Use of free circulating DNA for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of cancer.
Sirera R., Camps C.
This application claims a new method for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of cancer using a non-invasive technique, the analysis of free circulating DNA in body fluids as a biomarker. The claimed procedure is based on the analysis of gene promoter methylation status and DNA integrity and concentration in the body fluid. Interestingly, DNA isolation from complex milieus is not required.
