FDG PET studies during treatment: Prediction of therapy outcome in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma
Positron emission tomography (PET) provides metabolic information of tissues in vivo. The purpose of this study was to assess the value of PET with 2‐[18 F] fluoro‐2‐deoxy‐D‐glucose (FDG) inExpand

Weight loss in patients with head and neck cancer during and after conventional and accelerated radiotherapy
Abstract Background. Weight loss is common among patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) and is mainly due to tumor and treatment related factors. The aim of the presentExpand

Characterization of a Novel Breast Carcinoma Xenograft and Cell Line Derived from a BRCA1 Germ-Line Mutation Carrier
A human tumor xenograft (L56Br-X1) was established from a breast cancer axillary lymph node metastasis of a 53-year-old woman with a BRCA1 germ-line nonsense mutation (1806C>T; Q563X), and a cellExpand
