This retrospective study was performed to evaluate a possible association between the presence of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations and the standardized uptake value (SUV) of (18)F-fluoro-2-deoxy-glucose ((18)F-FDG) uptake in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We included 100 patients who were tested for EGFR mutations by(More)
AIM The aim of this retrospective study was to determine whether glucose metabolism assessed by using Fluorine-18 (F-18) fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) provides prognostic information independent of established prognostic factors in patients with Ewing sarcoma. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the(More)
We compared the diagnostic performance of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and (99 m)Tc-methylene diphosphonate bone scintigraphy (BS) for the detection of bone metastasis in osteosarcoma. We retrospectively reviewed 206 patients with stage II–IV osteosarcoma treated with surgery and chemotherapy as well as(More)
We evaluated the ability of pretreatment 18 F-FDG uptake by regional lymph nodes to predict the survival of patients with resectable colorectal cancer. The records of 78 patients with AJCC stage III colorectal cancer (pathologically confirmed node-positive disease without evidence of distant metastasis) treated with surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy were(More)
The tumor-associated glycoprotein (TAG)-72 is expressed in the majority of human adenocarcinomas but is rarely expressed in most normal tissues, which makes it a potential target for the diagnosis and therapy of a variety of human cancers. Here we describe the construction, affinity maturation, and biological characterization of an anti-TAG-72 humanized(More)
UNLABELLED The evaluation of mediastinal lymph node involvement in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is very important for the selection of surgical candidates. PET using (18)F-FDG has remarkably improved mediastinal staging in NSCLC. However, false (18)F-FDG PET results remain a problem. This study was undertaken to identify histologic and(More)
This study evaluated the usefulness of the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) as a measure of histologic response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with extremity osteosarcoma. The correlation between [18 F]FDG PET SUVmax values and histologic response to preoperative chemotherapy was also assessed prospectively using PET/MRI. A total of 26(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate response and survival according to (18)F-fluoro-2-deoxy-glucose uptake at presentation in patients with gefitinib-treated non-small cell lung cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We retrospectively analyzed 84 positron emission tomography/computed tomography findings. Patient characteristics, response rates, and survivals were evaluated(More)
Human amniotic epithelial cells (h-AECs), which have various merits as a cell source for cell therapy, are known to differentiate into cardiomyocytes in vitro. However, the ability of h-AECs to differentiate into cardiomyocytes in vivo and their cell transplantation effects on myocardial infarction are still unknown. In this study, we assessed whether(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this retrospective study was to determine whether glucose metabolism assessed by fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (F-FDG) PET/computed tomography (CT) provides prognostic information independent of established prognostic factors in patients with gastric lymphoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS We reviewed the medical records of 86 patients(More)
