    ..The quality of PET images and the decrease of uptake in 6-OHDA and MPTP lesions show that (11)C-(+)DTBZ is an adequate radiotracer for the study of dopaminergic innervation in these animal models. ..

    ..This might either be due to inherent technical limitations of PET, decrease in VMAT2 expression in the tumors due to unknown reasons, or other biological limiting facts. ..

    ..It delivers an effective dose slightly higher than the dose produced by (99m)Tc-pertechnetate but much lower than that produced by radioiodine in the form of (131)INa, (123)INa, or (124)INa. ..

    ..In addition, tumors from lapatinib-treated mice showed a dramatic reduction in angiogenesis (P < 0.0001). Overall, these data suggest that lapatinib may be a clinically useful agent for the treatment of lung cancer. ..
