Pilot Study to Develop Circulating Tumor DNA in Cerebrospinal Fluid as an Early Biomarker of Leptomeningeal Carcinomatosis in Patients with Metastatic Solid Tumor Cancer
Principal Investigator (?)
Ronan, Lara
Study Number
The purpose of this study is to learn whether the DNA from cancer tumor cells can be found in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) that bathes the brain and spinal cord of patients before malignant the cancer cells themselves are able to be found in the CSF.
