UNLABELLED Terbium offers 4 clinically interesting radioisotopes with complementary physical decay characteristics: (149)Tb, (152)Tb, (155)Tb, and (161)Tb. The identical chemical characteristics of these radioisotopes allow the preparation of radiopharmaceuticals with identical pharmacokinetics useful for PET ((152)Tb) and SPECT diagnosis ((155)Tb) and for(More)
An improved chemical strategy for processing of the generator produced (68)Ga was developed based on processing of the original (68)Ge/(68)Ga generator eluate on a micro-column. Direct pre-concentration and purification of the eluted (68)Ga is performed on a cation-exchange resin in hydrochloric acid/acetone media. A supplementary step based on a second(More)
Due to its physical and chemical characteristics, 177Lu is a very attractive radionuclide for use in nuclear medicine. This paper introduces a method for a precise calculation of the irradiation yield of 177Lu produced by neutron activation of 176Lu in a nuclear reactor. The calculation is based on the Westcott convention which requires the knowledge of the(More)
The studies of complete fusion reactions leading to production of superheavy elements (SHE) with Z ≥ 108 is extremely difficult due to very low production cross sections. Excitation function measurements of evaporation residues from a fusion reaction together with measurements of the fusion – fission cross section provide important experimental information(More)
The periodic table provides a classification of the chemical properties of the elements. But for the heaviest elements, the transactinides, this role of the periodic table reaches its limits because increasingly strong relativistic effects on the valence electron shells can induce deviations from known trends in chemical properties. In the case of the first(More)
UNLABELLED In recent years, implementation of (68)Ga-radiometalated peptides for PET imaging of cancer has attracted the attention of clinicians. Herein, we propose the use of (44)Sc (half-life = 3.97 h, average β(+) energy [Eβ(+)av] = 632 keV) as a valuable alternative to (68)Ga (half-life = 68 min, Eβ(+)av = 830 keV) for imaging and dosimetry before(More)
The analysis of a large body of heavy ion fusion reaction data with medium-heavy projectiles (6 < or = Z < or = 18) and actinide targets suggests a disappearance of the 3n exit channel with increasing atomic number of the projectile. Here, we report a measurement of the excitation function of the reaction (248)Cm ((26)Mg,xn)(274-x)Hs and the observation of(More)
INTRODUCTION The low-energy β(-) emitter (161)Tb is very similar to (177)Lu with respect to half-life, beta energy and chemical properties. However, (161)Tb also emits a significant amount of conversion and Auger electrons. Greater therapeutic effect can therefore be expected in comparison to (177)Lu. It also emits low-energy photons that are useful for(More)
PURPOSE The L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1CAM) is considered a valuable target for therapeutic intervention in different types of cancer. Recent studies have shown that anti-L1CAM radioimmunotherapy (RIT) with (67)Cu- and (177)Lu-labelled internalising monoclonal antibody (mAb) chCE7 was effective in the treatment of human ovarian cancer xenografts. In this(More)
PURPOSE The radiolanthanide (161)Tb (T 1/2 = 6.90 days, Eβ(-) av = 154 keV) was recently proposed as a potential alternative to (177)Lu (T 1/2 = 6.71 days, Eβ(-) av = 134 keV) due to similar physical decay characteristics but additional conversion and Auger electrons that may enhance the therapeutic efficacy. The goal of this study was to compare (161)Tb(More)
