In vivo measurements of regional cerebral blood flow and blood volume in patients with brain tumours using positron emission tomography

Acta neurochirurgica
A A LammertsmaT Jones


In 21 patients with cerebral tumours regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and blood volume (rCBV) were measured. In the tumours, blood flow and volume were variable and unrelated even in tumours of the same type and grade. In the contralateral grey and white matter a (linear) relationship was found between rCBF and rCBV. Following operation, rCBF and rCBV in the contralateral hemisphere may increase due to lowering of intracranial pressure. Preliminary data shows that both factors decrease following whole brain irradiation.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.
