Our Institution has a long-standing interest in the analyses of the biological impact of tumor cells present in peripheral blood and bone marrow aspirates.

Web-link to the various projects and the Steering Committee:

We are particularly interested in two groups of patients:

1. Patients with primary bone sarcomas
2. Prostate cancer patients.

In the first group we have used a technique of immunomagnetic isolation.
This collaboration is with the Department of Tumorbiology.

In the latter cytokeratin staining by standard immuncytochemistry is used.
