SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Biocept, Inc., a privately-held, CLIA certified laboratory testing company focused on detection and analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in cancer patients, reported the publication in the journal Cancer Medicine of a paper entitled “Discordance in HER2 gene amplification in circulating and disseminated tumor cells in patients with operable breast cancer” on research performed with collaborators from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. One of the key findings of the research was the demonstration that greater than 20% of studied patients classified as HER2- by analysis of their tumors by standard methods were shown to have HER2+ CTCs in blood and/or disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) in bone marrow as determined by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).
