  • 1. Non-invasive small animal imaging in cancer drug research and development Cathy Zhang, Translational Research Group, Oncology Research Unit, Pfizer Global Research and Development, La Jolla Laboratories
  • 2. Preclinical imaging modalities overview Clinical Modalities Light Output Application Characteristics Imaging anatomical, high throughput, low cost BLI luciferase labeled cells functional, high sensitivity/ No Bioluminescence /luciferin injection molecular low resolution fluorescence labeled anatomical, high sensitivity Fluorescence molecules or cells functional, Limited (exogenous/intrinsic) molecular (low cost) 18FLT-PET injection of 3’-Fluoro-3’ anatomical, high resolution Yes deoxythymidine functional (high cost) interaction of sound anatomical, high resolution Yes Ultrasound waves with living tissues functional (vasculature) anatomical, high resolution Yes CT n/a functional (bone, lung) Target – P-cadherin, CDK4 and Chk1
  • 3. P-Cadherin target key profile Cell 1 Cell 2 Intracellular Plasma Space Cell surface glycoprotein /involved Membrane in Ca++-dependent cell-cell adhesion. actin Cadherin cytoskeleton Signalling is mediated by β- Dimers catenin nucleus In the cytoplasm, β-catenin is Adherens stabilized by Wnt signaling and Β-catenin/Tcf Junction translocates to the nucleus Wnt Target gene transcription In the nucleus, β-catenin/partners w/ Tcf factor to regulate Cytoplasm expression of oncogenes such as, c-myc, survivn, and cyclin D1 etc. tissue cell integrity Proliferation cell invasion
