Background: Assays for circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) have shown utility for cancer detection and management. It is important to demonstrate cancer specificity of targeted ctDNA biomarkers. Detection of methylated BCAT1 and IKZF1 ctDNA has shown high sensitivity for colorectal cancer (CRC). The aim of this study was to investigate whether hypermethylation of these two biomarkers is also present in prostate or breast adenocarcinoma (PCa or BCa) tissues, and if they are detectable as ctDNA from such cancer patients.
