However, there is still a lack of efficient approach to diagnosis and treatment in time, especially in the field of targeted therapy. Increasing evidences demonstrated that DNA methylation plays an essential role in tumorigenesis and progression of GC. Thus the present study aims to identify DNA methylation-based prognostic biomarkers in GC. Two methylation array d...

Thus, other approaches that are easily accessible and less invasive than surgery or biopsy to monitor responses to treatment and predict relapses are urgently needed. In the last few years, the term “liquid biopsies” has been introduced to represent multifunctional circulating biomarkers in the peripheral blood and other physiological fluids of patients with cance...
