ABSTRACT

Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is the most commonly used method for non-surgical treatment of liver cancer, and it is usually used as an adjuvant therapy in patients who have not developed intrahepatic metastases after surgical resection. Postoperative adjuvant TACE therapy may provide a prognostic benefit in liver cancer patients with high recurrence risk. This article reviews the research progress of adjuvant TACE therapy for liver cancer after radical resection.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: It was reported lately that to obtain consistent liver T1rho measurement, at 3T MRI using six spin-lock times (SLTs), is feasible. In this study, the feasibility of using three or two SLT points to measure liver T1rho relaxation time was explored. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventeen healthy volunteers underwent 36 examinations. Three representative axial slices were selected to cut through the upper, middle, and lower liver. A rotary echo spin-lock pulse was implemented in a 2D fast field echo sequence. Spin-lock frequency was 500 Hz and the spin-lock times of 1, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 milliseconds (ms) were used for T1rho mapping. T1rho maps were constructed by using all 6 SLT points, three SLT points of 1, 20, and 50 ms, or two SLTs of 1 and 50 ms, respectively. Intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC) and Bland and Altman plot were used to assess the measurement agreement. RESULTS: Two examinations were excluded, due to motion artifact at the SLT of 50 ms. With the remaining 34 examinations, the ICC for 6-SLT vs. 3-SLT T1rho measurements was 0.922, while the ICC for 6-SLT vs. 2-SLT T1rho measurement was 0.756. The Bland and Altman analysis showed a mean difference of 0.19 (95% limits of agreement: -1.34, 1.73) for 6-SLT vs. 3-SLT T1rho measurement, and the mean difference of 0.89 (95% limits of agreement: -1.67, 3.45) for 6-SLT vs. 2-SLT T1rho measurement. The scan re-scan reproducibility ICC (n = 11 subjects) was 0.755, 0.727, and 0.528 for 6-SLT measurement, 3-SLT measurement, and 2-SLT measurement, respectively. CONCLUSION: Adopting 3 SLTs of 1, 20, and 50 ms can be an acceptable alternative for the liver T1rho measurement, while 2 SLTs of 1 and 50 ms do not provide reliable measurement.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>BACKGROUND</b>Superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) particles have shown much promise as a means to visualize labeled cells using molecular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Micrometer-sized superparamagnetic iron oxide (MPIO) particles and nanometer-sized ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) are two kinds of SPIO widely used for monitoring stem cells migration. Here we compare the efficiency of two kinds of SPIO during the use of stem cells to treat acute myocardial infarction (AMI).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>An AMI model in swine was created by 60 minutes of balloon occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. Two kinds of SPIO particles were used to track after intracoronary delivered 10(7) magnetically labeled mesenchymal stem cells (MR-MSCs). The distribution and migration of the MR-MSCs were assessed with the use of 3.0T MR scanner and then the results were confirmed by histological examination.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>MR-MSCs appeared as a local hypointense signal on T₂*-weighted MRI and there was a gradual loss of the signal intensity after intracoronary transplantation. All of the hypointense signals in the USPIO-labeled group were found on T₂*-weighted MRI, contrast to noise ratio (CNR) decreased in the MPIO-labeled group (16.07 ± 5.85 vs. 10.96 ± 1.34) and USPIO-labeled group (11.72 ± 1.27 vs. 10.03 ± 0.96) from 4 to 8 weeks after transplantation. However, the hypointense signals were not detected in MPIO-labeled group in two animals. MRI and the results were verified by histological examination.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>We demonstrated that two kinds of SPIO particles in vitro have similar labeling efficiency and viability. USPIO is more suitable for labeling stem cells when they are transplanted via a coronary route.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the feasibility of Single Fe(2)O(3)-PLL labeled mouse spleen-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) detection by 7.0T MR system.