KRAS mutations represent the main cause of resistance to anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). We evaluated whether highly sensitive methods for KRAS investigation improve the accuracy of predictions of anti-EGFR MoAbs efficacy.

Malignant carcinoid tumors express high numbers of somatostatin receptors. Radiation therapy using labeled somatostatin analogs is a novel treatment modality for these tumors. We have analyzed the biokinetics and therapeutic effect of radiolabeled somatostatin analog on a human midgut carcinoid

Adenosine may play a role in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia, since it modulates the release of several neurotransmitters such as glutamate, dopamine, serotonin and acetylcholine, decreases neuronal activity by pos-synaptic hyperpolarization and inhibits dopaminergic activity. Adenosine deaminase participates in purine

Parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) is synthesized by osteoblasts, although its local role in bone is not completely understood. The C-terminal (107-111) region of PTHrP seems to be a potent inhibitor of osteoblastic bone resorption. We studied the effect of this

Phaeochromocytomas (PHEO) and paragangliomas are rare catecholamine-producing tumours. Although 10-30% of these tumours metastasise, histopathological criteria to discriminate malignant from benign tumours have not been established; therefore, reliable histopathological markers predicting metastasis are urgently required. A total of 163 tumours

Cognitive impairment (CI) with mixed vascular and neurodegenerative pathologies after stroke is common. The role of amyloid pathology in post-stroke CI is unclear. We hypothesize that amyloid deposition, measured with Flutemetamol (18F-Flut) positron emission tomography (PET), is common in seven-year

Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2, PTGS2) plays an important role in colorectal carcinogenesis. COX-2 overexpression in colorectal cancer is inversely associated with microsatellite instability (MSI) and the CpG island methylator phenotype (CIMP). Evidence suggests that MSI/CIMP+ colorectal cancer may arise through the serrated

68Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen PET/CT (68Ga-PSMA PET/CT) offers unprecedented accuracy for staging of primary, persistent, or recurrent prostate cancer. Thus, we hypothesized that 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT before radiotherapy significantly affects the radiotherapeutic approach in comparison to the current standard, a CT-based approach.
