  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Clinical Cancer Research. - 1078-0432 .- 1557-3265. ; 19:1, s. 183-193

    • PURPOSE: To evaluate whether, in patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), tumor uptake of [(11)C]erlotinib can be quantified and imaged using positron emission tomography and to assess whether the level of tracer uptake corresponds with the presence of activating tumor EGF receptor (EGFR) mutations.EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Ten patients with NSCLCs, five with an EGFR exon 19 deletion, and five without were scanned twice (test retest) on the same day with an interval of at least 4 hours. Each scanning procedure included a low-dose computed tomographic scan, a 10-minute dynamic [(15)O]H(2)O scan, and a 1-hour dynamic [(11)C]erlotinib scan. Data were analyzed using full tracer kinetic modeling. EGFR expression was evaluated using immunohistochemistry.RESULTS: The quantitative measure of [(11)C]erlotinib uptake, that is, volume of distribution (V(T)), was significantly higher in tumors with activating mutations, that is, all with exon 19 deletions (median V(T), 1.76; range, 1.25-2.93), than in those without activating mutations (median V(T), 1.06; range, 0.67-1.22) for both test and retest data (P = 0.014 and P = 0.009, respectively). Good reproducibility of [(11)C]erlotinib V(T) was seen (intraclass correlation coefficient = 0.88). Intergroup differences in [(11)C]erlotinib uptake were not correlated with EGFR expression levels, nor tumor blood flow.CONCLUSION: [(11)C]erlotinib V(T) was significantly higher in NSCLCs tumors with EGFR exon 19 deletions.

  • Association of plasma osteoprotegerin and adiponectin with arterial function, cardiac function and metabolism in asymptomatic type 2 diabetic men
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Cardiovascular Diabetology. - 1475-2840 .- 1475-2840. ; 10, s. 67-
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND:Osteoprotegerin (OPG), a soluble member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, is linked to cardiovascular disease. Negative associations exist between circulating OPG and cardiac function. The adipocytokine adiponectin (ADPN) is downregulated in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and coronary artery disease and shows an inverse correlation with insulin sensitivity and cardiovascular disease risk. We assessed the relationship of plasma OPG and ADPN and arterial function, cardiac function and myocardial glucose metabolism in T2DM.METHODS:We included 78 asymptomatic men with uncomplicated, well-controlled T2DM, without inducible ischemia, assessed by dobutamine-stress echocardiography, and 14 age-matched controls. Cardiac function was measured by magnetic resonance imaging, myocardial glucose metabolism (MMRglu) by 18F-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography. OPG and ADPN levels were measured in plasma.RESULTS:T2DM patients vs. controls showed lower aortic distensibility, left ventricular (LV) volumes, impaired LV diastolic function and MMRglu (all P < 0.05). In T2DM men vs. controls, OPG levels were higher (P = 0.02), whereas ADPN concentrations were decreased (P = 0.04). OPG correlated inversely with aortic distensibility, LV volumes and E/A ratio (diastolic function), and positively with LV mass/volume ratio (all P < 0.05). Regression analyses showed the associations with aortic distensibility and LV mass/volume ratio to be independent of age-, blood pressure- and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c). However, the associations with LV volumes and E/A ratio were dependent of these parameters. ADPN correlated positively with MMRglu (P < 0.05), which, in multiple regression analysis, was dependent of whole-body insulin sensitivity, HbA1c and waist.CONCLUSIONS:OPG was inversely associated with aortic distensibility, LV volumes and LV diastolic function, while ADPN was positively associated with MMRglu. These findings indicate that in asymptomatic men with uncomplicated T2DM, OPG and ADPN may be markers of underlying mechanisms linking the diabetic state to cardiac abnormalities.TRIAL REGISTRATION:Current Controlled Trials ISRCTN53177482.

    • In this study, the performance of various methods for generating quantitative parametric images of dynamic (11)C-phenytoin PET studies was evaluated. Methods: Double-baseline 60-min dynamic (11)C-phenytoin PET studies, including online arterial sampling, were acquired for 6 healthy subjects. Parametric images were generated using Logan plot analysis, a basis function method, and spectral analysis. Parametric distribution volume (VT) and influx rate (K1) were compared with those obtained from nonlinear regression analysis of time-activity curves. In addition, global and regional test-retest (TRT) variability was determined for parametric K1 and VT values. Results: Biases in VT observed with all parametric methods were less than 5%. For K1, spectral analysis showed a negative bias of 16%. The mean TRT variabilities of VT and K1 were less than 10% for all methods. Shortening the scan duration to 45 min provided similar VT and K1 with comparable TRT performance compared with 60-min data. Conclusion: Among the various parametric methods tested, the basis function method provided parametric VT and K1 values with the least bias compared with nonlinear regression data and showed TRT variabilities lower than 5%, also for smaller volume-of-interest sizes (i.e., higher noise levels) and shorter scan duration.

