  • TITLE: Liquid Biopsy in Liquid Tumors

    KEYWORDS: Liquid Biopsy, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Hodgkin Lymphoma, Circulating Tumor Cell (CTC), Circulating Cell Free DNA (ccfDNA)

    ABSTRACT: The availability of a minimally invasive patient simple, capable of providing tumor information, represents a valuable clinical tool. The liquid biopsy has the potential to achieve this need. Circulating cell free DNA (ccfDNA), other circulating nucleic acids such as microRNA and circulating tumor cells (CTCs), can be obtained from a peripheral blood sample. Liquid biopsy has been particularly studied in solid tumors, specially of the epitelial origin, such as a pancreatic carcinoma and advanced breast cancer. It has been considerably less applied to the study of non-solid tumors. It represents an important source for diagnosis, prognosis and predictive information. Also it is suitable to evaluate response to therapy and drugs pharmacokinetics. It provides a unique opportunity to evaluate the disease evolution in serial blood samples collection, otherwise difficult to obtain. Liquid biopsy can be rehearsed using different circulating biological fluids such as whole blood, serum, plasma and lymph, as well as, non-circulating fluids such as urine, feces, saliva, bile and accumulated pathological fluids such as ascites. This review summarizes the current status of circulating material analysis in non-solid tunors. It is specially focused on Hodgkin Lymphoma and among Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, it refers particularly to Diffuse Large B cell Lymphoma, the most common aggressive Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma derived from germinal center B-cells in adults. It further discusses the benefit of liquid biopsy in oncohemtaological diseases and potential clinical applications.
