Previous studies used to enumerate circulating tumor cells to predict prognosis and therapeutic effect of colorectal cancer. However, increasing studies have shown that only circulating tumor cells enumeration was not enough to reflect the heterogeneous condition of tumor. In this study, we classified different metastatic-potential circulating tumor cells from colorectal cancer patients and measured FAM172A expression in circulating tumor cells to improve accuracy of clinical diagnosis and… CONTINUE READING
