C-Ki-ras mutations in peripheral blood of pancreatic cancer patients: a marker for early tumor metastasis.

Abstract

PURPOSE To determine the incidence of circulating minimal malignant clone (CMMC) (harboring c-Ki-ras-2 mutation) in peripheral blood (PB) samples of untreated pancreatic cancer using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of c-Ki-ras-2 oncogene. METHODS AND MATERIALS Experiments were carried out in fresh tumor, peritoneal washings (PW), and PB samples… (More)
