Glycosaminoglycan concentration in cancer tissue
Introduction. Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) play a widespread role in tissue modelling. GAG polymers may affect several receptor pathways in parallel.
Aim. To present difference in concentration of GAG in healthy and cancer tissues.
Material and methods. The literature search was performed nd reviewed using selected keywords.
Results. We revieved the methods of detection various types of glycans measured by Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Conclusion. MRI methodology provides an efficient tool forstudy of cellular composition. The use T1 aof T2 measurements to study cancer tissue is a promising assay.
