Healthy Living: CELLSEARCH for Cancer

People diagnosed with early-stage cancer have a greater chance of beating it.

But when that cancer spreads, the odds go down. 

In Healthy Living, hear the story of a team of researchers working to stop these dangerous cancer cells from spreading.

The CELLSEARCH system is FDA approved for clinical purposes and has been around for ten years, but only a handful of institutions have one.

According to Khaled, doctors can test the number of circulating tumor cells to determine how far a person’s cancer has advanced with the hope to determine if a particular therapy is working.
