The biggest technical challenge is CTC detection despite the continued development of many new technologies. The key need is for a technology that will detect the real metastasis-initiating CTC which in turn will trigger distant metastases. This may be a combination of complementary technologies or even several technologies optimized for specific tumor types. CTC enrichment depends on the different properties of CTCs that distinguish them from the surrounding normal hematopoietic cells; physical properties; and biological properties. Most of the current technologies are still based on epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) expression. New emerging technologies may try to capture EpCAM-negative CTCs. Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) are assuming importance as a biomarker for companion diagnostics and early detection for cancer treatment.

There are many unmet needs in cancer drug development. Studying of tumor clusters, cell circulation, assessing and correlating types of tumors with their functionalities are vital aspects of CTC studies. Hundreds of clinical studies testify the requirement of detection and molecular characterization of CTCs. Risk estimation, therapy monitoring, identification of targets, and understanding metastatic developments are essential research areas. CTCs are known to represent the biology of cancer, and high counts of CTC lead to negative prognosis. Phenotyping and genotyping CTC and further studies will reveal whether CTC can be used for directing general or targeted anti-cancer therapy.
