Therapeutic and Prognostic Impact of Circulating Tumor Cells in Peripheral Blood in Patients With Non Small-cell Lung Cancer

2014-08-27 03:16:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the association between the number of circulating tumor cells and response to treatment in non small-cell lung cancer patients

Description

In spite of technological advantages in diagnosis and treatment, lung cancer remains one of the most deadly malignant neoplasias. Moreover, there are no markers for monitoring response to treatment. The objective of the study is to associate the number of circulating tumor cells (CTC) before and after treatment and correlate it with tumor response rate, progression-free survival and overall survival.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

Exophytic tumor of the anogenital region associated with HPV infections. It becomes a large cauliflower-like, hyperkeratotic, verrucous mass that is locally destructive with little atypical cells. Histologically, tumor cells are broad rete peg structures that tend to invade deeper than CONDYLOMATA ACUMINATA.

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)

Hypoxic conditions in tumor cells due to the tumor outgrowing its blood supply. It is associated with increased METASTASIS and resistance to RADIOTHERAPY and DRUG THERAPY.

A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)
