‘Liquid biopsy’ able to detect early resistance to targeted therapy in advanced lung cancer patients

• Monitoring of EML4-ALK gene rearrangements in blood platelets is sufficiently sensitive and specific to be incorporated into clinical practice.
• Non-invasive blood samples can be taken repeatedly, overcoming the challenges associated with obtaining sufficient tumor tissue for genetic analyses.
• The ability to detect disease progression in ‘real time’ allows oncologists to predict treatment outcomes, switch therapies when necessary and increase life expectancy.
