GRPr Theranostics: Current Status of Imaging and Therapy using GRPr Targeting Radiopharmaceuticals.

Nuklearmedizin 2022 Jun 3;61(3):247-261. Epub 2022 Jun 3.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Rostock University Medical Center, Rostock, Germany.

Addressing molecular targets, that are overexpressed by various tumor entities, using radiolabeled molecules for a combined diagnostic and therapeutic (theranostic) approach is of increasing interest in oncology. The gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPr), which is part of the bombesin family, has shown to be overexpressed in a variety of tumors, therefore, serving as a promising target for those theranostic applications. A large amount of differently radiolabeled bombesin derivatives addressing the GRPr have been evaluated in the preclinical as well as clinical setting showing fast blood clearance and urinary excretion with selective GRPr-binding.

Assessment of repeated reference measurements to inform the validity of optical breast spectroscopy.

Rev Sci Instrum 2022 Apr;93(4):044101

Genetic Epidemiology Group, School of Population and Global Health, The University of Western Australia, 35 Stirling Highway M431, Crawley, Western Australia 6009, Australia.

Mammographic breast density is a strong breast cancer risk factor, and its routine clinical measurement could potentially be used to identify women at higher risk of breast cancer and/or monitor primary prevention strategies. Previous reports of optical breast spectroscopy (OBS), a novel approach to measuring breast density, demonstrated that it is safe (no ionizing radiation), portable, low-cost, and does not require image interpretation but have been limited to small, single-center studies. Reference measurements taken on a phantom breast prior to and after each woman's OBS assessment are required for the calibration of the system transfer function as a part of processing participant data.

Eur J Breast Health 2022 Apr 1;18(2):199-202. Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Department of Radiology, Trakya University Faculty of Medicine, Edirne, Turkey.

Breast cancer is a rare entity in men, accounting for less than 1% of all breast cancers. Contralateral breast cancer diagnosed within 12 months of the prior breast cancer is known as bilateral synchronous breast cancer. Bilateral, synchronous male breast cancer is extremely rare and consequently there are few publications describing imaging findings of synchronous bilateral male breast cancer. Read More
