Alternatively, low expression of miR-200c in the primary tissue might reflect changes taking place in the primary tumor associated with EMT that facilitate exit from the primary tumor, a process that is later reversed in the metastatic deposit.
In conclusion, this first direct-comparison study of miRNAs expression in CTCs, corresponding plasma, and paired primary tissues demonstrates that: (a) metastasis-related miRNAs are overexpressed in CTCs and corresponding plasma, (b) miR-21 expression levels are highly correlated in CTCs and plasma, and (c) miR-21, miR-146a, and miR-210 are valuable plasma biomarkers for discriminating patients from healthy individuals.

The cutoff (for 95% specificity) derived from the data on metastatic tissue was slightly higher than that for primary tissue data, but the distributions of serum HER2 in the negative (primary tissue vs metastatic tissue) and positive tissue HER2 group showed no significant difference by t-test (P = 0.
