Bone marrow cell homing to sites of acute tibial fracture: 89Zr-oxine cell labeling with positron emission tomographic imaging in a mouse model

Posted by Kevin Yang ⎜Feb 13, 2019 ⎜ Industry

Bone fracture healing is dependent upon the rapid migration and engraftment of bone marrow (BM) progenitor and stem cells to the site of injury. Stromal cell-derived factor-1 plays a crucial role in recruiting BM cells expressing its receptor CXCR4. Recently, a CXCR4 antagonist, plerixafor, has been used to mobilize BM cells into the blood in efforts to enhance cell migration to sites of injury presumably improving healing. (more…)

Y-90 Radioembolization Long-Term Outcomes in a 185-Patient Cohort

Posted by Kevin Yang ⎜Jul 26, 2018 ⎜ Industry

Y-90 radioembolization for HCC patients with PVT appears to have an acceptable safety profile, with better survival in CP-A patients than in CP-B patients. This study confirms prior reports of survival in PVT patients treated with Y-90 radioembolization, and survival after Y-90 radioembolization appears to exceed that in
similar patients treated with systemic therapies. Despite the negative studies recently reported, Y-90 radioembolization is a reasonable treatment option in properly selected PVT patients. Further controlled studies are needed to compare it with systemic therapies or other locoregional treatments for advanced-stage HCC.

Targeted a-Therapy of Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer Analysis Suggests Efficacy Regarding Duration of Tumor Control

Posted by Kevin Yang ⎜Jun 6, 2018 ⎜ Industry

A positive response for surrogate parameters demonstrates remarkable antitumor activity for 225Ac-PSMA-617. Swimmer-plot analysis indicates a promising duration of tumor control, especially considering the unfavorable prognostic profile of the selected advanced-stage patients. Xerostomia was the main reason patients discontinued therapy or refused additional administrations and was in the same dimension as nonresponse; this finding indicates that further modifications of the treatment regimen with regard to side effects might be necessary to further enhance the therapeutic range.
