Tyrosinase has been suggested as a prodrug-converting enzyme for the treatment of melanoma. We hypothesized that tyrosinase expression in transfected nonmelanotic cells can be used in a gene therapy paradigm of prodrug activation. To verify our hypothesis, we used the following tyro-sinase variants: (a) a full-length human tyrosinase clone (T); (b) a mutant(More)
INTRODUCTION Use of fluorescence imaging in oncology is evolving rapidly, and nontargeted fluorochromes are currently being investigated for clinical application. Here, we investigated whether the degree of tumour angiogenesis can be assessed in vivo by planar and tomographic methods using the perfusion-type cyanine dye SIDAG (1,1'-bis-(More)
