Topic:   A new PET tumor detection imaging strategy using 64Cu labeled antibody for VEGF


Abstract:  
Cancer is one of the leading causes of deaths worldwide. One of the main obstacles for early detection and treatment of cancer is the lack of sensitive and tumor-specific probes. Currently, 18F- Fluoroeoxyglucose (18FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) imaging is one of the most common and powerful techniques in clinical use to detect and stage cancer. However, the result is only satisfactory on limited tumor types and can be associated confusing false-positive findings. Angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels, is a common prerequisite for the development of a broad range of tumors and cancer metastases. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is the most dominant pro-angiogenic factor and it’s the only growth factor that has been found to express throughout the whole tumor life cycle for a wide range of cancer types including metastasis. In this talk, the speaker will go through the journey of the discovery of using radiolabeled anti-VEGF antibody as a new PET tumor detection probe.
