Monitoring, characterization, and analysis of cancer cells and circulating tumor cells (CTCs).
CTCs are cells which migrate from a primary tumor to the lymphatic and blood systems and ultimately metastasize in other parts of the body, prompting the vast majority of cancer-related deaths.
The knowledge on CTCs will enable targeted clinical management of the disease.