  • Liver fat content in type 2 diabetes : relationship with hepatic perfusion and substrate metabolism.
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Diabetes. - 0012-1797 .- 1939-327X. ; 59:11, s. 2747-2754

    • OBJECTIVE:Hepatic steatosis is common in type 2 diabetes. It is causally linked to the features of the metabolic syndrome, liver cirrhosis, and cardiovascular disease. Experimental data have indicated that increased liver fat may impair hepatic perfusion and metabolism. The aim of the current study was to assess hepatic parenchymal perfusion, together with glucose and fatty acid metabolism, in relation to hepatic triglyceride content.RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS:Fifty-nine men with well controlled type 2 diabetes and 18 age-matched healthy normoglycemic men were studied using positron emission tomography to assess hepatic tissue perfusion, insulin-stimulated glucose, and fasting fatty acid metabolism, respectively, in relation to hepatic triglyceride content, quantified by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Patients were divided into two groups with hepatic triglyceride content below (type 2 diabetes-low) or above (type 2 diabetes-high) the median of 8.6%.RESULTS:Type 2 diabetes-high patients had the highest BMI and A1C and lowest whole-body insulin sensitivity (ANOVA, all P < 0.001). Compared with control subjects and type 2 diabetes-low patients, type 2 diabetes-high patients had the lowest hepatic parenchymal perfusion (P = 0.004) and insulin-stimulated hepatic glucose uptake (P = 0.013). The observed decrease in hepatic fatty acid influx rate constant, however, only reached borderline significance (P = 0.088). In type 2 diabetic patients, hepatic parenchymal perfusion (r = -0.360, P = 0.007) and hepatic fatty acid influx rate constant (r = -0.407, P = 0.007) correlated inversely with hepatic triglyceride content. In a pooled analysis, hepatic fat correlated with hepatic glucose uptake (r = -0.329, P = 0.004).CONCLUSIONS:In conclusion, type 2 diabetic patients with increased hepatic triglyceride content showed decreased hepatic parenchymal perfusion and hepatic insulin mediated glucose uptake, suggesting a potential modulating effect of hepatic fat on hepatic physiology.

  • Carriers of the hypertrophic cardiomyopathy MYBPC3 mutation are characterized by reduced myocardial efficiency in the absence of hypertrophy and microvascular dysfunction
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: European Journal of Heart Failure. - 1388-9842 .- 1879-0844. ; 13:12, s. 1283-1289

    • AIMS:Next to left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is characterized by microvascular dysfunction and reduced myocardial external efficiency (MEE). Insights into the presence of these abnormalities as early markers of disease are of clinical importance in risk stratification, and development of therapeutic approaches. Therefore, the aim was to investigate myocardial perfusion and energetics in genotype-positive, phenotype-negative HCM subjects (carriers).METHODS AND RESULTS:Fifteen carriers of an MYBPC3 mutation underwent [15O]water positron emission tomography (PET) to assess myocardial blood flow (MBF). [11C]acetate PET was performed to obtain myocardial oxygen consumption (MVO2). By use of cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging, LV volumes and mass were defined to calculate MEE, i.e. the ratio between external work and MVO2. Eleven healthy, genotype-negative, family relatives underwent similar scanning protocols to serve as a control group. Left ventricular mass was comparable between carriers and controls (93 ± 25 vs. 99 ± 21 g, P= 0.85), as was MBF at rest (1.19 ± 0.34 vs. 1.18 ± 0.32 mL min−1 g−1, P= 0.92), and during hyperaemia (3.87 ± 0.75 vs. 3.96 ± 0.86 mL min−1 g−1, P= 0.77). Myocardial oxygen consumption averaged 0.137 ± 0.057 mL min−1 g−1 in carriers and was not significantly different from controls (0.125 ± 0.043 mL min−1 g−1, P= 0.29). Cardiac work, however, was slightly reduced in carriers (7398 ± 1384 vs. 9139 ± 2484 mmHg mL in controls, P= 0.08). As a consequence, MEE was significantly decreased in carriers (27 ± 10 vs. 36 ± 8% in controls, P= 0.02).CONCLUSION:Carriers display reduced myocardial work generation in relation to oxygen consumption, in the absence of hypertrophy and flow abnormalities. Hence, impaired myocardial energetics may constitute a primary component of HCM pathogenesis.

