Researchers at MD Anderson Show That Positron Emission Mammography (PEM) Helps Evaluate Early Response to Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy
Date:5/26/2010

post-lapatinib and correlated with tumor size and proliferation marker Ki67.

Results from this study showed significant early decrease in PUV as a functional response to targeted therapy suggesting that PEM can be used to evaluate early response to therapy.

"The high spatial resolution of PEM combined with functional quantification tools has the potential to assess tumor response early in the course of treatment," said Dr. Yang, lead author on the study.  "The ability to perform correlative studies that may help discover early on if targeted therapy is working or not will potentially save a patient from enduring the wrong type of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and enable a timely switch to the right one."

Future peer-reviewed publication of these results will appear once surgical outcomes for these patients have been acquired.
