Advances in personalized medicine for lung cancer
Date:4/18/2012

describes the findings from an assessment of F-18 fluorothymidine (FLT), a tracer molecule used in PET scanning to measure tumor cell proliferation.

Dr Trigonis' group studied 14 patients with NSCLC who had a total of 31 dynamic FLT PET-CT scans before and within 1-2 weeks after the start of radical radiotherapy. They found that radiotherapy induced early significant decreases in tumor FLT uptake that varied across patients.

Their results indicate the potential of FLT PET to identify how well patients are responding to radiotherapy and guide therapeutic approaches, they say. More results will be presented at the meeting.
