A study looking at cancer cells in blood samples from women with breast cancer

 Hereditary breast cancer / Posted 1 year ago

Looking at circulating tumour cells in the blood will help researchers learn more about why treatment works better in some women than others and about how cancer spreads.

The aims of this study are to find out
•If cancer cells in the blood can be easily detected and counted
•More about breast cancer, to help improve treatment in the future
•More about how breast cancer spreads

You will not have any direct benefit from taking part in this study, and it is unlikely to change your treatment plan in any way. But the results of the study will be used to help women in the future.

  • Inclusion Criteria : You may be able to enter this study if you are a woman aged between 18 and 99, both with or without breast cancer.

  • Study start date : 12/08/2011
  • Study end date : 08/02/2021
  • Wales-Based Study Contact : Not recruiting in Wales
