  • Publication number: 20190107542
    Abstract: Provided are methods for detecting or isolating circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in a subject. The methods may include detecting the expression of at least one epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) biomarker. Further provided are kits for detecting or isolating CTCs. The kits may include antibodies to at least one EMT biomarker. Further provided are methods of predicting the responsiveness of a subject to a cancer drug, methods of targeting delivery of a cancer drug in a subject, methods of providing a cancer prognosis to a subject, and methods for following the progress of cancer in a subject.

  • Publication number: 20180231560
    Abstract: This disclosure provides compositions and methods for the isolation of cells that express c-MET, and in particular circulating tumor cells that express c-MET. The methods can include contacting a biological sample including a c-MET circulating tumor cell with an unbound complex including a capture binding species linked to a solid phase for a time sufficient to allow the unbound complex to bind an extracellular binding domain of the c-MET protein to form a bound complex, and subsequently isolating the bound complex. Compositions, systems, and kits adapted for use with these methods are also provided.
