Copy number analysis of CTCs versus matched archival tumor in two patients. Array CGH analysis of (A) 20 CTCs from patient #17 and a corresponding archival primary tumor from local extension to the bladder obtained 1 year and 3 months prior to CTC analysis; and (B) 18 CTCs from patient #20 and a matched primary tumor obtained 5 years and 1 month prior to CTC analysis. Arrows indicate high-level gains on X chromosome region containing AR in CTCs but not observed in archival primary tumors. Chromosome regions in red boxes show genomic aberrations common to both paired samples (Also see Additional file 3: Figure S3).
