PURPOSE [(18)F]VM4-037 was recently developed as a positron emission tomography (PET) tracer for the detection of carbonic anhydrase IX (CAIX), a tumor-specific protein upregulated under hypoxic conditions. In this study, the accumulation of [(18)F]VM4-037 was determined in two CAIX-expressing preclinical human tumor models. PROCEDURES U373 and HT29(More)
PURPOSE We tested therapeutic efficacy of two dose painting strategies of applying higher radiation dose to tumor subvolumes with high FDG uptake (biologic target volume, BTV): dose escalation and dose redistribution. We also investigated whether tumor response was determined by the highest dose in BTV or the lowest dose in gross tumor volume (GTV). (More)
Neo-adjuvant chemoradiotherapy followed by surgery is the standard treatment with curative intent for oesophageal cancer patients, with 5-year overall survival rates up to 50 %. However, patients’ quality of life is severely compromised by oesophagectomy, and eventually many patients die due to metastatic disease. Most solid tumours, including oesophageal(More)
