Circulating tumour cells therapeutic apheresis (CTCtrap): a novel biotechnology enabling personalised therapy for all cancer patients

The project is part of a pan-European programme to develop a way of screening for cancer cells that have evaded treatment. The institute will work alongside 10 other bodies on methods of detecting circulating tumour cells (CTCs) to assess whether treatment has successfully eradicated cancers. The "CTC trap" will filter patients' blood and should allow doctors to predict the risk of cancers spreading to new sites in the body, hopefully allowing them to adjust treatment accordingly.
