Detecting Cancer Biomarkers from Proteins in Liquid Biopsy

Early cancer detection is a key determinant of patient outcomes. Liquid biopsy is a sensitive diagnostic technology that uses peripheral blood to detect biomarkers for solid and liquid tumors. Current technologies detect circulating tumor cells and tumor DNA, but lack the sensitivity to identify cancer biomarkers from proteins present in the circulation. In this webinar, Klaus Pantel and Christoffer Gebhardt will discuss recent advances in liquid biopsy technology that allow researchers to detect protein biomarkers for diverse cancer types, including metastatic melanoma.
