[Methyl-H-3]-choline incorporation into MCF-7 cells: Correlation with proliferation, choline kinase and phospholipase D assay

Background: [Methyl-H-3]-choline is a promising new positron emission tomography (PET) agent used for cancer imaging whose mechanism has still not fully been elucidated. In this study, whether [methyl-H-3]-choline determined by measuring the activity of choline kinase (ChoK) and phospholipase D (PLD) in rapidly proliferating and confluent breast cancer MCF-7 cells is related to cell proliferation or ...

[methyl-H-3]Choline incorporation into MCF7 tumour cells: correlation with proliferation

Purpose: The aim of the study was to investigate the intracellular location of [methyl-H-3]choline in MCF7 tumour cells and to determine the relationship between [methyl-H-3]choline incorporation and proliferation. Methods: Tumour cells were incubated with [methyl-H-3]choline for 10 min, and then in cold medium to simulate the rapid blood clearance of [methyl-(11)pC]choline. Labelled metabolites were ...

A bolus/infusion paradigm for the novel NMDA receptor SPET tracer [I-123]CNS 1261

We have previously performed quantitative kinetic modeling of [I-123] CNS 1261, a new SPET ligand for the MK801 intrachannel site of the NMDA receptor. We now report a bolus-infusion protocol, which eliminates the need for arterial blood sampling. Dynamic SPET scanning and venous blood sampling were performed in 7 healthy volunteers. Good agreement was obtained between kinetic and equilibrium analysis. ...

A bridging side-on allenylidene dimolybdenum complex without carbonyl stabilization

The bis(nitrile) complex [Mo2Cp2(mu-SMe)(3)(NCCH3)(2)]( BF4) (1) reacts with HCtCCPh(2)(OH) to give the mu-alkyne product [Mo2Cp2(mu-SMe)(3) {HC CCPh2(OH)}](BF4) (2). Sequential treatment with triethylamine and tetrafluoroboric acid converts 2 almost quantitatively, Via the mu-alkynyl derivative 3, into [Mo2Cp2(mu-SMe)(3)(mu-eta(1):eta(2)-C=C=CPh2)] (BF4) (4), the first example of a dinuclear mu-eta(1):eta(2)- ...

A clinical MRI investigation of the relationship between kidney volume measurements and renal function in patients with renovascular disease

Recent improvements in MR image acquisition and post-processing techniques have allowed quantitative kidney volume measurements to be derived from patient studies. These morphological indices can provide "snapshot" assessments that may be related to kidney function. The study objective was to measure cortical and total kidney volumes in patients with renovascular disease (RVD) using contrast-enhanced ...

A CMOS Time-Resolved Fluorescence Lifetime Analysis Micro-System

We describe a CMOS-based micro-system for time-resolved fluorescence lifetime analysis. It comprises a 16 x 4 array of single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) fabricated in 0.35 mu m high-voltage CMOS technology with in-pixel time-gated photon counting circuitry and a second device incorporating an 8 x 8 AlInGaN blue micro-pixellated light-emitting diode (micro-LED) array bump-bonded to an equivalent ...

A cognitive prosthesis and communication support for people with dementia

Computers may have the potential to augment human cognitive processes in ways that could be beneficial for people with dementia. This possibility is being investigated by a multidisciplinary team. Previous work on improving the performance of augmentative communication systems for non-speaking people has shown the value of conversation modelling and prompting in this setting. The impairment of short-term ...

A combined pulmonary-radiology workshop for visual evaluation of COPD: study design, chest CT findings and concordance with quantitative evaluation

The purposes of this study were: to describe chest CT findings in normal non-smoking controls and cigarette smokers with and without COPD; to compare the prevalence of CT abnormalities with severity of COPD; and to evaluate concordance between visual and quantitative chest CT (QCT) scoring. METHODS: Volumetric inspiratory and expiratory CT scans of 294 subjects, including normal non-smokers, smokers ...
