Phenotypic and genetic characterization of circulating tumor cells by combining immunomagnetic selection and FICTION techniques.

Abstract

The presence of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in breast cancer patients has been proven to have clinical relevance. Cytogenetic characterization of these cells could have crucial relevance for targeted cancer therapies. We developed a method that combines an immunomagnetic selection of CTCs from peripheral blood with the fluorescence immunophenotyping and… (More)
