Title: The development and evaluation of molecular biological techniques to detect solid tumour cells in peripheral blood / Kenneth Brian Pittman
Author: Pittman, Kenneth Brian
Issue Date: 1995
School/Discipline: Dept. of Surgery
Abstract: Current understanding of metastatic processes and the clinical significance of these processes is discussed. The study of circulating solid tumour cells in peripheral blood is reviewed from an historical perspective. Newer molecular and cell biological techniques which may facilitate more reliable tumour evaluation are reviewed with special reference given to polymerase chair reaction (PCR)