  • Effects of alcohol septal ablation on coronary microvascular function and myocardial energetics in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: American Journal of Physiology. Heart and Circulatory Physiology. - 0363-6135 .- 1522-1539. ; 301:1, s. H129-H137
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This study investigated the effects of alcohol septal ablation (ASA) on microcirculatory function and myocardial energetics in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction. In 15 HCM patients who underwent ASA, echocardiography was performed before and 6 mo after the procedure to assess the LVOT gradient (LVOTG). Additionally, [15O]water PET was performed to obtain resting myocardial blood flow (MBF) and coronary vasodilator reserve (CVR). Changes in LV mass (LVM) and volumes were assessed by cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging. Myocardial oxygen consumption (MVVo2) was evaluated by [11C]acetate PET in a subset of seven patients to calculate myocardial external efficiency (MEE). After ASA, peak LVOTG decreased from 41 ± 32 to 23 ± 19 mmHg (P = 0.04), as well as LVM (215 ± 74 to 169 ± 63 g; P < 0.001). MBF remained unchanged (0.94 ± 0.23 to 0.98 ± 0.15 ml·min−1·g−1; P = 0.45), whereas CVR increased (2.55 ± 1.23 to 3.05 ± 1.24; P = 0.05). Preoperatively, the endo-to-epicardial MBF ratio was lower during hyperemia compared with rest (0.80 ± 0.18 vs. 1.18 ± 0.15; P < 0.001). After ASA, the endo-to-epicardial hyperemic (h)MBF ratio increased to 1.03 ± 0.26 (P = 0.02). ΔCVR was correlated to ΔLVOTG (r = −0.82; P < 0.001) and ΔLVM (r = −0.54; P = 0.04). MEE increased from 15 ± 6 to 20 ± 9% (P = 0.04). Coronary microvascular dysfunction in obstructive HCM is at least in part reversible by relief of LVOT obstruction. After ASA, hMBF and CVR increased predominantly in the subendocardium. The improvement in CVR was closely correlated to the absolute reduction in peak LVOTG, suggesting a pronounced effect of LV loading conditions on microvascular function of the subendocardium. Furthermore, ASA has favorable effects on myocardial energetics.

  • Right ventricular energetics in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and the effect of alcohol septal ablation
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Journal of Cardiac Failure. - 1071-9164 .- 1532-8414. ; 17:10, s. 827-831
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND:Diastolic dysfunction in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is accompanied by augmented left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic pressure, above all in the presence of LV outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction. Increased back-pressure may augment right ventricular (RV) afterload and induce an oxidative metabolic imbalance between the 2 ventricles. The aim was to study right-to-left ventricular oxidative metabolism in HCM and the effects of alcohol septal ablation (ASA).METHODS AND RESULTS:Twenty-one HCM patients were enrolled. Eleven healthy subjects served as a control group. Subjects underwent 2-dimensional echocardiography to assess LVOT gradient, left atrial size, and diastolic function. [11C]Acetate positron-emission tomography (PET) was performed to determine RVk2 and LVk2, as a noninvasive index of oxidative metabolism. Seven HCM patients with LVOT obstruction, scheduled to undergo ASA, were also studied 6 months after the procedure. RVk2 was higher in HCM patients than i control subjects (0.081 ± 0.021 min−1 vs. 0.061 ± 0.017 min−1; P = .05), whereas LVk2 was similar between groups. Consequently, RVk2/LVk2 was increased in the patients (0.85 ± 0.19 vs 0.59 ± 0.13; P = .004). In patients with obstructive HCM, ASA reduced RVk2 (0.085 ± 0.021 min−1 to 0.072 ± 0.022 min−1; P = .001). Inasmuch as LVk2 remained unaffected by the procedure, RVk2/LVk2 was decreased after ASA (0.66 ± 0.18; P = .03). The absolute change in LVOT gradient was related to the absolute change in RVk2 (r = 0.77; P = .044).CONCLUSIONS:In HCM patients, RV oxygen consumption is increased in relation to the LV. ASA reduces RV oxygen consumption in HCM patients with LVOT obstruction, suggesting that increased LV loading conditions and diastolic dysfunction play a predominant role in augmenting RV workload in these patients.

  • (R)-[(11)C]PK11195 brain uptake as a biomarker of inflammation and antiepileptic drug resistance : Evaluation in a rat epilepsy model
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Neuropharmacology. - 0028-3908 .- 1873-7064. ; 85, s. 104-112
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Neuroinflammation has been suggested as a key determinant of the intrinsic severity of epilepsy. Glial cell activation and associated inflammatory signaling can influence seizure thresholds as well as the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of antiepileptic drugs. Based on these data, we hypothesized that molecular imaging of microglia activation might serve as a tool to predict drug refractoriness of epilepsy. Brain uptake of (R)-[(11)C]PK11195, a ligand of the translocator protein 18 kDa and molecular marker of microglia activation, was studied in a chronic model of temporal lobe epilepsy in rats with selection of phenobarbital responders and non-responders. In rats with drug-sensitive epilepsy, (R)-[(11)C]PK11195 brain uptake values were comparable to those in non-epileptic controls. Analysis in non-responders revealed enhanced brain uptake of up to 39% in different brain regions. The difference might be related to the fact that non-responders exhibited higher baseline seizure frequencies than responders indicating a more pronounced intrinsic disease severity. In hippocampal sections, ED1 immunostaining argued against a general difference in microglia activation between both groups. Our data suggest that TSPO PET imaging might serve as a biomarker for drug resistance in temporal lobe epilepsy. However, it needs to be considered that our findings indicate that the TSPO PET data might merely reflect seizure frequency. Future experimental and clinical studies should further evaluate the validity of TSPO PET data to predict the response to phenobarbital and other antiepileptic drugs in longitudinal studies with scanning before drug exposure and with a focus on the early phase following an epileptogenic brain insult.

