Title:
Correlation of CK-20-positive cells in peripheral venous blood with serum CEA levels in patients with colorectal carcinoma. 
Abstract:
Tumor cell dissemination appears to be an early event in tumor progression, and tumor cells can be detected in peripheral venous blood at the time of the operation. Although cytokeratin 20 (CK-20) is not specifically expressed by colorectal carcinomas, it represents a widely used marker for the detection of colorectal tumor cells. We used the combination of density centrifugation and CK-20 real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction to detect CK-20-positive cells in the peripheral...    »
