Acyclic chelate with ideal properties for (68)Ga PET imaging agent elaboration.
We have investigated novel bifunctional chelate alternatives to the aminocarboxylate macrocycles NOTA (N(3)O(3)) or DOTA (N(4)O(4)) for application of radioisotopes of Ga to diagnostic nuclearExpand

Evaluation of bifunctional chelates for the development of gallium-based radiopharmaceuticals.
Ga radioisotopes, including the generator-produced positron-emitting isotope (68)Ga (t1/2 = 68 min), are of increasing interest for the development of new radiopharmaceuticals. Bifunctional chelatesExpand

Evaluation of 64Cu-labeled bifunctional chelate-bombesin conjugates.
Several bifunctional chelates (BFCs) were investigated as carriers of (64)Cu for PET imaging. The most widely used chelator for (64)Cu labeling of BFCs is DOTAExpand

Evaluation of novel bifunctional chelates for the development of Cu-64-based radiopharmaceuticals.
BACKGROUND Currently available bifunctional chelates (BFCs) for attaching Cu-64 to a targeting molecule are limited by either their radiolabeling conditions or in vivo stability. With the goal ofExpand

RGD conjugates of the H2dedpa scaffold: synthesis, labeling and imaging with 68Ga.
INTRODUCTION The rekindled interest in the (68)Ga generator as an attractive positron emission tomography generator system has led us and others to investigate novel chelate systems for (68)Ga. WeExpand

Nitroimidazole-Containing H2dedpa and H2CHXdedpa Derivatives as Potential PET Imaging Agents of Hypoxia with (68)Ga.
(68)Ga is an attractive radiometal for use in positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. The success of (68)Ga-based agents is dependent on a chelator that exhibits rapid radiometal incorporation,Expand

H4octapa: an acyclic chelator for 111In radiopharmaceuticals.
This preliminary investigation of the octadentate acyclic chelator H(4)octapa (N(4)O(4)) with (111)In/(115)In(3+) has demonstrated it to be an improvement on the shortcomings of the current industryExpand

Carbohydrate-appended 3-hydroxy-4-pyridinone complexes of the [M(CO)3]+ core (M = Re, 99mTc, 186Re).
This work describes the use of 3-hydroxy-4-pyridinone ligands for binding the [M(CO)(3)](+) core (M = Re, Tc) in the context of preparing novel Tc(I) and Re(I) glucose conjugates. Five pyridinoneExpand

(68)Ga small peptide imaging: comparison of NOTA and PCTA.
In this study, a bifunctional version of the chelate PCTA was compared to the analogous NOTA derivative for peptide conjugation, (68)Ga radiolabeling, and small peptide imaging. Both p-SCN-Bn-PCTAExpand
