Association of baseline circulating tumor cell counts with visceral disease spread. (A) Types of the first progression of disease (PD) occurring after baseline in 149 patients with disease initially confined to nonvisceral organs, stratified by circulating tumor cell (CTC) count. Thirty-seven (19.9%) of the total of one hundred eighty-six patients without baseline visceral metastases had not developed PD before the last follow-up visit. (B) and (C) Time to visceral disease (B) and overall survival (C) in the 186 patients without visceral metastases, stratified by CTC count.
