Positron emission tomography and in vivo measurements of tumour perfusion and oxygen utilisation

Cancer Metastasis Reviews

Abstract

The advent of positron emission tomography has provided the clinical investigator with a tool for performing noninvasive (patho)-physiological measurements in humans. The method has been used extensively in the study of cerebral and cardiovascular disease. Oncological applications have been described by a more limited number of centres and have mainly concentrated on cerebral tumours. The first part of this review discusses principles of positron emission tomography and requirements for performing quantitative studies. The second part describes results of one of the most important quantitative techniques: the measurement of tumour blood flow and oxygen metabolism.

COVID-19

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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.
