PURPOSE To establish a quantitative system for evaluating the role of circulating tumor cells (CTC) in peripheral blood samples in patients who undergo surgery for treatment of esophageal cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN One hundred fifty-five peripheral blood samples from 53 esophageal cancer patients were collected before surgery (B-1), immediately after surgery (B0), and on the 3rd day postoperatively (B+3). Eighty-nine samples from 22 benign patients who underwent thoracotomy and 30 healthy… CONTINUE READING
