Rhenium-186 (186Re) labeled nanoliposome (RNL) therapy for recurrent glioblastoma patients has shown promise to improve outcomes by locally delivering radiation to affected areas. To optimize the delivery of RNL, we have developed a framework to predict patient-specific response to RNL using image-guided mathematical models. Methods: We calibrated a family of reaction-diffusion type models with multi-modality imaging data from ten patients (NCR01906385) to predict the spatio-temporal dynamics of each patient's tumor. The data consisted of longitudinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) to estimate tumor burden and local RNL activity, respectively. The optimal model from the family was selected and used to predict future growth. A simplified version of the model was used in a leave-one-out analysis to predict the development of an individual patient's tumor, based on cohort parameters. Results: Across the cohort, predictions using patient-specific parameters with the selected model were able to achieve Spearman correlation coefficients (SCC) of 0.98 and 0.93 for tumor volume and total cell number, respectively, when compared to the measured data. Predictions utilizing the leave-one-out method achieved SCCs of 0.89 and 0.88 for volume and total cell number across the population, respectively. Conclusion: We have shown that patient-specific calibrations of a biology-based mathematical model can be used to make early predictions of response to RNL therapy. Furthermore, the leave-one-out framework indicates that radiation doses determined by SPECT can be used to assign model parameters to make predictions directly following the conclusion of RNL treatment.
