Liquid Biopsy: A Tool for the Diagnostic and Prognostic Evaluation of Cancers.

Liquid biopsy is defined as the process of obtaining material for pathologic examination and analysis from body fluids. Liquid biopsy has been intensively researched for its clinical application in patients with solid malignancies, including melanoma and colon, breast, and lung cancers. This will become a standard and routine tool for the diagnostic and prognostic evaluation of all cancer types. This article provides an overview of liquid biopsy, its uses in cancer management, and its implications for nursi...

Concordance between TP53 alterations in blood and tissue: impact of time interval, biopsy site, cancer type and circulating tumor DNA burden.

We examined the impact of spatial, temporal, histologic and quantitative factors on concordance between TP53 alterations in tissue DNA versus in circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA). Four hundred and thirty-three patients underwent next-generation sequencing (NGS) in which both tissue and blood samples were evaluated. TP53 was detected in 258 of 433 patients (59.6%); 215 had tissue TP53 alterations (49.7%); 159, ctDNA (36.7%); and 116, both tissue and ctDNA (27.8%). Overall concordance rate between ctDNA and tissu...

Clinical feasibility of NGS liquid biopsy analysis in NSCLC patients.

Analysis of circulating tumor nucleic acids in plasma of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) patients is the most widespread and documented form of "liquid biopsy" and provides real-time information on the molecular profile of the tumor without an invasive tissue biopsy.

Ultra-deep massively parallel sequencing with unique molecular identifier tagging achieves comparable performance to droplet digital PCR for detection and quantification of circulating tumor DNA from lung cancer patients.

The identification and quantification of actionable mutations are of critical importance for effective genotype-directed therapies, prognosis and drug response monitoring in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although tumor tissue biopsy remains the gold standard for diagnosis of NSCLC, the analysis of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in plasma, known as liquid biopsy, has recently emerged as an alternative and noninvasive approach for exploring tumor genetic constitution. In this study, we deve...

Endometrial liquid biopsy provides a miRNA roadmap of the secretory phase of the human endometrium.

Endometrial liquid biopsy (ELB) is a minimally invasive alternative for research and diagnosis in endometrial biology.


The term 'liquid biopsy', introduced in 2013 in reference to the analysis of circulating tumour cells (CTCs) in cancer patients, was extended to cell-free nucleic acids (cfNAs) circulating in blood and other body fluids. CTCs and cfNAs are now considered diagnostic and prognostic markers, used as surrogate materials for the molecular characterisation of solid tumours, in particular for research on tumour-specific or actionable somatic mutations. Molecular characterisation of cfNAs and CTCs (especially at th...

Tumor-educated platelet as liquid biopsy in lung cancer patients.

Lung cancer is the most frequent cancer for males and third most frequent cancer for females. Targeted therapy drugs based on molecular alterations, such as angiogenesis inhibitors, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors, and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) inhibitors are important part of treatment of NSCLC. However, the quality of the available tumor biopsy and/or cytology material is sometimes not adequate to perform the necessary molecular testing, which has prompted the search for alternat...

Liquid Biopsy Quality Control and the Importance of Plasma Quality, Sample Preparation, and Library Input for Next Generation Sequencing Analysis.

Liquid biopsy is emerging as a non-invasive companion to traditional solid tumor biopsies. As next-generation sequencing (NGS) of circulating cell-free nucleic acids (cfNA = cfDNA and cfRNA) becomes common, it is important to understand the impact of sample preparation on quality, specificity, and sensitivity of liquid biopsy tests. Plasma samples are often limited and may have undesirable characteristics such as lipemia or hemolysis that contribute unwanted genomic DNA (gDNA) to the sample. Low cfDNA conce...

Liquid biopsy for rectal cancer: A systematic review.

The management of locally advanced rectal cancer (RC) is an evolving clinical field where the multidisciplinary approach can reach its best, and liquid biopsy for obtaining tumor-derived component such as circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) might provide complementary informations.

Label-free liquid biopsy based on blood circulating DNA detection using SERS-based nanotechnology for nasopharyngeal cancer screening.

Development of a sensitive, rapid and easy-to-use liquid biopsy method is of imperative clinical value for point-of-care caner diagnostics. Here, a label-free and modification-free nanotechnology based on surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) was employed for DNA analysis. Using the SERS signals of phosphate backbone as internal standard, quantitative detection for nucleobases was achieved even at single base level. The method combined with principal component analysis and linear discriminant analysis ...

Concordances and predictors of biopsies in renal tumors.

Evaluate the concordance between the renal lesions biopsy's histology and the final histology of the surgical specimen according to histological subtype, and search for predictive factors of non-concordance.

Diagnostic Accuracy of Prostate Biopsy for Detecting Cribriform Gleason Pattern 4 Carcinoma and Intraductal Carcinoma in Paired Radical Prostatectomy Specimens: Implications for Active Surveillance.

Prostatic adenocarcinomas with cribriform morphology and/or intraductal carcinoma (CC/IDC) have higher recurrence and mortality rates after radiation and surgery. While the prognostic impact of these features is well-studied, concordance between CC/IDC on biopsy and prostatectomy has only recently gained attention. Our primary objective was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of biopsy for detecting CC/IDC in paired biopsy and prostatectomy specimens in a large contemporary cohort.

Liquid biopsy for diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma: an update.

Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), otherwise known as diffuse midline glioma with H3K27M mutation, is a devastating brainstem glioma without a cure. Efforts are currently underway to better optimize molecular diagnoses through biological sampling, which today remains largely limited to surgical biopsy sampling. Surgical intervention is not without its risks, and therefore a preference remains for a less invasive modality that can provide biological information about the tumor. There is emerging eviden...
