89Zr-PET using different mAbs to detect the effects of a HSP90 inhibitor in patients with metastatic breast cancer
2/9/2014: Clinical Cancer Research has recently published the results of a clinical trial on 89Zr-PET imaging in metastatic breast cancer, carried out in the Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Center at the University of Groningen (the Netherlands) and the Royal Marsden Hospital in London (United Kingdom).
5/7/2014: In a joint effort, researchers from various departments at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands, have recently shown that everolimus, a drug currently used in the treatment of diverse cancer types, reduces the uptake of 89Zr-labeled bevacizumab in patients with neuroendocrine tumors.
13/2/2014: Researchers from the Medical Center of the VU University, Amsterdam, have recently carried out a multicenter evaluation to make the performance of PET/CT procedures using 89Zr uniform across different sites. Their positive results have just been published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
2/8/2013: Last week, researchers at the VU University Medical Center (VUmc) in Amsterdam received a 1-million Euro funding for a multicenter trial in head and neck cancer patients. The funding, granted by KWF/Alpe d’HuZes, will be used by the VUmc to produce 89Zr-radiolabeled antibodies for leading oncological centers in Europe.
