Abstract

Three quantitative and non-invasive techniques were used to monitor angiogenesis in Kaposi's sarcoma patients: thermography, laser Doppler imaging (LDI), and near-infrared spectroscopy. Before and after combination cytotoxic and antiangiogenesis therapy, blood volume, oxygenated hemoglobin, temperature, and blood flow were analyzed. These three techniques are objective, easy to perform, and appear to be very sensitive in assessing changes in the lesions upon administration of therapy.
