Early detection of disseminated tumor cells in the peripheral blood of patients with early stage gastric cancer could help to improve the outcome after tumor resection. The aim of this study is to evaluate the prognostic significance of tumor-related mRNA for the detection of circulating tumor cells in gastric cancer patients by a reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method. We simultaneously analyzed human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT), cytokeratin-19 (CK-19… CONTINUE READING
