Liquid Biopsy at the Frontier of Early Detection, Prognosis and Cancer Treatments
This special issue published by Molecular Cancer focuses on the clinical aspects of liquid biopsies, in particular validation of novel biomarkers that may serve as signature for non-invasive early detection of cancerous cells, predict patients' risks of disease progression and response to specific therapies.
