Effects of hyperthermia on bioenergetic status and phosphorus T1S in human melanoma xenografts monitored by 31P-MRS.

Abstract

Conventional hyperthermia enhances tumor response to radiotherapy through thermal cell inactivation and vascular shut-down, whereas mild hyperthermia potentiates the effect of radiotherapy by improving tumor oxygenation. The work reported here was aimed at investigating whether 31P-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P-MRS) measurements of tumor bioenergetic… (More)
