Irradiation Effects on Tumor Blood Flow and Tumor Vascular Permeability in a Rat Transplanted Glioma Model: A Quantitative Autoradiographic Study
Both radiotherapy and chemotherapy have been mainstays in the treatment of brain tumors. Because the delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs to a brain tumor is currently considered to be dependent upon tumor blood flow and/or tumor vascular permeability, it is important to have a clear understanding of irradiation effects on these transport processes. We report the preliminary results of local blood flow (F) and blood-to-tissue transfer constant (K) measurements with quantitative autoradiography (QAR) in a rat-transplanted glioma model.
