Educators debate ways to integrate MI curricula

June 01, 2006

Molecular imaging enthusiasts would undoubtedly like to encounter more residents like Dr. Jinha M. Park. In his last year of residency at the University of California, Los Angeles, Park completed his fellowship at Stanford, where he spent a year studying optical imaging modalities.

MI addresses conundrum of investigational drug trials

November 02, 2005

Molecular imaging tracers, agents, and probes have been cast in a new tactical assemblage designed to improve investigational drug evaluations.

Four strategies for creating MR imaging probes came to light at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine meeting in May. While differential accumulation of contrast agent may not occur, the agent appears only where it's turned on exclusively in target tissues, said Angelique Louie, Ph.D., an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at the University of California, Davis.

Two-step amplification technique delivers gene therapy to refractory prostate cancer

September 01, 2005

Under the supervision of Dr. Lily Wu, researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles created a prostate-specific two-step transcription amplification (TSTA) technique to deliver suicide gene therapy to hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC), an aggressive cancer that is stubbornly resistant to conventional therapy.

Focused ultrasound helps exogenous genes permeate targeted cells' outer membrane

September 01, 2005

National Institutes of Health researchers have successfully broken through the cell membrane, a barrier that has frustrated the efforts of many gene therapy strategies. Their study, published in the May 2005 issue of Radiology, found that high-intensity focused ultrasound significantly increases the number of exogenous genes that permeate the cells of subcutaneous squamous cell carcinomas. Ultrasonic waves were delivered in short pulses to dissipate heat and generate mechanical power that increased a tumor cell's permeability by therapeutic genes.
