Single Tumor Cells Reveal Clues to Biology of Multiple Myeloma
Individual tumor cells circulating in the blood of patients with multiple myeloma may be a new source of information about the genetic changes driving the disease, according to the results of a pilot study. In the study, researchers isolated individual tumor cells from the blood of patients with multiple myeloma. They then analyzed these cells and found that they provided as much, if not more, information about the genetic changes associated with multiple myeloma as cells collected from the bone marrow.
