Objective The aim of this study was to investigate whether the blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can evaluate tumor maturity and preoperatively differentiate prostate cancer (PCa) from benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). Patients and methods BOLD MRI based on transverse relaxation time*-weighted echo planar imaging was performed to assess PCa (19) and BPH (22) responses to carbogen (95% O2 and 5% CO2). The average signal values of PCa and BPH… Expand
MR imaging biomarkers evaluating vascular normalization window after anti-vessel treatment
Dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI and intravoxel incoherent motion MRI are helpful when quantifying the tumor perfusion and evaluating the vascular normalization window after anti-vessel therapy. Expand
Multiparametric MRI and radiomics in prostate cancer: a review
Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) is an imaging modality that combines anatomical MR imaging with one or more functional MRI sequences. It has become a versatile tool for detecting and characterisingExpand
Hypoxia and the phenomenon of immune exclusion
An upstream role for hypoxia as a common biological determinant of immune exclusion in solid tumors is speculated about and the current state of ex vivo and in vivo imaging of hypoxic determinants in relation to T cell distribution is discussed, to discover functional-morphological tumor features that could support clinical monitoring.

The role of vessel maturation and vessel functionality in spontaneous fluctuations of T2*‐weighted GRE signal within tumors
It is demonstrated that adequate vessel functionality and advanced vessel maturation could explain at least in part the occurrence of spontaneous T2*w GRE signal fluctuations. Expand
In vivo BOLD contrast MRI mapping of subcutaneous vascular function and maturation: Validation by intravital microscopy
These results provide a hemodynamic explanation for the selective registration of MRI response tohypercapnia with mature vessels and the response to hyperoxia with total vascular function. Expand
In vivo prediction of vascular susceptibility to vascular susceptibility endothelial growth factor withdrawal: magnetic resonance imaging of C6 rat glioma in nude mice.
MRI provides in vivo visualization of vascular maturity and prognosis of vascular obliteration induced by VEGF withdrawal. Expand
Noninvasive evaluation of intrarenal oxygenation with BOLD MRI.
BOLD MRI can be used to monitor changes in intrarenal oxygenation in humans in a noninvasive fashion and demonstrates the feasibility of such a method on the basis of blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) MRI. Expand
Heterogeneity of angiogenesis and blood vessel maturation in human tumors: implications for antiangiogenic tumor therapies.
Angiogenesis was found to be present in all tumors with characteristic and significant differences between the tumor types and there was a considerable degree of heterogeneity in the intensity of angiogenesis within each tumor group, as indicated by large standard deviations. Expand
A "vascular normalization index" as potential mechanistic biomarker to predict survival after a single dose of cediranib in recurrent glioblastoma patients.
It is shown that evaluation of biomarkers as early as after one day of anti-VEGF therapy with cediranib is predictive of response in patients with recurrent glioblastoma, and the vascular normalization index described here should be validated in randomized clinical trials. Expand
Vascular Pericyte Density and Angiogenesis Associated with Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate
Pericytes were found to be key cellular components of developing new vessels in adenocarcinoma of the prostate with their numbers increased at sites of luminal maturation and increased pericyte density was found internal to the peripheral region, suggesting more mature vessels lie more centrally.

The role of angiogenesis, vascular maturation, regression and stroma infiltration in dormancy and growth of implanted MLS ovarian carcinoma spheroids
Infiltration of alpha‐SMA positive stroma cells into the spheroid was associated with functional vascularization and tumor growth, and stroma infiltration and vascular maturation are an important checkpoint linking the angiogenic switch with initiation of tumor progression. Expand
Tumor angiogenesis correlates with metastasis in invasive prostate carcinoma.
Assay of microvessel density within invasive tumors may prove valuable in selecting patients for aggressive adjuvant therapies in early prostate carcinoma, and was present predominantly in the poorly differentiated tumors. Expand
Improved tumor oxygenation and survival in glioblastoma patients who show increased blood perfusion after cediranib and chemoradiation
It is demonstrated that improved perfusion occurs only in a subset of patients in cediranib-containing regimens, and is associated with improved overall survival in these nGBM patients, and these results may provide new insight into the selection of glioblastoma patients most likely to benefit from anti-VEGF treatments.
