This Biofluid Biopsies Conference Track focuses primarily on blood-based molecular biomarkers, such as circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) as well as circulating tumor cells (CTCs), and protein-based circulating biomarkers.  There is much interest in the potential of ctDNA for developing biological fluid-based biopsies and the presenters in this track bring together the most up-to-date information and current state-of-the-field.  The focus of this track is on biological fluids and leveraging them to develop biopsies.

Agenda Topics

  • Analysis of Somatic Mutations in ctDNA and CTCs
  • Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs): Potential as Prognostic or Predictive Biomarkers
  • Circulating Tumor DNA (ctDNA): Potential for Development of Biofluid-based Biopsies
  • Emerging Technology Platforms for Interrogating Circulating Biomarkers and Developing Biofluid-based Biopsies
    • Biological Fluids such as Blood, Plasma, Serum, Urine, Cerebrospinal Fluid
  • Extracellular Nucleic Acids in the Circulating (ctDNA, Circulating Free DNA, Extracellular RNA)
    • Enveloped within Extracellular Vesicles (such as Exosomes, Microvesicles, EVs)
    • Free in the Circulation
