Novel Probe to Detect Vascular Inflammation
A novel fluorescence- and radio-labeled probe has been developed to improve the imaging of inflamed vasculature that can aid in the identification of rupture-prone arterial aneurisms and atherosclerosis plaques. It can be used for the non-invasive detection of these serious conditions and for the continued monitoring of disease progression. The pro...

Colloid Radiolabel or Drug Delivery to Lymph Nodes
This invention provides a method of targeting colloids to the lymph nodes and retaining the colloids in the lymph nodes for an extended period of time. The colloids can be used for imaging and/or for delivery of therapeutic agents. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node encountered by metastatic tumor cells that have escaped from the pri...
