Isolation of Rare Circulating Tumor Cells in Cancer Patients by Microchip TechnologyToner, et al. 2007

Background circulating tumor cells l.jpg

Background: Circulating Tumor Cells

  • CTCs: tumor cells shed into the blood stream

  • Motivation for detection

    • Study biology of metastasis

    • Diagnose, detect, monitor cancer in patients without invasive biopsy

The bone marrow niche: habitat to hematopoietic and mesenchymal stem cells, and unwitting host to molecular parasites

Y Shiozawa, A M Havens, K J Pienta and R S Taichman


Motivation for the ctc chip l.jpg

Motivation for the “CTC-Chip”

  • Shortcomings prior to “CTC-Chip”

    • Accuracy: 20-60%

    • Purity: 0.1%

    • Non-viable cells

How to use the ctc chip l.jpg

How to use the “CTC Chip"

  • Flow sample through CTC Chip

  • EpCAM coated microposts

  • Verify with markers

Pressure Control

Blood on Rocker

CTC Chip

Toner 2007

EpCAM

Non-CTCs

CTCs

Micropost

Cytokeratin

CD45


Instrument design in silico l.jpg

Instrument Design: in silico

  • Maximize CTCs detected

    • Flow Velocity

    • Shear Force

  • Vary micropost characteristics

  • Theoretical capture efficiency of 65%

Toner 2007


Laboratory results l.jpg

Laboratory Results

  • 1 target cell/10^9 blood cells

  • Purity of capture ~60% (competitors = 0.1%)

  •  Efficiency of capture ~65% (competitors = 35%)

  • Captured cells were viable and could be further manipulated

Capture purity per type of cancer

Toner 2007


Clinical results l.jpg

Clinical Results

  • Identified CTCs in 99% cancer pts (competitors =  20-60%)

  • no false positives

  • Change in number of CTCs correlated with clinical path

  • No pre-processing required

Change in CTCs captured per mL (red) with lung cancer patient mirrors change in tumor size (blue)

Concerns and next steps l.jpg

Concerns and next steps

  • How cells used afterwards?

  • How to mass produce chips?

  • Financially viable?

  • How reliable is EpCAM as a caner cell marker?

  • FDA approval

Recap applications l.jpg

Recap/Applications

  • New diagnostic and prognostic tool for cancer patients

  • Provide alternative to biopsies for areas with low resources

  • Use to isolate and further study CTCs
