The newest methods, in the preliminary reports, seem to go beyond these restraints. Therefore they could be routinely used in the clinical practice to observe and predict the response to chemoradiotherapy, surgery, and to orient the therapeutic choice. Nonetheless the most promising application of the ctDNA detection regards the screening programmes.
