BACKGROUND Left ventricular (LV) remodeling after myocardial infarction (MI) occurs frequently despite successful percutaneaous coronary intervention (PCI) but cannot be predicted by simple clinical parameters. METHODS AND RESULTS This prospective study tested the value of rest and low-dose dobutamine (LDD) Tc-99m-mibi gated-SPECT for early prediction of(More)
In breast cancer, neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is widely used in order to enable a conservative surgery. In patients treated with NAC, the use of sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy, which is a good predictor of the axillary nodal status in previously untreated patients, is still discussed. The aim of our study was to determine clinicopathological factors(More)
Hexakis (2-methoxy isobutylisonitrile) technetium-99m [(99mTc]MIBI), a new tracer of myocardial blood flow, was compared with 201TI CI in cultures of myocardial cells of newborn rats. The kinetics of uptake and release of both tracers were assessed in basal conditions and in the presence of 5 mM cyanide, an inhibitor of the respiratory chain, 0.1 mM(More)
BACKGROUND Thrombus aspiration devices have been shown to improve reperfusion criteria and to reduce distal embolization in patients treated by percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) in the acute phase of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). There are, however, little data about their efficacy in the reduction of infarct size. METHODS We sought(More)
Since 201Tl, 99mTc-sestamibi and 99mTc-teboroxime concentrate in cardiac cells through different mechanisms, we compared their uptake in cultured normal cells and carcinoma cell lines in order to define their possible use for tumor evaluation in vivo. Four lines of normal cells from animals, including myocytes from newborn rats, and four lines of human(More)
A new method for centering and reorienting automatically the left ventricle in thallium-201 myocardial single photon emission computed tomography (SPET) is proposed. The processing involves the following steps: (a) the transverse sections of the left ventricle are segmented, (b) the three-dimensional skeleton of the left ventricle is extracted using tools(More)
We examined the relevance of a pre-treatment single static view 99mTc-sestamibi scintimammography and expression of multidrug resistance proteins as predictors of response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy for invasive breast cancer. Forty-five patients affected by primary breast cancer underwent clinical examination, mammography, sonography, 99mTc-sestamibi(More)
To identify proteins involved in melanoma metastasis mechanisms, comparative proteomic studies were undertaken on B16F10 and B16Bl6 melanoma cell lines and their subsequent syngenic primary tumours as pulmonary metastases were present only in the mice bearing a B16Bl6 tumour. 2DE analyses followed by MALDI-TOF identification showed variations of 6 proteins(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to assess the value of technetium 99m sestamibi gated single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in predicting the evolution of left ventricular volumes in patients treated successfully in the acute phase of a myocardial infarction (MI). METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-nine patients with acute MI and early(More)
The aim of the trial was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of scintimmammography with technetium-99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile (99mTc-MIBI) in the detection of primary breast cancer and to verify its clinical usefulness. A total of 246 patients with a suspicious breast mass or positive mammogram were included in this prospective European multicentre(More)
