UNLABELLED The objective of this study was to analyze the safety and efficacy of the (177)Lu-labeled DOTAGA-based prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) ligand (177)Lu-DOTAGA-(I-y)fk(Sub-KuE) ((177)Lu-PSMA) in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). METHODS Fifty-six mCRPC patients underwent PSMA radioligand therapy (RLT)(More)
AIM The prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a cell surface protein, which is overexpressed in nearly all cases of prostate cancer (PCa). PET imaging with (68)Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC has recently found widespread application in the diagnosis of recurrent PCa. In this study, the diagnostic potential of (64)Cu-labeled PSMA ligand (PSMA-617) PET in patients(More)
In the last decade there has been a significant increase in the development of radiolabelled peptides for diagnostic applications, especially due to simplified methods of purification. Peptides have fast clearance, rapid tissue penetration, and low antigenicity and can therefore be produced easily and inexpensively. In addition, if the diagnostic scan is(More)
A potential milestone in personalized nuclear medicine is theranostics of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) based on molecular imaging using PET/CT with 68Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) ligands and molecular radiotherapy using PSMA-targeted radioligand therapy (PRLT) with 177Lu-PSMA ligands. 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT(More)
Head and neck paragangliomas (HNPGLs) are rare tumours arising from autonomic nervous system ganglia. Although surgery offers the best chance of complete cure, there is associated morbidity due to the crucial location of these tumours. Radiotherapy arrests tumour growth and provides symptomatic improvement, but has long-term consequences. These tumours(More)
We recently introduced the potent gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR) antagonist 68Ga-SB3 (68Ga-DOTA-p-aminomethylaniline-diglycolic acid-DPhe-Gln-Trp-Ala-Val-Gly-His-Leu-NHEt), showing excellent tumor localizing efficacy in animal models and in patients. By replacement of the C-terminal Leu13-Met14-NH2 dipeptide of SB3 by Sta13-Leu14-NH2, the novel(More)
OBJECTIVES (1) To identify myocardial perfusion abnormalities in a cohort of patients having coronary artery disease (CAD) risk factors, with either suspected or clinical evidence of ischaemic heart disease (IHD), and with varying degree of coronary artery stenosis. (2) To evaluate the clinical significance of the extent and severity of perfusion(More)
Prostate cancer is the most common noncutaneous cancer among men, rendering the diagnosis and staging of significant medical and public interest. One of the most interesting developments in the application of nuclear oncology has been the development of novel diagnostic agents that are able to facilitate targeted therapies using the concept of theranostics.(More)
Somatostatin receptor PET/CT using (68)Ga-labeled somatostatin analogs, is a mainstay for the evaluation of the somatostatin receptor status in neuroendocrine neoplasms. In addition, the assessment of glucose metabolism by (18)F-FDG PET/CT at diagnosis can overcome probable shortcomings of histopathologic grading. This offers a systematic theranostic(More)
