Tumour-associated changes have been observed in the circulating nucleic acids of cancer patients and have been proposed to be useful for the detection and monitoring of cancers. In this review, different approaches for detecting tumour-associated nucleic acids in the circulation and their potential applications as tumour markers are discussed.