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Mononuclear cells (MNCs) were isolated from mouse spleen by density gradient centrifugation and EPCs were obtained by the different adherence of cells.Immunocytochemistry and fluorescent staining were performed to identify EPCs. The EPCs were labeled with Fe(2)O(3)-PLL and the intracellular iron was identified with prussian blue staining. MTT assay was assessed to evaluate proliferation of Fe(2)O(3)-PLL labeled EPCs. The cells underwent MR imaging with different sequences.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Cultured in vitro, mouse spleen-derived MNCs resulted in EC-like morphology. These cells expressed EPCs-specific antigens, such as CD31, CD34 and vWF, and had the ability to incorporate ac-LDL and bind UEA-1. Between Fe(2)O(3)-PLL labeled EPCs and unlabeled cells, MTT value of light absorption had no statistical significant difference (day4 t = 2.81, day5 t = -1.87, day6 t = -0.298, day7 t = -0.115, all P > 0.05). The signal void induced by labeled single cell is 20.2 pixels in MSME sequence, and 20.2 pixels in 3D-FLASH sequence (t = 15.2, P < 0.05). Single cell could be detected by 7.0 T MR system.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>MNCs isolated from mouse spleen can differentiate into endothelial cells in vitro and have the specific property of stem cells. The mouse spleen-derived EPCs can be labeled with Fe(2)O(3)-PLL efficiently. The labeled EPCs can be imaged as dispersed single cells.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>BACKGROUND</b>Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) transplantation provides a new approach for myocardial repair. However, many important fundamental questions about MSCs transplantation remain unanswered. There is an urgent need to identify MSCs from the beating heart and analyze the efficacy of this new approach. This study aimed to localize the magnetically labeled MSCs (MR-MSCs) and monitor the restorative effects of MR-MSCs with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was created in swine by a balloon occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. Cells were delivered via intracoronary infusion after myocardial infarction. Infarct size change and cardiac function were assessed with 3.0T MR scanner. The results were then confirmed by histological and western blot analysis. All statistical procedures were performed with Systat (SPSS version 12.01).</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>A total of 26 swine were divided into four groups (sham-operated group, n=6; AMI group with PBS transplantation, n=6; labeled MSCs group, n=7; unlabeled MSCs group, n=7). MSCs, MR-MSCs (10(7) cells) or PBS were delivered by intracoronary injection after MI and serial cardiac MR imaging studies were performed at 0, 4 and 8 weeks after transplantation. MR imaging demonstrated MI size decreased after MSCs transplantation in labeled and unlabeled groups, however, increases were seen in the AMI group at 8 weeks after MI. The left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) was slightly increased in the AMI group ((41.87+/-2.45)% vs (39.04+/-2.80)%, P>0.05), but significantly improved in the MR-MSCs group ((56.85+/-1.29)% vs (40.67+/-2.00)%, P<0.05) and unlabeled group ((55.38+/-1.07)% vs (41.78+/-2.08)%, P<0.05) at 8 weeks after treatment. MR-MSCs were further confirmed by Prussian blue and immunofluorescent staining. Western blot analysis demonstrated that there was an increased expression of cardiomyocyte markers such as myosin heavy chain and troponin T in the MSCs treatment groups and the ratio of matrix metalloproteinase 2 to tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 1 decreased in the labeled group and unlabeled group compared with the AMI group and sham-operated group.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Transplanted MR-MSCs can regenerate new myocardium and prevent remolding in an MI model at 2-month follow-up and represent a preferred method to better understand the mechanisms of stem cell therapy in future clinical studies.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the feasibility of in vitro magnetic resonance imaging on Fe2O3-arginine labeled heNOS gene modified endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Fe2O3 was incubated with arginine to form Fe2O3-arginine complex. Rabbit peripheral blood mononuclear cells (MNCs) were isolated and EPCs were isolated by adherence method, expanded and modified with heNOS gene using Lipofectamine 2000. After 48 hours, genetically modified EPCs were incubated with Fe2O3-arginine for 24 hours. Intracellular iron was detected by Prussian blue stain. The expression of heNOS gene was detected by Western blot. MTT assay was used to evaluate cell survival and proliferation of Fe2O3-arginine labeled heNOS-EPCs. Flow cytometry was used to measure cell apoptosis. The cells underwent in vitro MR imaging with various sequences.