Beck, J. et al. Next Generation Sequencing of Serum Circulating Nucleic Acids from Invasive Ductal Breast Cancer Patients Reveals Differences to Healthy and Non-malignant Controls. Mol. Cancer Res. 2010; 8: 385-92.

Circulating nucleic acids (CNA) isolated from serum or plasma are increasingly recognized as biomarkers for cancers. We report specific DNA-transposable element sequences that could discriminate all stages of invasive ductal breast carcinoma with significant specificity and sensitivity.
