Investigator Profile: James O. Park, MD
Dr. Park’s research involves cutting-edge application of nanotechnology to improve the diagnosis and treatment of primary liver cancer. In this novel approach, Glypican-3 antibodies are used to target and deliver Zirconium-89, greatly enhancing the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of hepatocellular carcinoma on positron emission tomography. This Glypican-3 antibody targeting technology is also being used with an alpha-particle emitting radioisotope, Astatine-211 as an innovative therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma.
