Peripheral benzodiazepine receptors and glucose metabolism in human gliomas


Peripheral benzodiazepine receptors (PBR) are increased in gliomas and augmented glucose metabolism is seen in malignant brain tumors. We investigated the relationship between PBR density (Bmax) and glucose utilization rate (GUR) in 17 patients with cerebral gliomas of different grades. PBR Bmax was assessed by [3H]PK-11195in vitro binding in surgical… (More)
