Title: CTCs characterization for metastatic breast cancer patients follow-up

  • CTCs are responsible for distal metastasis and of great interest for biomarkers discovery to predict and monitor tumor progression and therapy failure. In this study we performed a monitoring of metastatic breast cancer patients before and after treatment througout CTC molecular characterization to identify biomarkers with interest for clinical oncology translation
