Use of Pittsburgh Compound B (PiB) Molecules and PiB-Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PiB-PET/CT) Imaging for the Identification and Diagnosis of Meningiomas
2010-007 – Meningiomas are a common tumor often found in the thin layers of tissue that surround the brain. However, many other types of tumors can arise in the same locations. Variation in the appearance of meningiomas can make the accurate diagnosis of meningioma difficult based on current methods, such as Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Pathologists can accurately... Read More
2009-362 – Background Topoisomerase I has been used as a drug target for cancer treatment. By inhibiting the religation step of the enzyme, the formation of topo I-DNA complexes block the advancing replication complexes, which will ultimately cause cell death.
