Objective To evaluate the value of quantitatively analyzing tissue perfusion parameters of contrast-enhanced ultrasound in the evaluation of antiangiogenic therapeutics effect. Methods Kun-min mouse were subcutaneously implanted with H22 cells. Ten mouse were treated with thalidomide (200 mg/kg once daily) by intraperitoneal injection over 7 days,starting at day 2 post-implantation. Ten control mouse were treated with an equivalent volume of 0.5 CMC. Contrast-enhanced gray-scale ultrasound was performed on day 8 after bolus injection of SonoVue (0.1 ml) and the imaging was recorded on cine.Regions of interest within tumour were analyzed off-line with the software of SonoLiver to determine the area under the curve (AUC), maximum intensity (Imax), perfusion index (PI), mean transit time (mTT),time to peak (TTP) and quality of fit (QOF). Immediately after imaging, minces were euthanized and tumour tissue removed for fixation in a 10% formalin solution. Microvascular density (MVD) was measured after anti-CD34 staining. Results The body weight and the tumor volume of treated tumors were significant different (lower) than that of control tumors (P <0.05). Treatment with thalidomide resulted into a significant decrease in AUC,PI and Imax in comparison with control tumors ( P <0.05). There were no significant difference in mTT and TTP between control and treated tumours ( P >0.05). Treated tumours were associated with a significantly lower MVD as compared with control tumours( P <0.05). ConclusionsQuantitatively analyzing tissue perfusion parameters of contrast enhanced ultrasound shows promise for monitoring tumor response to antiangiogenic therapy.
