Radiosensitivity, blood perfusion and tumour oxygenation after perflubron emulsion injection.


The effect of 90% and/or 100% w/v perflubron (perfluorooctyl bromide (PFOB); Alliance Pharmaceutical Corp.) emulsions on radiosensitivity, tumour relative perfusion and oxygenation was studied using EMT6 tumours in nude mice. Perflubron (2-15 ml/kg) emulsion was injected. The mice inhaled carbogen for 30 min and 60 min prior to irradiation. The… (More)
