Decorin Protein Core Inhibits in Vivo Cancer Growth and Metabolism by Hindering Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Function and Triggering Apoptosis via Caspase-3 Activation*
Decorin is not only a regulator of matrix assembly but also a key signaling molecule that modulates the activity of tyrosine kinase receptors such as the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR).Expand

Endorepellin in vivo: targeting the tumor vasculature and retarding cancer growth and metabolism.
BACKGROUND The antiangiogenic approach to controlling cancer requires a better understanding of angiogenesis and the discovery of new compounds that modulate this key biological process. Here weExpand

Simplified quantification of small animal [18F]FDG PET studies using a standard arterial input function
PurposeArterial input function (AIF) measurement for quantification of small animal PET studies is technically challenging and limited by the small blood volume of small laboratory animals. TheExpand

Performance of a brain PET camera based on anger-logic gadolinium oxyorthosilicate detectors.
UNLABELLED A high-sensitivity, high-resolution brain PET scanner ("G-PET") has been developed. This scanner is similar in geometry to a previous brain scanner developed at the University ofExpand

PET Imaging of VPAC1 Expression in Experimental and Spontaneous Prostate Cancer
Among U.S. men, prostate cancer (PC) accounts for 29% of all newly diagnosed cancers. A reliable scintigraphic agent to image PC and its metastatic or recurrent lesions and to determine theExpand

PET Imaging of CCND1 mRNA in Human MCF7 Estrogen Receptor–Positive Breast Cancer Xenografts with Oncogene-Specific [64Cu]Chelator-Peptide Nucleic Acid-IGF1 Analog Radiohybridization Probes
Treatment of breast cancer is hampered by a large unmet need for rapid, sensitive, specific staging and stratification of palpable and nonpalpable abnormalities. Mammography and physical examinationExpand

External Imaging of CCND1, MYC, and KRAS Oncogene mRNAs with Tumor‐Targeted Radionuclide‐PNA‐Peptide Chimeras
Abstract: In 2005, breast cancer will kill approximately 40,410 women in the U.S., and pancreatic cancer will kill approximately 31,800 men and women in the U.S. Clinical examination and mammography,Expand

Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide (PACAP) receptor specific peptide analogues for PET imaging of breast cancer: In vitro/in vivo evaluation
Vasoactive intestinal peptide and pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide have high affinity for VPAC1, VPAC2 and PAC1 receptors overexpressed on human cancer cells. Four potent analogues ofExpand

Receptor-mediated internalization of chelator-PNA-peptide hybridization probes for radioimaging or magnetic resonance imaging of oncogene mRNAs in tumours.
Early external detection of cancer gene activity might enable early treatment of cancer and might reduce cancer mortality. We hypothesized that oncogene mRNA overexpressed at thousands of copies perExpand

First results of a dedicated breast PET imager, BPET, using NaI(Tl) curve plate detectors
We present the first imaging results from phantom measurements of a dedicated, breast-only positron emission imager, BPET, using NaI(Tl) Curve Plate detectors. The scanner uses 19 mm thick NaI(Tl)Expand
