Dr Nicholas Navin - MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA

ecancer reporter Peter Goodwin talks to Dr Navin at the 2013 IMPAKT conference in Brussels about the new technology of single cell sequencing.

Blood tests allow the sampling of CTCs and thus the genome of any primary and metastatic tumours; this then allows the progress of a tumour to be monitored and it's repsonse to certain therapies.

There is also potential for very early detection of tumours, and in the future a yearly test for early stage tumours which could lead to a huge reduction in deaths from cancer.