  • Quantitative Assessment of Myocardial Perfusion in the Detection of Significant Coronary Artery Disease Cutoff Values and Diagnostic Accuracy of Quantitative [O-15]H2O PET Imaging
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Journal of the American College of Cardiology. - 0735-1097 .- 1558-3597. ; 64:14, s. 1464-1475
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND Recent studies have demonstrated improved diagnostic accuracy for detecting coronary artery disease (CAD) when myocardial blood flow (MBF) is quantified in absolute terms, but there are no uniformly accepted cutoff values for hemodynamically significant CAD. OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to determine cutoff values for absolute MBF and to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of quantitative [O-15]H2O positron emission tomography (PET). METHODS A total of 330 patients underwent both quantitative [O-15]H2O PET imaging and invasive coronary angiography in conjunction with fractional flow reserve measurements. A stenosis >90% and/or fractional flow reserve <= 0.80 was considered obstructive; a stenosis <30% and/or fractional flow reserve >0.80 was nonobstructive. RESULTS Hemodynamically significant CAD was diagnosed in 116 (41%) of 281 patients who fulfilled study criteria for CAD. Resting perfusion was 1.00 +/- 0.25 and 0.92 +/- 0.23 ml/min/g in regions supplied by nonstenotic and significantly stenosed vessels, respectively (p < 0.001). During stress, perfusion increased to 3.26 +/- 1.04 ml/min/g and 1.73 +/- 0.67 ml/min/g, respectively (p < 0.001). The optimal cutoff values were 2.3 and 2.5 for hyperemic MBF and myocardial flow reserve, respectively. For MBF, these cutoff values showed a sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy for detecting significant CAD of 89%, 84%, and 86%, respectively, at a per-patient level and 87%, 85%, and 85% at a per-vessel level. The corresponding myocardial flow reserve values were 86%, 72%, and 78% (per patient) and 80%, 82%, and 81% (per vessel). Age and sex significantly affected diagnostic accuracy of quantitative PET. CONCLUSIONS Quantitative MBF measurements with the use of [O-15]H2O PET provided high diagnostic performance, but both sex and age should be taken into account.

  • [11C]Flumazenil brain uptake is influenced by the blood-brain barrier efflux transporter P-glycoprotein.
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: EJNMMI Research. - 2191-219X. ; 2, s. 12-
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: [11C]Flumazenil and positron emission tomography (PET) are used clinically to assess gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-ergic function and to localize epileptic foci prior to resective surgery. Enhanced P-glycoprotein (P-gp) activity has been reported in epilepsy and this may confound interpretation of clinical scans if [11C]flumazenil is a P-gp substrate. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether [11C]flumazenil is a P-gp substrate.METHODS: [11C]Flumazenil PET scans were performed in wild type (WT) (n = 9) and Mdr1a/1b, (the genes that encode for P-gp) double knockout (dKO) (n = 10) mice, and in naive rats (n = 10). In parallel to PET scanning, [11C]flumazenil plasma concentrations were measured in rats. For 6 of the WT and 6 of the dKO mice a second, [11C]flumazenil scan was acquired after administration of the P-gp inhibitor tariquidar. Cerebral [11C]flumazenil concentrations in WT and Mdr1a/1b dKO mice were compared (genetic disruption model). Furthermore, pre and post P-gp-blocking cerebral [11C]flumazenil concentrations were compared in all animals (pharmacological inhibition model).RESULTS: Mdr1a/1b dKO mice had approximately 70% higher [11C]flumazenil uptake in the brain than WT mice. After administration of tariquidar, cerebral [11C]flumazenil uptake in WT mice increased by about 80% in WT mice, while it remained the same in Mdr1a/1b dKO mice. In rats, cerebral [11C]flumazenil uptake increased by about 60% after tariquidar administration. Tariquidar had only a small effect on plasma clearance of flumazenil.CONCLUSIONS: The present study showed that [11C]flumazenil is a P-gp substrate in rodents. Consequently, altered cerebral [11C]flumazenil uptake, as observed in epilepsy, may not reflect solely GABAA receptor density changes but also changes in P-gp activity.
