Purpose: The use of FDG PET has become more readily available over the past 15 years. It can be used to aid initial staging of testicular tumours and also assess the response to treatment in the metastatic setting, especially as residual masses are frequently seen after chemotherapy. There have been some recent concerns that FDG PET used to assess for residual disease may have a low positive predictive value [1]. A retrospective audit was carried out to look at the performance of FDG PET in seminoma patients treated at the Edinburgh Cancer Centre.

Two novelN‐6‐18F ‐alkyl amino acid imaging agents,18F ‐FHex‐α‐l‐Glu and18F ‐FHex‐β‐Glu, were designed and synthesized as potential probes for PET imaging of tumors.18F ‐FHex‐α‐l‐Glu and18F ‐FHex‐β‐Glu were synthesized in decay‐uncorrected yields of 16 ± 4% (n = 5) within about 50 minutes and 11 ± 3% (n = 3) in about 60 minutes, respectively. Their radiochemical purities were more than 95%. N‐18F ‐labeled amino acids are important substitutes for new positron emission tomography (PET) imaging tracers complementing the deficiency of18F ‐fluorodeoxy...

In this study the EGFR over‐expressing human head/neck OSC‐19‐luc2‐cGFP tumour with transfected GFP gen e was used in a skin‐fold window‐chamber model in BALB/c nude mice. The uptake and localization of the conjugate in the tumour and its surrounding normal tissues were studied by an intravital confocal laser scanning microscopy with image analyses. The tumour was also irradiated with 690 nm las er light 24 hours after conjugate administration. The vascular and tumour responses were examined by morphological evaluation and immunohistochemistry (IHC). The amount of conjugate in the tumour peaked at 24‐4...

ABSTRACT Introduction: Use of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in carcinoma prostate (CaP) has deleterious effect on bone mineral density (BMD) leading to increase incidence of osteoporosis and skeletal-related events. We evaluated bone health status and impact of bone-directed therapy (BDT) and ADT on BMD in these patients from Jan 2015-Dec 2018. Materials and Method: Baseline bone health was assessed using Tc-99 MDP Bone scan/ DEXA scan for patients on ADT. Monthly zoledronic acid (ZA) was given to high-risk candidates (T-score ≤ 2.5 or previous hip/vertebral fracture) or Skel et al. metastatic patients who were rec...
