Mit Vitamin gegen Krebs

Forschung mit radioaktiv markierten Folsäure-Verbindungen
Täglich nehmen wir mit unserer Nahrung Folsäure auf. Dieses Vitamin ist wichtig für die Zellteilung und somit für das Wachstum. Doch in Zukunft könnte dem Vitamin noch eine weitere Rolle zukommen. Denn am PSI werden Therapien gegen Krebs entwickelt, die Folsäure nutzen.

The Center Radiopharmaceuticals Sciences is a member of the FP7 consortium “BetaCure”, a collaboration between 17 research institutions and companies throughout whole Europe. The aim of the project “Personalized diagnosis and treatment of hyperinsulinemic hypoglycaemia caused by beta-cell pathology” is to develop new treatment modalities for rare beta-cell derived hyperinsulinemic diseases like Nesidioblastosis or Insulinoma. Nesidioblastosis is a hyperplasia of the beta-cells which lead to a hyperproduction of insulin in newborns. Insulinomas are tumors derived from beta-cells. These diseases are potential life threatening because of its hypoglycemic pattern and have only limited therapeutic modalities. The consortium is clinical oriented with a strong part of preclinical research and has a close collaboration with patient organizations related to these diseases. The project started on 1st of April 2014.

Development of radiolabeled antibodies for clinical diagnosis of invasive Aspergillosis by PET imaging

The Center for Radiopharmaceutical Sciences is a research partner in the project entitled “New Molecular-Functional Imaging Technologies and Therapeutic Strategies for Theranostic of Invasive Aspergillosis” (MATHIAS) funded by the European Union in the 7th Framework Programme. The main goal of this collaborative project is the development of radiolabeled antibodies for clinical diagnosis of invasive Aspergillosis by PET imaging. The preclinical evaluation of different antibody fragments for imaging and radioimmunotherapy are additional goals of MATHIAS. The project started on 1st October 2013 and the duration of the project is five years.
