Improved FAP-radiotheranostics for personalized cancer treatment
Improved FAP-radiotheranostics for personalized cancer treatment Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are a group of tumor stromal cells typically associated with cancer growth and metastasis. These CAFs show high expression of the fibroblast activation protein (FAP) on the cell membrane. Due to the selective FAP expression and cancer-specific distribution, CAFs have emerged as a promising cancer diagnostic marker and an attractive therapeutic target.
