Abstract

Background: Tumor cells that are identified in transit within the blood stream are referred to as circulating tumor cells (CTCs); a fraction of these are thought to be viable metastatic precursors capable of initiating a clonal metastatic lesion. CTC could be used as non-invasive marker for monitoring drug sensitivity or resistance and select cancer patients who are candidates for early systemic antimetastatic therapy. Identifying CTCs in neoplastic patients could be also an independent prognostic factor for patients at risk for recurrence or metastasis.
