The renal handling of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (CP) was investigated by measuring the renal clearance of creatinine, inulin, and free platinum in ten cancer patients. Free platinum clearances exceeded the glomerular filtration rate in all time periods. For example, at 1 to 2 hr, the mean clearance of free platinum was 224 +/- 32 (S.E.) ml/min compared(More)
Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 3 (CIN3) is the precursor of mostsquamous carcinomas and serves as a surrogate end point. However, small CIN3 lesions are rarely associated with concurrent invasion. We hypothesized that aggressive follow-up for cytology of atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) or low-grade squamous intraepithelial(More)
Measurement of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA load has been suggested as a means for improving the positive predictive value of HPV testing for detecting cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 3 and cancer (CIN3+). We hypothesized that lesions surrounding CIN3+ (especially the extent of associated CIN1) are important determinants of load, which limit its(More)
BACKGROUND Given the significant activity and tolerability of gemcitabine in patients with relapsed Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL), the critical role that nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) appears to play in the pathogenesis of this tumor, the ability of bortezomib to inhibit NF-kappaB activity, and laboratory studies suggesting synergistic antitumor effects of(More)
PURPOSE To noninvasively assess vascular hemodynamics with photoacoustic imaging (PAI) and blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in phantoms and in an animal model. MATERIALS AND METHODS In vivo studies were performed with institutional animal care and use committee approval. In vitro experiments were performed by using(More)
There is a need for safer and improved methods for non-invasive imaging of the gastrointestinal tract. Modalities based on X-ray radiation, magnetic resonance and ultrasound suffer from limitations with respect to safety, accessibility or lack of adequate contrast. Functional intestinal imaging of dynamic gut processes has not been practical using existing(More)
Hypoxia is a recognized characteristic of tumors that influences efficacy of radiotherapy (RT). Photoacoustic imaging (PAI) is a relatively new imaging technique that exploits the optical characteristics of hemoglobin to provide information on tissue oxygenation. In the present study, PAI based measures of tumor oxygen saturation (%sO2) were compared to(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the usefulness of photoacoustic imaging (PAI) for spatiotemporal mapping of tumor hemodynamics in a rabbit model of head and neck carcinoma. Shope cottontail rabbit papilloma virus associated VX2 carcinomas were established in adult male New Zealand White rabbits (n = 9) by surgical transplantation of tumor(More)
In this work, we utilized photoacoustic imaging (PAI) with co-registered ultrasound (US) to non-invasively assess salivary gland function in vivo. A significant increase in salivary gland oxygen saturation was observed on PAI within minutes after gustatory stimulation of healthy mice reflective of the hyperemic response associated with secretion of saliva.(More)
