New Technique Promises Improved Metastatic Prostate Cancer Detection

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Results reported in Biomicrofluidics promise a new way to detect prostate cancer through a simple device, which forces cell samples through channels less than 10 microns wide. When prostate cancer cells are forced through, the metastatic cells exhibit “blebbing,” and the experiments show that highly metastatic prostate cancer cells are more likely to exhibit blebbing than normal cells or even less-metastatic cells are. The new device could be used in a clinical setting to inexpensively test large numbers of samples.
