Disseminated tumour cells in bone marrow of patients with uveal melanoma
Acta Ophthalmologica, 06/12/2012
Eide N et al. – The presence of melanoma cells in BM of patients with uveal melanoma is documented in this study with IMS and ICC. Immunomagnetically selected is more sensitive than ICC in detecting tumour cells in BM. However, statistically, authors did not find any prognostic impact of the presence of melanoma cells in BM.
