Abstract The detection of free, i.e. not cell-bound, circulating nucleic acids was described only recently. The second international symposium dealing with this research subject presented the progress made in this field. The topics included in the meeting report are: microsatellite alterations in circulating fetal DNA and DNA isolated from tumor patients; detection and quantification of viral DNA associated with malignant diseases; detection and quantification of mRNA associated with benign and malignant diseases; and application of these methods in areas like tumor detection, detection of women pregnant with a fetus carrying a genetic disorder, transplantation medicine, the care for trauma patients and the detection of circulating foreign DNA (like Plasmodium in people at risk for malaria).
