The importance of CTC analysis in liquid biopsy - insights from Prof Dr Klaus Pantel
Liquid biopsy focusing on the analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTC) and circulating cell-free tumor DNA (ctDNA) in the blood of patients with cancer has received enormous attention because of its clinical implications for personalized medicine. Here, Prof Klaus Pantel addresses the importance of CTC analysis and the critical role it plays in the clinical applications of liquid biopsy.
About the presenter:
Prof Klaus Pantel is Chairman of the Institute of Tumour Biology at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf. He graduated from Cologne University in 1986 and completed his thesis on mathematical modeling of hematopoiesis in 1987. After his postdoctoral period in the USA on hematopoietic stem cell regulation (Wayne State University, Detroit), he performed research at the Institute of Immunology, the University of Munich for 10 years.
Prof Pantel's pioneering work in the field of cancer micrometastasis, circulating tumor cells, and circulating nucleic acids is reflected by over 400 publications. He has been awarded the AACR Outstanding Investigator Award 2010, the German Cancer Award 2010, and two ERC Advanced Investigator Grants 2011 and 2019. Moreover, Prof Pantel coordinates the European IMI consortium CANCER-ID on blood-based “Liquid Biopsies” in lung and breast cancer, which comprises 40 partner institutions from academia, non-profit organizations, and industry. He has established the European Liquid Biopsy Society (ELBS) as successor consortium.
