PURPOSE To estimate the rate constant for pyruvate to lactate conversion in tumours in response to a hypoxic challenge, using hyperpolarised (13)C1-pyruvate and magnetic resonance spectroscopy. METHODS AND MATERIALS Hypoxic inspired gas was used to manipulate rat P22 fibrosarcoma oxygen tension (pO2), confirmed by luminescence decay of oxygen-sensitive(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the metabolic profile of human prostate cancer cells that have different metastatic potential and to determine their response to dichloroacetate (DCA) using NMR technology. Two isogenic human prostate cancer cell lines, differing in their metastatic potential [LNCaP (poorly metastatic) and LNCaP-LN3 (highly(More)
We study the Morlet wavelet transform on characterizing Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic (MRS) signals acquired at short echo-time. These signals contain contributions from metabolites, water and a baseline which mainly originates from large molecules, known as macromolecules, and lipids. The baseline signal decays faster than the metabolite ones.(More)
