Monitoring and Targeting Anti-VEGF Induced Hypoxia within the Viable Tumor by 19F-MRI and Multispectral Analysis.
The effect of anti-angiogenic agents on tumor oxygenation has been in question for a number of years, where both increases and decreases in tumor pO2 have been observed. This dichotomy in results may be explained by the role of vessel normalization i

In vivo quantitative imaging of tumor pH by nanosonophore assisted multispectral photoacoustic imaging.
Changes of physiological pH are correlated with several pathologies, therefore the development of more effective medical pH imaging methods is of paramount importance. Here, we report on an in vivo pH mapping nanotechnology. This subsurface chemical

Tumor invasion unit in gastric cancer revealed by QDs-based in situ molecular imaging and multispectral analysis.
In tumor tissues, cancer cells, tumor infiltrating macrophages and tumor neo-vessels in close spatial vicinity with one another form tumor invasion unit, which is a biologically important tumor microenvironment of metastasis to facilitate cancer inva

Blocking tumor growth by targeting autophagy and SQSTM1 in vivo.
Autophagy is a highly conserved cellular process for degradation of bulk cytoplasmic materials in response to starvation and maintenance of cellular homeostasis. Dysfunction of autophagy is implicated in a variety of diseases including cancer. In a r

Quantum dot-NanoLuc bioluminescence resonance energy transfer enables tumor imaging and lymph node mapping in vivo.
A small luciferase protein (Nluc) was conjugated to QDs as a bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) pair. The conjugate showed 76% BRET efficiency and lymph node mapping was successfully performed. The cRGD peptide was conjugated to QD-Nluc

Label-free Rapid Viable Enrichment of Circulating Tumor Cell by Photosensitive Polymer-based Microfilter Device.
We present a clinical device for simple, rapid, and viable isolation of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from cancer patient bloods. In spite of the clinical importance of CTCs, the lack of easy and non-biased isolation methods is a big hurdle for impl

Dynamic oxygen challenge evaluated by NMR T1 and T2*--insights into tumor oxygenation.
There is intense interest in developing non-invasive prognostic biomarkers of tumor response to therapy, particularly with regard to hypoxia. It has been suggested that oxygen sensitive MRI, notably blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) and tissue oxyg

Multispectral opto-acoustic tomography of exercised muscle oxygenation.
Unlike near-infrared spectroscopy, multispectral opto-acoustic tomography (MSOT) has the potential to offer high-resolution imaging assessment of hemodynamics and blood saturation levels in muscle. However motion artifacts impede the real-time applic

Tumor-selective replication herpes simplex virus-based technology significantly improves clinical detection and prognostication of viable circulating tumor cells.
Detection of circulating tumor cells remains a significant challenge due to their vast physical and biological heterogeneity. We developed a cell-surface-marker-independent technology based on telomerase-specific, replication-selective oncolytic herp
