PURPOSE This study aimed to assess prospectively the efficacy of sequential [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET) to evaluate early response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in stage II and III breast cancer patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Images were acquired with a PET/computed tomography scanner in 64 patients after administration of(More)
A genetic transformation procedure for white pine has been developed after cocultivation of embryogenic tissues with Agrobacterium tumefaciens. This efficient transformation procedure led to an average of four independent transformed lines per gram of cocultivated embryogenic tissue and up to 50 transformed lines can be obtained in a routine experiment.(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of positron emission tomography/computed tomography in staging, prognosis evaluation and restaging of patients with follicular lymphoma. A retrospective study was performed on 45 patients with untreated biopsy-proven follicular lymphoma who underwent 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET/CT (FDG PET/CT) and CT before(More)
The somatic embryogenic process was investigated using immature and mature zygotic embryos originating from 13 open-pollinated seed families selected for their embryogenic capacity from over 128 seed families of Pinus strobus. In a first step, intact megagametophytes with precotyledonary embryos from these families were placed on modified Litvay medium.(More)

To evaluate the impact of dosimetry based on MAA SPECT/CT for the prediction of response, toxicity and survival, and for treatment planning in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated with 90Y-loaded glass microspheres (TheraSphere®). TheraSphere® was administered to 71 patients with inoperable HCC. MAA SPECT/CT quantitative analysis was used(More)
UNLABELLED This study aimed to evaluate the long-term prognostic usefulness of (18)F-FDG PET for patients with metastatic gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEPNETs). METHODS Thirty-eight patients with metastatic GEPNETs were prospectively enrolled. Initial check-up comprised CT scan, (111)In-pentetreotide scintigraphy (SRS), and (18)F-FDG PET.(More)
UNLABELLED Radioembolization of liver cancers using (90)Y-loaded microspheres is experiencing more widespread use. However, few data are available concerning the doses delivered to the tumors and the healthy liver. This retrospective study was conducted to calculate the tumor dosimetry (planned tumor dose [T(plan) D]) and nontumor dosimetry in patients(More)
PURPOSE The utility of [(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) in assessing response at the end of induction therapy is well documented in Hodgkin's and diffuse large B-cell lymphomas, but its role in follicular lymphoma (FL) remains undetermined. We investigated the prognostic significance of PET-CT(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the early theoretical prediction of the 0+-0+ transition of 90Zr, 90Y-PET underwent only recently a growing interest for the development of imaging radioembolization of liver tumors. The aim of this work was to determine the minimum detectable activity (MDA) of 90Y by PET imaging and the impact of time-of-flight (TOF) reconstruction on(More)
