About Circulating Tumor Cells

Circulating tumor cells are cancer cells that have detached from the tumor and are found at extremely low levels in the bloodstream.  The value of capturing and counting CTCs is evolving as more research data is gathered about the utility of these markers in monitoring disease progression and potentially guiding personalized cancer therapy.

About CELLSEARCH® CTC Test

CELLSEARCH® is the first and only regulatory-cleared in vitro diagnostic test to capture and count CTCs to determine the prognosis of patients with metastatic breast, colorectal or prostate cancer.  The test can be administered at any time during the course of therapy as a routine blood test.  It is used in combination with other tests and a clinician's assessment, to provide a more complete picture of a patient's prognosis.
