Prostate cancer: A laboratory study to isolate and manipulate circulating tumor cells
in prostate cancer.
Many patients with prostate cancer have a small number of cancer cells circulating
in their blood, usually less than 5 in one and one-half (1.5) teaspoons of blood.
Will a new lab method be able to separate and collect cancer cells from the blood
of prostate cancer patients to be studied in the lab?
