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...

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...

Detection of PD-L1 in circulating tumor cells and white blood cells from patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer.

Expression of PD-L1 in tumor cells and tumor-infiltrating immune cells has been associated with improved efficacy to anti-PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors in patients with advanced-stage non-small-cell lung canc...

EGFR expression in circulating tumor cells from high-grade Metastatic Sarcomas.

Soft tissue Sarcomas (STS) are rare malignances, with high mortality rates. Half of patients develop metastasis. The presence of isolated Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) and Circulating Tumor Microembo...

Circulating tumor cells: potential markers of minimal residual disease in ovarian cancer? a study of the OVCAD consortium.

In 75% of ovarian cancer patients the tumor mass is completely eradicated by established surgical and cytotoxic treatment; however, the majority of the tumors recur within 24 months. Here we investiga...

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

Exfoliate neoplastic cells circulating in the blood and associated with metastasizing tumors.
