INTRODUCTION The presence of disseminated tumor cells (DTC) in the bone marrow (BM) of breast cancer patients is associated with poor prognosis. Several studies demonstrated that tumor cell dissemination may occur in gynecologic cancer and affect clinical outcome. The aim of our study was to evaluate the incidence of DTC and to assess their prognostic significance in patients with gynecologic malignancies. METHODS Bone marrow aspirates from 377 patients with primary ovarian (112), endometrial… CONTINUE READING
