In Vivo Real-Time Detection of Circulating Melanoma Cells

Study Description

In Vivo Real-time Detection of Circulating Melanoma Cells

The objective of this clinical trial is to determine whether a Photoacoustic flow cytometry (PAFC)-based prototype device can detect circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the blood of melanoma patients in vivo, in real time, and do so at detection limits at least one order of magnitude below the detection limits of currently existing ex vivo methods.
