Recent approaches to drug discoveries focus upon the better understanding of the biochemical pathways that govern the pathogenesis of diseases at a molecular level. Previous studies have shown that malignant cells of many cancers expressed on their surface in high density, a genomic product VPAC1 combined for vasoactive intestinal and pituitary adenylate cyclase activating peptide. These finger prints, the receptors, encode G protein, involved in cell proliferation, differentiation and cell survival. On benign or normal cells, only a few VPAC1 receptors are present. We therefore hypothesized that targeting VPAC1 using a specific biomolecule labeled with a positron emitting radionuclide will permit us not only to image early cancers of the breast (BC), prostate (PC) and lung (LC), but will also distinguish benign lesions from malignant masses. Early data shall be presented. To register click here.
