|Size distribution of cell-free DNA in oncology
|Tumor-specific, circulating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in liquid biopsy test is a novel promising biomarker in the advancement of cancer management, including early diagnosis, screening, prognosis, identification of actionable targets, and serial tumor monitoring. The specific size pattern of DNA fragments derived from cancer cells is observed to differ from that of cfDNA fragments shed by non-cancer cells. Research into the physiological and biological properties of cfDNA reveals the molecular signature carried by each cfDNA fragments, which can reflect their tissue origins, as well as the mutational profiles with significant genetic alterations. Understanding the fragmentation and size distribution of cfDNA might be a valuable hotspot in liquid biopsy research, with the potential to drive innovation in oncology.
