Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) a guanithidine analogue, labelled with 123I and 131I, is used for imaging and therapy of neuroblastomas and various neural crest tumors like paragangliomas, pheochromocytomas, medullary cancer of thyroid and carcinoids since the past three to four decades. In this review article, we shall revisit MIBG as a radiopharmaceutical and its various applications in neural crest tumors.

The aim of this study was to study the significance of combining iodine-123-cardiac metaiodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy (I-MIBG scintigraphy) and iodine-123-ioflupane (I-ioflupane) dopamine transport...
Leukemia accounts for 30% of all childhood cancers and although the survival rate for pediatric leukemia has greatly improved, relapse is a major cause of treatment failure. Therefore, the development...
Very long-term follow-up data of non-ischemic idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy after beta-blocker therapy: recurrence of left ventricular dysfunction and predictive value of I-metaiodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy.
The management of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is well established. However, a subset of patients do not have recovery from or have recurrences of left ventricular (LV) dysfunction despite ...
Fungal infections are still a relevant challenge for clinicians involved in the cure of patients with cancer. We retrospectively reviewed charts of hospitalized patients with hematological malignancie...
Over the last decade, driven in part by the favorable adult experience and a crescendoing number of case series and retrospective reports in the pediatric surgical literature, minimally invasive surgi...
131I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (131I-MIBG) is a norepinephrine analog that concentrates in adrenergic tissue and therefore holds promise for cell-specific treatment of neuroblastoma. This is...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if I-131 Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) can shrink or slow the growth of the tumor(s) in patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumors...
131I-Metaiodobenzylguanidine (131I-MIBG) is one of the most effective therapies utilized for neuroblastoma patients with refractory or relapsed disease. In this pediatric phase 1 trial, 13...
This expanded access is the best available therapy/compassionate use designed to determine the palliative benefit and toxicity of 131I-MIBG in patients with relapsed/refractory neuroblasto...
High-Dose Iodine I 131 Metaiodobenzylguanidine, Topotecan, and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Young Patients With Relapsed Stage 4 Neuroblastoma or Primary Resistant High-Risk Neuroblastoma
RATIONALE: Radioisotope therapy, such as iodine I 131 metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG), releases radiation that kills tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as topotecan, work in diff...
Transfer from pediatric to adult care.
Registered nurses with graduate degrees in nursing who provide care to pediatric patients who are acutely or critically ill.
A neoplasm composed entirely of GRANULOSA CELLS, occurring mostly in the OVARY. In the adult form, it may contain some THECA CELLS. This tumor often produces ESTRADIOL and INHIBIN. The excess estrogen exposure can lead to other malignancies in women and PRECOCIOUS PUBERTY in girls. In rare cases, granulosa cell tumors have been identified in the TESTES.
A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1 isolated from mature T4 cells in patients with T-lymphoproliferation malignancies. It causes adult T-cell leukemia (LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, ACUTE, HTLV-I-ASSOCIATED), T-cell lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL), and is involved in mycosis fungoides, SEZARY SYNDROME and tropical spastic paraparesis (PARAPARESIS, TROPICAL SPASTIC).
A hematopoietic growth factor which promotes proliferation and maturation of neutrophil granulocytes. Clinically it is effective in decreasing the incidence of febrile neutropenia in patients with non-myeloid malignancies receiving myelosuppressive therapy or in reducing the duration of neutropenia and neutropenia-related clinical sequelae in patients with non-myeloid malignancies undergoing myeloblastive chemotherapy followed by BMT. It has also been used in AIDS patients with CMV retinitis being treated with GANCICLOVIR. (Gelman CR, Rumack BH & Hess AJ (eds): DRUGDEX(R) System.
