A simpler, high-accuracy method to detect rare circulating tumor cells in blood samples

Metastasis—the development of tumor growth at a secondary site—is responsible for the majority of cancer-related deaths. It occurs when the primary tumor site sheds cancerous cells which are then circulated through the body via blood vessels or lymph nodes. These become seeds for eventual tumor growth at a secondary location in the body. Detection of these very rare cells, known […]
