FDG-PET/CT of COVID-19 and Other Lung Infections

While not conventionally used as the first-line modality, [^(18)F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) – positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) can identify infection and inflammation both earlier and with higher sensitivity than anatomic imaging modalities [including chest X-ray (CXR), computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)]. The extent of inflammation and, conversely, recovery within the lungs, can be roughly quantified on FDG-PET/CT using maximum…

Enhancement of anticancer drug sensitivity in multidrug resistance cells overexpressing ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter ABCC10 by CP55, a synthetic derivative of 5-cyano-6-phenylpyrimidin

ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter C10 (ABCC10), also named multidrug resistance protein 7 (MRP7), is a member of ABC transporter superfamily and has been revealed to transport a wide range of chemotherapeutic agents including taxanes, epothilone B, Vinca alkaloids, and anthracyclines. In our previous study, a 5-cyano-6-phenylpyrimidin derivative CP55 was synthesized and found significantly reversal effect of multidrug resistance (MDR) mediated by ABCB1. In this study, we found CP55 also…
