Slowing Down Circulating Tumor Cells for Capture

For some time, researchers have recognized the potential utility of tracking circulating tumor cells (CTCs) for the study of metastasis. However, how to best identify these cells amongst the millions of healthy cells circulating in the blood has posed a problem. Now, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of North Carolina School of Medicine have demonstrated a method for identifying large numbers of the cells in cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. Read more.
