The development of radiolabeled biochemical compounds and imaging devices to detect radioactivity by external imaging has expanded the use of nuclear medicine studies in drug development. Drug discovery and development are accelerating due to rapid synthesis of potential drugs and development of high-throughput in vitro tests. Since imaging can play a major role in drug development because of its ability to quantitate drug properties in vivo, it is beginning to be used in all phases of drug… Expand

Advances in Radiotracer Development for Molecular Imaging
Molecular imaging is currently defined by the society of nuclear medicine as the visualization, characterization and measurement of biological processes at the molecular and cellular levels in humansExpand
Review: Deoxyglucose compounds labeled with isotopes different from 18-fuoride: is there a future in clinical practice?
In the area of molecular imaging of nuclear medicine, derivatives of radionuclide-labeled deoxyglucose will become an important tool for the diagnosis and carcinoma treatment in the clinic. Expand
Molecular imaging of gefitinib activity in an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-bearing xenograft model
The results indicate that 111In-EC-P-Tyr can detect tumor phospho-tyrosine kinase activity in animal models and merits investigation in the clinic to determine if it can predict patient responses to kinase inhibitors based on phosphokinase imaging. Expand

1 From the Divisions of Diagnostic Imaging (D.J.Y., C.G.K., A.A., D.F.Y., C.S.O., J.L.B., J.J.W., E.E.K., D.A.P.) and Radiation Oncology (N.R.S.), University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center,Expand
Assessment of therapeutic tumor response using 99mtc-ethylenedicysteine-glucosamine.
99mTc-EC-DG is involved in cell nuclei activity and could assess the therapeutic tumor response and the efficacy of paclitaxel and cisplatin treatment in rodent models could be assessed using tumor/muscle ratios. Expand
Occult lung infarction may induce false interpretation of 18F-FDG PET in primary staging of pulmonary malignancies
In patients with pulmonary malignancies, synchronous lung infarction may induce pathological FDG accumulation that can mimic active tumour manifestations, which may allow avoidance of false positive FDG PET interpretation. Expand
[(186/188)Re] rhenium-ethylene dicysteine (Re-Ec): preparation and evaluation for possible use in endovascular brachytherapy.
The preparation and pharmacological behavior of [(188/186)Re]Re-EC confirms its similarity to (188)Re-MAG(3) and its superiority over ( 188)ReO(4)(-) for use in endovascular brachytherapy. Expand
Vascular endothelial growth factor, hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor, basic fibroblast growth factor, and placenta growth factor in human meningiomas and their relation to angiogenesis and malignancy.
Meningiomas do not show an angiogenic switch involving VEGF and/or hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor, as has previously been found in gliomas, and the biological activity of V EGF and basic fibroblast growth factor in meningiomas suggests that both are potential targets for antiangiogenic therapy.

Discovery of a metabolic pathway mediating glucose-induced desensitization of the glucose transport system. Role of hexosamine biosynthesis in the induction of insulin resistance.
It is indicated that a unique metabolic pathway exists in adipocytes that mediates desensitization of the insulin-responsive GTS, and that an early step in this pathway involves the conversion of fructose 6-phosphate to glucosamine 6- phosphate by the first and rate-limiting enzyme of the hexosamine pathway, glutamine:fructose-6-ph phosphate amidotransferase.

Intense F-18 FDG accumulation in stomach in a patient with Hodgkin lymphoma: Helicobacter pylori infection as a pitfall in oncologic diagnosis with F-18 FDG PET imaging.
Helicobacter pylori is a Gram-negative, spiral rod that has been proved to be responsible for chronic antral gastritis and is accepted as the etiologic factor of gastritis. Expand
Dynamic O-Glycosylation of Nuclear and Cytosolic Proteins
Estimation of the recently cloned β-N-acetylglucosaminidase supports the identification of this protein as an O-GlcNAcase and identifies important interactions and modifications that may regulate the enzyme and O- GlcNAc cycling. Expand
Activation of Sp1-mediated Vascular Permeability Factor/Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Transcription Requires Specific Interaction with Protein Kinase C ζ*
A novel pathway whereby Sp1 promotes the transcription of vascular permeability factor/vascular endothelial growth factor (VPF/VEGF), a potent angiogenic factor, by interacting directly and specifically with protein kinase C ζ (PKC ζ) isoform in renal cell carcinoma is described. Expand
