PET and PET-CT in Oncology describes the principles of positron emission tomography and is a useful resource for incorporating the technique in clinical practice. In a clear and straightforward fashion, this heavily-illustrated text offers instructive information and overviews of the basic principles of PET and PET-CT as well as the routine clinical PET scanning procedures for all important oncological indications. It is designed to serve as a reference work for specialists in nuclear medicine and radiology (including therapy planning) and for oncologists. It also provides student and physicians in other medical specialities with a general introduction to the effective integration of this modern technique into routine clinical diagnostics. Above all, this volume illustrates the importance of PET and PET-CT in comparison with other imaging techniques. [less ▲]

Hepatocyte iron release was studied in vivo in rats. After the injection of iron 59-labeled ferritin, hemoglobin, or human asialotransferrin, the proportions of the radioactive iron returned to the plasma and incorporated into stores were determined under various conditions. Iron 55-labeled rat transferrin was injected at the same time as the 59Fe-labeled compound, and storage iron release was calculated from the cumulative incorporation of the two isotopes in the red cell mass over 2 weeks. The various 59Fe-labeled compounds were processed differently by the hepatocyte, but the radioactive iron was incorporated in the same iron stores. About 6% of the hepatocyte storage iron was released daily in normal rats, but a pool of iron that is not mobilized spontaneously was clearly identified in iron overload. Iron turnover in the hepatocyte was regulated by the rate of erythropoiesis and iron status of the animal, and inflammation blocked hepatocyte iron release. A strong correlation between hepatocyte iron release and plasma transferrin receptor levels was observed (p less than 0.001), suggesting that plasma transferrin receptors could mediate the regulation of hepatocyte iron mobilization in rats.

Phenylketonuria is a metabolic disease caused by phenylalanine hydroxylase deficiency. Treatment is based on a strict natural protein-restricted diet that is associated with the risk of malnutrition and severe psychosocial burden. Oral administration of tetrahydrobiopterin can increase residual enzyme activity, but most patients with severe clinical phenotypes are non-responders. We performed liver cell transplantation in 6 years-old boy with severe tetrahydrobiopterin non-responsive phenylketonuria, who failed to comply with diet prescriptions. The transplanted hepatocytes were obtained in part from an explanted glycogen storage type 1b liver. Following two infusions, blood phenylalanine levels returned within the therapeutic target while the phenylalanine half-life assessed by loading tests decreased from 43 h to 19 h. However, three months later, blood phenylalanine concentrations increased and the phenylalanine intake had to be reduced. Cell based therapy is a promising therapeutic option in phenylketonuria and the domino concept may solve the issue of cell sources for hepatocyte transplantation. [less ▲]

Decreased insulin sensitivity plays a major role in various human diseases. particularly type 2 diabetes mellitus, and is associated with a higher risk of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular complications. Thiazolidinediones, more commonly termed glitazones, are the first drugs to specifically target muscular insulin resistance. They have proven efficacy for reducing plasma glucose levels in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus treated with diet alone, sulphonylureas, metformin or insulin. In addition, they are associated with some improvement of the cardiovascular risk profile. However, troglitazone, the first compound approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the US, proved to be hepatotoxic and was withdrawn from the market after the report of several dozen deaths or cases of severe hepatic failure requiring liver transplantation. It remains unclear whether or not hepatotoxicity is a class effect or is related to unique properties of troglitazone. Rosiglitazone and pioglitazone, two other glitazones, appear to have similar efficacy with regard to blood glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus as compared with troglitazone. In controlled clinical trials, the incidence of significant (> or =3 x upper limit of normal) increases in liver enzyme levels (ALT in particular) was similar with rosiglitazone or pioglitazone as compared with placebo, whereas troglitazone was associated with a 3-fold greater incidence. In contrast to the numerous case reports of acute liver failure in patients receiving troglitzone, only a few case reports of hepatotoxicity have been reported in patients treated with rosiglitazone until now, with a causal relationship remaining uncertain. Furthermore, no single case of severe hepatotoxicity has been reported yet with pioglitazone. It should be mentioned that troglitazone, unlike pioglitazone and rosiglitazone, induces the cytochrome P450 isoform 3A4, which is partly responsible for its metabolism, and may be prone to drug interactions. Importantly enough, obesity, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus are associated with liver abnormalities, especially non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, independent of any pharmacological treatment. This association obviously complicates the selection of patients who are good candidates for a treatment with glitazones as well as the monitoring of liver tests after initiation of therapy with any thiazolidinedione compound. While regular monitoring of liver enzymes is still recommended and more long term data are desirable, current evidence from clinical trials and postmarketing experience in the US supports the conclusion that rosiglitazone and pioglitazone do not share the hepatotoxic profile of troglitazone.

INTRODUCTION: Due to a rise in HCV induced liver cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma becomes more prevalent in Western European countries. The HepCar registry is an initiative in which patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, their treatment and follow up are registered. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Belgian physicians were asked to report all new cases of hepatocellular carcinoma which were seen between January 2003 and December 2003. Reporting was done on a voluntary basis. Data reported were: demographic figures, the nature of the underlying liver disease, presentation characteristics of the tumour, laboratory findings and choice of therapy. Every six months, a reminder was sent to determine survival. RESULTS: 131 patients (94 male/37 female) were reported. Mean age was 63 years +/- 13. Underlying liver disease was HCV (n = 54, 41%), HBV (n = 22, 17%), alcoholic liver disease (n = 39, 30%) and miscellaneous (n =16, 12%). Diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma was made by surveillance in 47 (36%) patients. After logistic regression, survival was 5 times better for patients inside the Milan criteria (one lesion less than 5 cm in diameter or less than 3 nodules each less than 3 cm in the absence of vascular invasion and metastasis). DISCUSSION: Tumours inside the Milan criteria have a better survival. The majority of the patients have an underlying cirrhosis as background for the development of a HCC. [less ▲]

Incoherent scattering of photons off two remote atoms with a -level structure is used as a basic Young-type interferometer to herald long-lived entanglement of an arbitrary degree. The degree of entanglement, as measured by the concurrence, is found to be tunable by two easily accessible experimental parameters. Fixing one of them to certain values unveils an analog to the Malus’ law. An estimate of the variation in the degree of entanglement due to uncertainties in an experimental realization is given.
