Title:
Early Metabolic Response Evaluation by Fluorine-18 Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography Allows In vivo Testing of Chemosensitivity in Gastric Cancer: Long-term Results of a Prospective Study. 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: We prospectively evaluated the predictive value of positron emission tomography using fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG-PET) for in vivo testing of chemosensitivity in locally advanced gastric cancer using an a priori definition of metabolic response (a decrease of>35% of the standard uptake value). The goal of the study was the definition of biologically different groups of patients prior to or early during induction therapy, with special emphasis on FDG non-avid tumors. EXPERIMENTAL...    »
