The presence of circulating total DNA and methylated genes is associated with circulating tumour cells in blood from breast cancer patients

Abstract

Circulating tumour cells (CTC) and tumour-related methylated DNA in blood have been separately assessed for their utility as a marker for subclinical metastasis in breast cancer. However, no studies have looked into the relation between the both molecular markers in this type of cancer. In this study, we investigated the correlations between total… (More)
