OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine whether our constructed high-sensitivity colorimetric membrane-array method could detect circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the peripheral blood of stage II colorectal cancer (CRC) patients and so identify a subgroup of patients who are at high risk for relapse. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Adjuvant chemotherapy is not routinely recommended in patients diagnosed with UICC stage II CRC. However, up to 30% of patients with stage II disease relapse… CONTINUE READING
