A rapid and convenient method for detecting a broad spectrum of malignant cells from malignant pleuroperitoneal effusion of patients using a multifunctional NIR heptamethine dye.

Abstract

Detection of malignant cells from malignant effusion is crucial to establish or adjust therapies of patients with cancer. The conventional qualitative detection in malignant pleuroperitoneal effusion is cytological analysis, which is time-consuming and complicated. Therefore, a faster and more convenient detection strategy is urgently needed. In this study… (More)
