Recently, miRNA-expression profiling in primary tumors has yielded promising results. However, establishing miRNA expression in the circulation probably has advantages over determination in primary tumor tissue, further augmenting the potential applications of miRNA determination in oncology. Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) have rapidly developed as important prognostic and therapy-monitoring biomarkers in metastatic breast, colorectal and prostate cancer when enumerated, and their isolation… CONTINUE READING
