Dynamic response of breast tumor oxygenation to hyperoxic respiratory challenge monitored with three oxygen-sensitive parametersDynamic response of breast tumor oxygenation to

three oxygen-sensitive parameters
Yueqing Gu, Vincent A. Bourke, Jae G. Kim, Anca Constantinescu, Ralph P. Mason,and Hanli Liu The simultaneous measurement of three oxygen-sensitive parameters ͓arterial hemoglobin oxygen sat-uration ͑SaO ͒, tumor vascular-oxygenated hemoglobin concentration ͓͑HbO ͔͒, and tumor oxygen ten- sion ͑pO ͔͒ in response to hyperoxic respiratory challenge is demonstrated in rat breast tumors. The effects of two hyperoxic gases ͓oxygen and carbogen ͑5% CO and 95% O ͔͒ were compared, by use of two groups of Fisher rats with subcutaneous 13762NF breast tumors implanted in pedicles on the foreback.
Two different gas-inhalation sequences were compared, i.e., air– carbogen–air– oxygen–air and air–oxygen–air– carbogen–air.
The results demonstrate that both of the inhaled, hyperoxic gases signifi- cantly improved the tumor oxygen status.
All three parameters displayed similar dynamic response to hyperoxic gas interventions, but with different response times: the fastest for arterial SaO , followed by biphasic changes in tumor vascular ͓HbO ͔, and then delayed responses for pO . Both of the gases induced similar changes in vascular oxygenation and regional tissue pO in the rat tumors, and changes in ͓HbO ͔ and mean pO showed a linear correlation with large standard deviations, which presumably results from global versus local measurements.
Indeed, the pO data revealed heterogeneous regional response to hyperoxic interventions.
Although preliminary near-infrared measurements had been dem- onstrated previously in this model, the addition of the pO optical fiber probes provides a link between the noninvasive relative measurements of vascular phenomena based on endogenous reporter molecules,with the quantitative, albeit, invasive pO determinations.

The simultaneous measurements demonstrate the compatibility of the NIRS system with the FOXYfiber-optic oxygen-sensing system, without interfer-ence.
Both systems are relatively inexpensive and provide real-time measurements, but the multichan-nel FOXY fiber-optic system monitors ⌬pO in spe- cific locations, whereas the NIRS system providesglobal measurements.
