In vitro and in vivo metabolism of Lu-AMBA, a GRP-receptor binding compound, and the synthesis and characterization of its metabolites.
The metabolism of (177)Lu-AMBA (AMBA = DO3A-CH(2)CO-G-(4-aminobenzoyl)-QWAVGHLM-NH(2)), a radiotherapeutic compound in clinical development that binds to GRP and NMB receptors, was studied in vitroExpand

Synthesis, stabilization and formulation of [177Lu]Lu-AMBA, a systemic radiotherapeutic agent for Gastrin Releasing Peptide receptor positive tumors.
A robust formulation was developed for [(177)Lu]Lu-AMBA ((177)Lu-DO3A-CH(2)CO-G-[4-aminobenzoyl]-QWAVGHLM-NH(2)), a Bombesin-like agonist with high affinity for Gastrin Releasing Peptide (GRP)Expand

(68)Ga-AMBA and (18)F-FDG for preclinical PET imaging of breast cancer: effect of tamoxifen treatment on tracer uptake by tumor.
INTRODUCTION AMBA is a bombesin analogue that binds to GRPr. In a mouse model of estrogen-dependent human breast cancer, we tested whether (68)Ga-AMBA can be used for PET detection of GRPr-expressingExpand
