Assessment of early changes in H-fluorothymidine uptake after treatment with gefitinib in human tumor xenograft in comparison with Ki-67 and phospho-EGFR expression


Background: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether early changes in 3′-deoxy-3′-H-fluorothymidine (H-FLT) uptake can reflect the antiproliferative effect of gefitinib in a human tumor xenograft, in comparison with the histopathological markers, Ki-67 and phosphorylated EGFR (phospho-EGFR). Methods: An EGFR-dependent human tumor xenograft model… (More)
