Title:
MR imaging of phagocytosis in experimental gliomas. 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: To determine whether phagocytosis can be observed in vivo in glioma cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Rat C6 glioma cells were studied in culture and after intracerebral implantation into 13 rats. Monocrystalline iron oxide nanoparticles (MION), a model marker of phagocytosis, was administered intravenously to tumor-bearing rats at 2-20 mg of iron per kilogram. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was performed at multiple time points. RESULTS: Glioma cells in culture showed uptake of MION in am...    »
