Beschreibung

This important book provides up-to-date information on a series of topical issues relating to the approach to minimal residual disease in breast cancer patients. It first explains how the study of minimal residual disease and circulating and disseminated tumor cells (CTCs/DTCs) can assist in the understanding of breast cancer metastasis. A series of chapters then discuss the various technologies available for the detection and characterization of CTCs and DTCs, pinpointing their merits and limitations. Detailed consideration is given to the relevance of CTCs and DTCs, and their detection, to clinical research and practice. The role of other blood-based biomarkers is also addressed, and the closing chapters debate the challenges facing drug and biomarker co-development and the use of CTCs for companion diagnostic development. This book will be of interest and assistance to all who are engaged in the modern management of breast cancer.

Provides up-to-date information on topical issues concerning minimal residual disease in breast cancer patients

Appraises the technologies available for detection and characterization of circulating and disseminated tumor cells (CTCs/DTCs)

Discusses the relevance of CTCs and DTCs in breast cancer clinical research and practice, and the role of other blood-based biomarkers



Klappentext

Most deaths from carcinomas are caused by the hematogenous dissemination of cancer cells to distant organs and the eventual development of metastases. When found in the bone marrow or peripheral blood of carcinoma patients, occult cancer cells are referred to as disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) or circulating tumor cells (CTCs). CTCs and DTCs are considered surrogates of minimal residual disease, i.e., the presence of malignant cells in distant organs that are undetectable by conventional imaging and laboratory tests used for tumor staging after curative surgery of the primary tumor.

In this book, leading investigators in the field provide up-to-date information on a series of important questions, including:

- How can the study of minimal residual disease and CTCs help us to better understand breast cancer metastasis?

- What technologies are available for the detection and characterization of CTCs and DTCs, and what are their relative merits?

- How are DTCs and CTCs relevant to clinical research and practice?

- What is the role of other blood-based biomarkers such as circulating endothelial cells and circulating nucleic acids?

- What are the challenges in drug and biomarker co-development and the use of CTCs for companion diagnostic development?

This book will be of interest and assistance to all who are engaged in the modern management of breast cancer.
