Abstract

Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) are considered a liquid biopsy of solid tumors, reflecting the disease complexity at any stage of cancer progression. CTCs, in fact, represent a surrogate material of the tumor which can be obtained by a minimally invasive blood draw and used for disease monitoring and orienting therapeutic decisions, but their detection and characterization are technically challenging.
