Summary of "(106)Ruthenium brachytherapy for ciliary recurrence with supraciliary effusion in retinoblastoma."

Purpose: A 2-year-old boy with syndromic bilateral retinoblastoma resulting from a (del(13)(q12.3q14.3)) developed a recurrent tumor measuring 2.3X2.3mm at the ora serrata 15 months following last treatment. Methods: Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) revealed a mass invading the ciliary body 6.6 mm in diameter associated with a localized supraciliary effusion. Results: Complete tumor regression was achieved 1 month after brachytherapy with a (106)Ruthenium plaque. There was no recurrence at 16 months. Conclusion: This is the first clinical demonstration of supraciliary effusion in recurrent retinoblastoma. Brachytherapy appears to be effective in the treatment of this type of recurrence.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Unstable isotopes of ruthenium that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Ru atoms with atomic weights 93-95, 97, 103, and 105-108 are radioactive ruthenium isotopes.

Inorganic compounds that contain ruthenium as an integral part of the molecule.

An inorganic dye used in microscopy for differential staining and as a diagnostic reagent. In research this compound is used to study changes in cytoplasmic concentrations of calcium. Ruthenium red inhibits calcium transport through membrane channels.

Product of the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor gene. It is a nuclear phosphoprotein hypothesized to normally act as an inhibitor of cell proliferation. Rb protein is absent in retinoblastoma cell lines. It also has been shown to form complexes with the adenovirus E1A protein, the SV40 T antigen, and the human papilloma virus E7 protein.

A ubiquitously expressed regulatory protein that contains a retinoblastoma protein binding domain and an AT-rich interactive domain. The protein may play a role in recruiting HISTONE DEACETYLASES to the site of RETINOBLASTOMA PROTEIN-containing transcriptional repressor complexes.
