INTRODUCTION For many tumors, the overexpression of the chemokine receptor CXCR4 is associated with increased malignancy and poor patient outcomes. However, comprehensive data for neuroendocrine neoplasms of the lung are still lacking. METHODS CXCR4 expression was evaluated in a panel of bronchopulmonary neuroendocrine neoplasms (BP-NEN) comprising(More)
The pulmonary neuroendocrine neoplasms originate from the enterochromaffin cells which are diffusely distributed in the body. The incidence of these tumors has increased significantly in recent decades due to the available diagnostics. They make up about 1-2% of all lung tumors and 20-30% of all neuroendocrine neoplasms. The current WHO classification from(More)
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVES Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms are known for their overexpression of somatostatin receptors (SSTRs), which provide the molecular basis for diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. In contrast, few data on the SSTR expression profile exist for bronchopulmonary neuroendocrine neoplasms (BP-NEN). DESIGN AND SETTINGS A(More)
A potential milestone in personalized nuclear medicine is theranostics of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) based on molecular imaging using PET/CT with 68Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) ligands and molecular radiotherapy using PSMA-targeted radioligand therapy (PRLT) with 177Lu-PSMA ligands. 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT(More)
Results of classical anticoagulant therapy in cancer patients with venous thromboembolism (VT) are highly discussed. We retrospectively analysed the outcome of 43 patients with VT and cancer: 32% developed specific complications during either i.v. heparin therapy (10 +/- 0.9 days) or treatment by antivitamin K (106 +/- 14.9 days). Recurrence of(More)
