Correlating CTC profiling with breast cancer brain metastasis will be the topic of this presentation. We evaluated CTC heterogeneity and characteristics in patients possessing breast cancer brain metastasis by combining multiple CTC platforms and technologies. We provide first-time evidence for the selection of CTC subsets and their characterization by in vitro culturing. We identified candidate genes predictive of breast cancer brain metastasis by interrogating  CTC subsets’ metastatic competency in xenotransplantation studies.
