Abstract

Aim: To monitor the effects of the apoptotic agent benzamide riboside (BR) on tumor volume and water apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in rat hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Materials and Methods: Water ADC of the tumors and nearby liver tissue was measured using diffusion-weighted 1H MRI (DWI). The two groups of BR-treated animals, which differed in their sensitivity to the treatment, were identified as responsive (RBR) and non-responsive (NRBR). Results: Tumor growth in the RBR group was arrested and the mean tumor volume in this group was 1/6th and 1/16th compared to that of the NRBR group on days 7 and 14 after treatment, respectively. Water ADC of HCC was higher than in nearby normal liver tissue. Before BR treatment, the mean water ADC was significantly higher in the R BR group compared to the NRBR group. BR therapy did not change the water ADC value regardless of tumor sensitivity. Conclusion: Although the water ADC did not change after chemotherapy by BR, DWI has great potential for detecting and predicting response to chemotherapy in HCC.
