OBJECTIVES Biocytin analogues labelled with indium-111, yttrium-90 and lutetium-177 have shown their effectiveness in the imaging of infections/inflammation in patients with osteomyelitis and function as efficient tools in pretargeted antibody-guided radioimmunotherapy. In this study, the labelling of a biocytin analogue coupled with DOTA(More)
To test whether the use of a striatum weighted image may improve registration accuracy and diagnostic outcome in patients with parkinsonian syndromes (PS), weighted images were generated by increasing signal intensity of striatal voxels and used as intermediate dataset for co-registering the brain image onto template. Experimental validation was performed(More)
Three different methods to investigate the activity of a protein kinase (casein kinase, CK2) are described. The phosphorylation of the sequence-specific peptide (1) by CK2 was monitored by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Phosphorylation of the peptide monolayer assembled on a Au electrode yields a negatively charged surface that(More)
Metal clusters described in the framework of a simple tight binding model have been studied. Application of a dynamical approach (FOM), jointly with efficient storage of the sparse Hamiltonian matrix involved, is shown to allow direct evaluation of the electronic state density of sizable cubic-symmetry aggregates.
The DOTA macrocyclic ligand can form stable complexes with many cations besides yttrium and lutetium. For this reason, the presence of competing cationic metals in yttrium-90 and lutetium-177 chloride solutions can dramatically influence the radiolabeling yield. The aim of this study was to evaluate the coordination yield of yttrium- and lutetium-DOTATATE(More)
Over the last decade the interest towards functional neuroimaging has gradually increased, especially in the field of neurodegenerative diseases. At present, diagnosis of dementia is mostly clinical. Numerous modalities of neuroimaging are today available, each of them allowing a different aspect of neurodegeneration to be investigated. Although during the(More)
UNLABELLED [(18)F]-labelled choline analogues, such as 2-[(18)F]fluoroethylcholine ((18)FECH), have suggested to be a new class of choline derivatives highly useful for the imaging of prostate and brain tumours. In fact, tumour cells with enhanced proliferation rate usually exhibit an improved choline uptake due to the increased membrane phospholipids(More)
