Circulating tumor cells for prostate cancer diagnosis
Analyzing Circulating tumor cells for cancer diagnoses includes enumeration, genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic profiling. Also ex-vivo cultures and xenografts can be used to guide the choice of treatment.
The biggest challenge is the very low counts of CTCs in periferal blood and their phenotypic heterogeneity[@ramirez-garrastacho2021Extracellular vesicles as a source of prostate cancer biomarkers in liquid biopsies: a decade of research]
