The identification of circulating tumor cells in the peripheral blood of patients with malignant melanoma by detection of melanoma associated protein transcripts using the reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) technique has been introduced as a noninvasive and sensitive technique for early detection of tumor progression and metastatic… CONTINUE READING
