PURPOSE Immuno-positron emission tomography (PET), the combination of PET with monoclonal antibodies (mAb), is an attractive option to improve tumor detection and to guide mAb-based therapy. The long-lived positron emitter zirconium-89 ((89)Zr) has ideal physical characteristics for immuno-PET with intact mAbs but has never been used in a clinical setting.(More)
UNLABELLED Immuno-PET is an appealing concept in the detection of tumors and planning of antibody-based therapy. For this purpose, the long-lived positron emitter (89)Zr (half-life, 78.4 h) recently became available. The aim of the present first-in-humans (89)Zr immuno-PET study was to assess safety, biodistribution, radiation dose, and quantification of(More)
CASE DESCRIPTION Two patients, 68 and 72 years old, were admitted with fever whilst under treatment with ruxolitinib for myelofibrosis. They had not been screened for latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) and extensive tuberculosis was found in both patients. They died within weeks from complications of fulminant disease. CONCLUSION Doctors who prescribe(More)
UNLABELLED Considering the different treatment strategy for transformed follicular lymphoma (TF) as opposed to follicular lymphoma (FL), diagnosing transformation early in the disease course is important. There is evidence that (18)F-FDG has utility as a biomarker of transformation. However, quantitative thresholds may require inclusion of homogeneous(More)
Selection of the right drug for the right patient is a promising approach to increase clinical benefit of targeted therapy with monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Assessment of in vivo biodistribution and tumor targeting of mAbs to predict toxicity and efficacy is expected to guide individualized treatment and drug development. Molecular imaging with positron(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation between the (18)F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) standardized uptake value (SUV) and the diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in newly diagnosed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Pretreatment FDG-PET and(More)
PURPOSE Treatment of patients with diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) includes rituximab, an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody (mAb). Insufficient tumor targeting might cause therapy failure. Tumor uptake of 89Zirconium (89Zr)-mAb is a potential imaging biomarker for tumor targeting, since it depends on target antigen expression and accessibility. The aim of(More)
