To date, the precise role of the human microbiome in health and disease states remains largely
undefined. Complex and selective crosstalk systems between the microbiome and mammalian
cells are also not yet reported. ...

Developing nanoparticulate delivery systems
that will allow easy movement and localization
of a drug to the target tissue and provide more
controlled release of the drug in vivo is a challenge in
nanomedicine. The aim ...

The role of the human microbiome on cancer progression remains unclear. Therefore, in
this study, we investigated the influence of some quorum sensing peptides, produced by diverse
commensal or pathogenic bacteria, on ...

In a previous paper, an overview of the use of PET/CT in
the management of tuberculosis (TB) was provided and the
potential role of nitroimidazole imaging in LTBI was
considered . During latent TB, dormant bacilli ...

These recommendations are intended to serve an important and relevant role in advising referring physicians on the appropriate use
of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) and non-18F-FDG positron emission tomography/computed ...
Buscombe, J.R. (John Richard)(British Institute of Radiology, 2015)
Positron emission tomography (PET) has become widely established in oncology. Subsequently, a whole new “toolbox” of
tracers have become available to look at different aspects of cancer cell function and dysfunction, ...
Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), a type II glycoprotein, is highly
expressed in almost all prostate cancers. By playing such a universal role in the disease,
PSMA provides a target for diagnostic imaging of ...