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Iron-containing intracytoplasmatic vesicles could be clearly observed with Prussian blue staining, and the labeling rate of labeled heNOS-EPCs were similar to that of labeled EPCs (around 100%). Survival and apoptosis rates obtained by MTT and flow cytometry analysis were similar among labeled heNOS-EPCs, labeled EPCs and unlabeled EPCs with Fe2O3-arginine. The signal intensity on MRI was equally decreased in labeled heNOS-EPCs and labeled EPCs compared with that in unlabeled cells. The percentage change in signal intensity (DeltaSI) was most significant on T2*WI and DeltaSI was significantly lower in cells labeled for 7 days than that labeled for 1 days.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>The heNOS gene can be successfully transfected into rabbit peripheral blood EPCs using Lipofectamine2000. The heNOS-EPCs can be labeled with Fe2O3-arginine without significant change in viability and proliferation capacity. The labeled heNOS-EPCs can be imaged with standard 1.5 T MR equipment. The degree of MR signal intensity may indirectly reflect the cell count, growth and division status.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To evaluate the therapeutic effects of magnetically labeled mononuclear stem cells (MR-MNC) and mesenchymal stem cells (MR-MSC) transplantation in a swine acute myocardial infarction (AMI) model by MR imaging.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>AMI model was established in swines by balloon occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery, 10(7) autologous MR-MSC (n = 7), MR-MNC (n = 6) or PBS (n = 6) were delivered via intracoronary infusion within 1 week after AMI [(4.8 +/- 1.3) days]. Changes of infarct size and cardiac function were assessed with the use of 3.0T MR scanner before AMI, at 1 and 8 weeks post AMI.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Magnetically labeled stem cells could be identified in the region of AMI by cardiac MR imaging. Eight weeks post transplantation, infarct size was significantly reduced in MR-MSC transplantation group (8.5% +/- 0.5% vs. 24.7% +/- 3.1%, P < 0.05) and in MR-MNC transplantation (12.3% +/- 1.5% vs. 26.1% +/- 1.5%, P < 0.05) while infarct size remained unchanged in PBS group (P > 0.05) compared to values at 1 week post AMI, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) was also significantly higher in MR-MSC transplantation group (56.9% +/- 1.3% vs. 40.7% +/- 2.0%, P < 0.05) and MR-MNC transplantation group (52.8% +/- 1.4% vs. 41.9% +/- 3.3%, P < 0.05) compared to LVEF at 1 week post AMI. LVEF increase was more significant in swines received MR-MSC transplantation than MR-MNC transplantation (16.2% +/- 1.2% vs. 10.9% +/- 3.0%, P < 0.05). Prussian blue staining identified stem cells in corresponding myocardial regions with as by MRI. Western blot analysis demonstrated that cardiac expressions of myosin heavy chain (MHC) in MR-MSC group (100.3 +/- 5.5) and in MR-MNCs group (95.5 +/- 4.2) were significantly higher than that in PBS group (75.7 +/- 5.7, P < 0.05), myocardial troponin T (cTNT) expression in MR-MSC group (124.0 +/- 5.8) and MR-MNC group (118.4 +/- 4.4) were also significantly higher than in PBS group (93.3 +/- 3.9, P < 0.05) while MMP2/TIMP1 ratios in MR-MSC group (0.6 +/- 0.1) and MR-MNC group (0.6 +/- 0.1) were significantly lower than that in PBS group (4.2 +/- 0.2, P < 0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>Magnetically labeled MR-MSC and MR-MNC homed to heart post myocardial infarction and reduced infarct size, improved cardiac function. MR-MSC is superior to MR-MNC on improving cardiac function.</p>

ABSTRACT

Interventional techniques not only provide opportunity of treatment for many diseases,but also alter the traditional therapeutic pattern.With the new century of wide application of biological therapies, interventional technique also shows extensive roles.The current biological therapy,including gene therapy, cell transplantation therapy,immunobiologic molecule therapy containing cell factors,tumor antibody or vaccine,recombined proteins,radioactive-particles and targeting materials therapy,can be locally administrated by interventional techniques.The combination of targeting biological therapies and high-targeted interventional technique holds advantages of minimal invasion,accurate delivery,vigorous local effect,and less systemic adverse reactions.Authors believe that the biological therapy may arise a great opportunity for interventional radiology,therefore interventional colleagues should grasp firmly and promptly for the development and extension in this field.(J Intervent Radiol,2007,16:73-74)
