The Effect of Treatment on Circulating Tumor Cells in Bladder Cancer Patients With Muscle-invasive or Advanced Disease

The measurement of circulating tumor cells is pursued in several cancers including breast and prostate cancer. The number of cells measured in these cancers has been shown to be prognosti...

PET-CT and Circulating Tumor Cells in Colorectal Cancer

The purpose of this study is to identify an early indicator of drug efficacy in patients with advanced colorectal cancer - a prospective evaluation of circulating tumor cells, positron-emi...

Culture of Circulating Tumor Cells Isolated From Cancer Patients With Metastatic Disease

The purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility of using novel decellularized tissue matrices to isolate and culture circulating tumor cells (CTCs) collected from patients with...

Expression of Tumor Markers in Circulating Tumor Cells of Metastatic Hormone-sensitive Prostate Cancer

As prostate cancer progresses, tumor cells dissociate and enter the bloodstream. Considered a "liquid biopsy," these circulating tumor cells (CTC) can show how a patient's cancer evolves a...

Measurement and Characterization of Circulating Endothelial Cells or Circulating Tumor Cells in Adult Patients With Metastatic Cancer

Monitoring of circulating endothelial cells (CEC and mature cells called progenitors called CEP) or circulating tumor cells (CTC) in adult patients with metastatic cancer, possibly treated...

The liquid biopsies: What is their contribution to the management of cancer?

The « liquid biopsies » are samples of liquids such as blood, urine, spinal fluid that can contain tumor material. Clinical assays have been mainly focused on the peripheral blood containing circu...

Role of Macrophages in Brain Tumor Growth and Progression.

The role of macrophages in the growth and the progression of tumors has been extensively studied in recent years. A large body of data demonstrates that macrophage polarization plays an essential role...

Blood-based biomarkers in breast cancer: From proteins to circulating tumor cells to circulating tumor DNA.

Biomarkers are the key to personalized treatment in patients with breast cancer. While tissue biomarkers are most useful in determining prognosis and upfront predicting response to therapy, circulatin...

Circulating Tumor Cells: Strategies for Capture, Analyses, and Propagation.

Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) play a central role in tumor dissemination and metastases, which are ultimately responsible for most cancer deaths. Technologies that allow for identification and enumer...

Presence of Circulating Tumor Cells in High-Risk Early Breast Cancer During Follow-Up and Prognosis.

The prognostic relevance of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) at the time of primary diagnosis has been well established. However, little information is available regarding their prognostic relevance to ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

DNA released from tumor cells that is found circulating in PLASMA; SERUM; or other BODY FLUIDS.

An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.

Form of adoptive transfer where cells with antitumor activity are transferred to the tumor-bearing host in order to mediate tumor regression. The lymphoid cells commonly used are lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells and tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL). This is usually considered a form of passive immunotherapy. (From DeVita, et al., Cancer, 1993, pp.305-7, 314)

Vaccines or candidate vaccines designed to prevent or treat cancer. Vaccines are produced using the patient's own whole tumor cells as the source of antigens, or using tumor-specific antigens, often recombinantly produced.

An unusual and aggressive tumor of germ-cell origin that reproduces the extraembryonic structures of the early embryo. It is the most common malignant germ cell tumor found in children. It is characterized by a labyrinthine glandular pattern of flat epithelial cells and rounded papillary processes with a central capillary (Schiller-Duval body). The tumor is rarely bilateral. Before the use of combination chemotherapy, the tumor was almost invariably fatal. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1189)
