Liquid biopsy: the most sensitive and least invasive cancer analysis technique

A study conducted at Hospital Clínic analysed the genetic profile of more than 300 patients with solid tumours using a liquid biopsy blood test, resulting in genomic alterations being detected in 90% of cases. This type of test allows results to be obtained within a week, meaning the most suitable treatment can be determined in the shortest possible time.

Liquid biopsy allows the selection of the most appropriate therapy according to the evolution of the disease in each patient.
