Abstract

Tumor recurrence after surgical resection of NSCLC obstructs long-term disease-free survival in approximately 50% of cases. Our data suggest that combining circulating tumor cell enumeration (as single cells or clusters) in tumordraining pulmonary vein and peripheral blood (assessed by CellSearch) at the time of NSCLC surgery better identifies those patients at higher risk for lung cancer recurrence than does peripheral circulating tumor cell number alone.
