In vivo optical imaging of folate receptor-β in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.


OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Folate receptor (FR) expression, although known to be elevated in many types of cancer and inflammatory cells, has not been well characterized in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). We hypothesized that tumor infiltrating inflammatory cells expressing FR-β could allow fluorescent visualization of HNSCC tumors using folate… (More)
