.
