Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma often die from intrahepatic disease since current treatment options are generally limited. Local treatment using holmium radioembolization could offe...
The main objective is to establish the feasibility of 166-Holmium microspheres for intratumoral injections in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) of the tongue. Participants will receive ...
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies how well perflutren protein-type A microspheres and contrast-enhanced ultrasound work in improving response to radioembolization therapy in pat...
This is a phase I dose escalation study (3+3 design) with a dose expansion arm (12 patients) designed to evaluate safety of the combination of Tas-102 and radioembolization using Yttrium-9...
This pilot clinical trial studies how well contrast-enhanced ultrasound in diagnosing patients with liver cancer who are undergoing Yttrium-90 radioembolization. Contrast-enhanced ultrasou...
There are two different types of Y90 Microspheres, glass and resin, in the market for Y90 radioembolization (Y90-RE). This study aimed to investigate the dose of radiation delivered through glass vs. ...
Limited treatment options exist for patients with locoregional recurrences of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). In the palliative setting, a single session, minimally invasive, and relati...
To address the feasibility of infusion of yttrium-90 (90Y) glass microspheres directly through the right inferior phrenic artery (RIPA).
Due to their good biocompatibility, biodegradability and special shapes, porous poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) microspheres show a wide application in the field of tissue engineering. Herein we ...
In radioembolic therapy (RET) of hepatic malignancies using yttrium-90 (Y)-labeled resin microspheres, radiation protection is primarily concerned with avoiding contamination by radioactive spheres. H...
Holmium. An element of the rare earth family of metals. It has the atomic symbol Ho, atomic number 67, and atomic weight 164.93.
Educational programs for medical graduates entering a specialty. They include formal specialty training as well as academic work in the clinical and basic medical sciences, and may lead to board certification or an advanced medical degree.
Small uniformly-sized spherical particles, of micrometer dimensions, frequently labeled with radioisotopes or various reagents acting as tags or markers.
Medical complexes consisting of medical school, hospitals, clinics, libraries, administrative facilities, etc.
A biocompatible, hydrophilic, inert gel that is permeable to tissue fluids. It is used as an embedding medium for microscopy, as a coating for implants and prostheses, for contact lenses, as microspheres in adsorption research, etc.
