Molecular analysis of circulating tumour cells identifies distinct profiles in chemosensitive and chemorefractory patients with small cell lung cancer

In a search for profiles that distinguish chemosensitive versus chemorefractory SCLC disease, we examined copy number aberrations (CNA) in circulating tumour cells (CTCs) from pre-treatment SCLC blood samples. A CNA classifier was generated from 88 CTCs isolated from 13 patients (training set) then verified in 18 additional patients (112 CTC samples) (testing set) and in six SCLC patient-derived CTC explants explant tumours. These data highlight the potential utility of CTCs for molecular profiling and stratification of SCLC patients in future clinical trials.
