This phase I study was aimed at determining the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended dose (RD) for oral S-1 plus paclitaxel combination therapy in elderly patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Chemotherapy-naïve patients (age …


The Monocarboxylate transporter inhibitor Quercetin induces intracellular acidification in a mouse model of Glioblastoma Multiforme: in-vivo detection using magnetic resonance imaging

The response of tumor intracellular pH to a pharmacological challenge could help identify aggressive cancer. Chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) is an MRI contrast mechanism that is dependent on intracellular pH (pHi). pHi is important in …
