Abstract:

Although existing radiographic, ultrasound and MRI modalities for the detection of breast canter are useful, they are less than ideal. Nuclear medicine approaches using radiolabled anti-breast tumor antibodies and other radiolabeled agents have met with similar mixed results. Accordingly there is a need for improved approaches for the detection and treatment of breast tumors. This work explored several novel approaches using DNA for specific targeting and signal amplification. The work completed during this period will serve as the-foundation for future work in this area.
