The alpha-particle emitting radionuclides (223)Ra (t(1/2) = 11.4 d), (224)Ra (t(1/2) = 3.6 d), and (225)Ac(t(1/2) = 10.0 d) may have a broad application in targeted radiotherapy provided that they could be linked to vehicles with tumor affinity. The potential usefulness of liposomes as carriers was studied in the present work. Radium and actinium(More)
PURPOSE The recent development in radiosynthesis of the (11)C-carbamate function increases the potential of [(11)C]GR103545, which for the last decade has been regarded as promising for imaging the kappa-opioid receptor (kappa-OR) with PET. In the present study, [(11)C]GR103545 was evaluated in awake rhesus macaques. Separate investigations were performed(More)
2-[¹⁸F]Fluoroethyl azide ([¹⁸F]FEA) can readily be obtained by nucleophilic substitution of 2-azidoethyl-4-toluenesulfonate with [¹⁸F]fluoride (half-life 110 min), and has become widely used as a reagent for 'click' labeling of PET tracers. However, distillation of [18F]FEA is typically required, which is time-consuming and unpractical for routine(More)
Antagonist radiotracers have shown only a low sensitivity for detecting competition from high-efficacy agonists at opioid receptors (ORs) in vivo. We report that [(11)C]PEO binds with high affinity to mu and kappa-opioid receptors, is a full agonist, and concentrates in brain regions of rats with a high density of the mu-OR after intravenous injection.(More)
INTRODUCTION Neuronal events leading to development of long-term potentiation (LTP) in the nociceptive pathways may be a cellular mechanism underlying hyperalgesia. In the present study, we examine if induction of spinal LTP may be associated with functional changes in the supraspinal opioidergic system. The opioid receptors (ORs) play a key role in(More)
PURPOSE The increasing demand for radiopharmaceuticals to be provided reproducibly and flexibly with high frequency for clinical application and animal imaging would be better met by improved or even new strategies for automated tracer production. Radiosynthesis in microfluidic systems, i.e. narrow tubing with a diameter of approximately 50-500 microm,(More)
We report the synthesis and biological evaluation of a triplet of 6-O-(18)F-fluoroethylated derivatives of structurally related orvinols that span across the full range of intrinsic activities, the antagonist diprenorphine, the partial agonist buprenorphine, and the full agonist phenethyl-orvinol. [(18)F]fluoroethyl-diprenorphine,(More)
Biotinyl-3-[211 At]astatoanilide ([211 At]AtBA) was prepared in more than 80% yield by destannylation. In vitro, [211 At]AtBA exhibited a high affinity for streptavidin, and was stable after incubation in human serum, cerebrospinal fluid and distilled water, whereas it was rapidly degraded in mouse serum. HPLC analysis showed that the main degradation(More)
We have developed a new method for automated production of 2-[18F]fluoroethyl tosylate ([18F]FETos) that enables 18F-alkylation to provide PET tracers with high chemical purity. The method is based on the removal of excess ethylene glycol bistosylate precursor by precipitation and subsequent filtration and purification of the filtrate by means of solid(More)
The aim of this study was to test the applicability of the guidance levels for patient doses cooperatively set by the radiation protection authorities in the five Nordic countries. The kerma-area product (KAP) for five conventional radiological examination types was obtained from several hospitals in each of the Nordic countries. The number of radiographic(More)
