PURPOSE Inhibition of angiogenesis has shown clinical success in patients with cancer. Thus, imaging approaches that allow for the identification of angiogenic tumors and the detection of response to anti-angiogenic treatment are of high clinical relevance. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We established an in vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) approach that allows(More)
Using a general theory for partition coefficients based on a quantum chemically derived conductor-like screening model for real solvents sigma-moment descriptors, the logarithmic soil sorption coefficients log K(oc) of a database of 440 compounds has been successfully correlated, achieving a standard deviation (root-means-squared [RMS]) of 0.62 log-units on(More)
Models for the prediction of blood-brain partitioning (logBB) and human serum albumin binding (logK(HSA)) of neutral molecules were developed using the set of 5 COSMO-RS sigma-moments as descriptors. These sigma-moments have already been introduced earlier as a general descriptor set for partition coefficients. They are obtained from quantum chemical(More)
The COSMO-RS method, a combination of the quantum chemical dielectric continuum solvation model COSMO with a statistical thermodynamics treatment for more realistic solvation (RS) simulations, has been used for the direct prediction of pKa constants of a large variety of 64 organic and inorganic acids. A highly significant correlation of r(2) = 0.984 with a(More)
A summary of the technical advances that are incorporated in the fourth major release of the Q-CHEM quantum chemistry program is provided, covering approximately the last seven years. These include developments in density functional theory methods and algorithms, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) property evaluation, coupled cluster and perturbation(More)
In a blind validation test the COSMO-RS method, a combination of the quantum chemical dielectric continuum solvation model COSMO with a statistical thermodynamics treatment for more realistic solvation (RS) simulations, has been used for the direct prediction of transfer free energies of 55 demanding pesticide-like compounds. Comparison with experimental(More)
Longitudinal studies on brain pathology and assessment of therapeutic strategies rely on a fully mature adult brain to exclude confounds of cerebral developmental changes. Thus, knowledge about onset of adulthood is indispensable for discrimination of developmental phase and adulthood. We have performed a high-resolution longitudinal MRI study at 11.7T of(More)
Contrast agent free time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography (TOF-MRA) was applied to the intraluminal thread occlusion model of experimental stroke in rat. It was combined with perfusion- and diffusion-weighted imaging (PWI and DWI) sequences to correlate occlusion and reopening of the middle cerebral artery with alterations in these well-established(More)
The COSMO-RS method, a combination of the quantum chemical dielectric continuum solvation model COSMO with COSMO-RS, a statistical thermodynamics treatment of surface interactions, simulations, has been used for the direct, blind prediction of free energies of hydration within the SAMPL challenge. Straight application of the latest version of the COSMOtherm(More)
The COSMO-RS method, a combination of the quantum chemical dielectric continuum solvation model COSMO with a statistical thermodynamics treatment for realistic solvation simulations, has been used for the prediction of pK(a) values in acetonitrile. For a variety of 93 organic acids, the directly calculated values of the free energies of dissociation in(More)
