Significant evidence has indicated that tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) play a critical role in the proliferation, invasion, angiogenesis, and metastasis of a variety of human carcinomas. In this study, we investigated whether near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging using a macrophage mannose receptor (MMR; CD206)-targeting agent could be used to(More)
PURPOSE To assess the potential utility of an integrin αvβ3-targeting radiotracer, technetium 99m-PEG4-E[PEG4-cyclo(arginine-glycine-aspartic acid-D-phenylalanine-lysine)]2 ((99m)Tc-3PRGD2), for single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/computed tomography (CT) for monitoring of the progression and prognosis of liver fibrosis in a rat model.

PURPOSE Optical imaging is emerging as a powerful tool for the noninvasive imaging of the biological processes in living subjects. This study aimed to investigate whether optical imaging of integrin αvβ3 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression can serve as sensitive biomarkers for tumor early response to antiangiogenic therapy. METHODS We(More)
"Training" the host immune system to recognize and systemically eliminate residual tumor lesions and micrometastases is a promising strategy for cancer therapy. In this study, we investigated whether integrin αvβ6-targeted photodynamic therapy (PDT) of tumors using a phthalocyanine dye-labeled probe (termed DSAB-HK) could trigger the host immune response,(More)
