BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Inflammation and reactive oxygen species are associated with the promotion of various cancers. The use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in cancer prevention treatments has been promising in numerous cancers. We report the evaluation of NSAIDs chemically modified by the addition of a redox-active nitroxide group.(More)
We show here that hyperpolarized [1-(13) C]pyruvate can be used to detect treatment response in a glioma tumor model; a tumor type where detection of response with (18) fluoro-2-deoxyglucose, using positron emission tomography, is limited by the high background signals from normal brain tissue. (13) C chemical shift images acquired following intravenous(More)
Therapies with both immunomodulatory and neuroprotective properties are thought to have the greatest promise in reducing the severity and progression of multiple sclerosis (MS). Several reactive oxygen (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) are implicated in inflammatory-mediated damage to the central nervous system (CNS) in MS and its animal model,(More)
SIGNIFICANCE Proton-electron double resonance imaging (PEDRI) employs electron paramagnetic resonance irradiation with low field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) so that the electron spin polarization is transferred to nearby protons, resulting in higher signal. PEDRI provides information about free radical distribution and, indirectly, about the local(More)
