Precursors of Lipid Metabolism for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer
The present invention pertains to methods for the treatment and diagnosis of cancer employing prodrugs for targeting of lipid metabolism comprising either a detectable label or a therapeutic residue. The invention is based on the finding that the present prodrugs are specifically enriched in tumor tissue, in which they may be detected by suitable imaging techniques. Alternatively, a prodrug comprising a therapeutic residue, such as a suitable radioactive residue, may be used for the treatment of cancer.
