Molecular oncological markers
What is a liquid biopsy?
Markers for the detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs).
|Epithelial cell adhesion. Molecular marker used for the detection of CTC.|
|Epithelial cadherin (E-CAD) marker gene used for the detection of CTC|
|Cytokeratin 7. Marker for CTC detection.|
|CK-20 (KRT20)||Cytokeratin 20. Marker for CTC detection|
Markers for monitoring cell growth.
|Cell growth factor. Prognostic marker used for breast cancer.|
|EGF receiver. Growth marker present in breast, lung, colorectal cancer among others.|
|VEGF (VEGFA)||Growth factor that stimulates angiogenesis.|
|Progesterone receptor. Hormonal marker|
|Estrogen receptor Hormonal marker|
|Molecular marker in tissue with cells derived from prostate cancer.|
|COX2 (PTGS2)||Cyclooxygenase-2 synthase of prostaglandin, promotes tumor progression, resistance to chemotherapeutic agents.|
Targeted therapy markers
|Cell growth regulator. Associated with ovarian cancer.|
|EGF receiver. Good diagnostic marker for breast, ovarian, lung, prostate, stomach and bowel cancer.|
|Suppression of the immune system. The high tumor expression of PDL1 is associated with greater tumor aggressiveness.|
