Relationships between hypoxia induced factor-1α and 18F-FDG PET/CT parameters in colorectal cancer
ConclusionAlthough the presence of a positive correlation between tumour SUVmax and %TmNcr shows that there are hypoxic cells in cancer tissue with high FDG uptake, the relationship between the presence of HIF-1α and enhanced glucose metabolism and pathological prognostic factors of tumour was not shown. Strong nuclear immunohistochemical staining in tumour cells adjacent to invasive border and inflammatory cells leads us to believe that HIF-1α plays a role in the invasion area of tumour microenvironment.ResumenObjetivoEl factor inducible para hipoxia (HIF-1) tiene un papel crítico en la homeostasis del ...
