The twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTS) results from an unbalanced blood supply through placental anastomoses in monochorionic twins. It induces growth restriction, renal tubular dysgenesis, and oliguria in the donor and visceromegaly and polyuria in the recipient. A better understanding of its pathophysiology could contribute to improving the(More)
OBJECTIVE Case series with (11)C-PK11195 and positron emission tomography (PET) in stroke patients suggest that activated microglia may be detected in remote brain regions with fiber tract connections to the lesion site as an indicator of poststroke neuroinflammation. However, the specificity of these imaging findings remains to be demonstrated. METHODS(More)
INTRODUCTION The central benzodiazepine receptor (cBZR)-gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA(A)) receptor complex in the human brain plays an important role in many neurological and psychiatric disorders. (18)F-Labeled flumazenil ([(18)F]FZ) provides a potentially useful tracer to investigate those disorders by means of positron emission tomography (PET). (More)
Serum inhibin and FSH and FSH beta subunit mRNA levels were measured at 3h intervals throughout the 4 day estrous cycle in female rats and hourly between 1000 and 2400 h of proestrus. On proestrus, serum inhibin concentrations fell during the late morning-early afternoon, then increased transiently during the late afternoon gonadotropin surges. Inhibin(More)
Translation of carbon-11 labeled PET tracers to clinical settings is currently impeded by the technical difficulties associated with [11C]CO2 conversion into the highly reactive methylating agents [11C]CH3I and [11C]CH3OTf using automated modules relying on stationary valves. Here we describe development of the first in its kind "[11C]kit" for production of(More)
Pittsburgh compound B ([11 C]PiB) is the gold standard PET tracer for the in vivo imaging of amyloid plaques. Currently it is synthesized by either solution chemistry or using a "dry loop" approach followed by HPLC purification within 30 minutes starting from [11 C]CO2 . Here we report a novel, highly efficient solid phase supported carbon-11 radiolabeling(More)
Recently, silicon fluoride building blocks (SiFA) have emerged as valuable and promising tools to overcome challenges in the labeling of peptides and proteins for positron emission tomography (PET). Herein, we report a fully automated synthesis of N-succinimidyl 3-(di-tert-butyl[(18)F]fluorosilyl)benzoate ([(18)F]SiFB) by a commercially available Scintomics(More)
