Purpose Emerging evidence indicates that circulating microRNAs (miRs) might act as noninvasive biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and prognosis. We examined the expression pattern and clinical significance of plasma miR-9 in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Methods Venous blood samples (6 mL) were collected from 131 patients with ESCC and 131 healthy controls, and the plasma miR-9 concentration was detected by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. The association of plasma miR-9 expression with clinicopathologic factors and survival of patients with ESCC was evaluated...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to directly compare mutation profiles in multiple single circulating tumor cells (CTC) and cell-free DNA (cfDNA) isolated from the same blood samples taken from patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). We aimed to determine whether cfDNA would reflect the heterogeneity observed in 40 single CTCs. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: CTCs were enumerated by CELLSEARCH. CTC count was compared with the quantity of matched cfDNA and serum CA15-3 and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) in 112 patients with MBC...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the clinical manifestations and hematologic parameters and observe the cytomorphological features of metastatic tumors in the bone marrow originating from different primary sites. METHODS: The clinical data of 77 patients with bone marrow metasta tumors admitted between 2009 and 2014 between 2009 and 2014 in General Hospital of PLA were studied retrospectively to analyze the indications of laboratory examinations (hematological laboratory tests, tumor markers, peripheral blood films, and bone marrow aspirates)...
