UNLABELLED The imaging of dopamine transporter (DAT) with (99m)Tc-TRODAT-1 ([2-[[2-[[[3-(4-chlorophenyl)-8-methyl-8-azabicyclo[3,2,1]oct-2-yl]methyl](2-mercaptoethyl)amino]ethyl]amino]ethanethiolato(3-)-N2,N2',S2,S2']oxo-[1R-(exo-exo)]-(99m)Tc-technetium) and SPECT has been recently proposed to be a valuable and feasible means of assessment of the integrity(More)
A 99mTc labeled tropane derivative, [99mTc] TRODAT-1 (2beta-((N,N'-bis(2-mercaptoethyl) ethylene diamino)methyl), 3beta-(4-chlorophenyl) tropane), is a potential dopamine transporter (DAT) imaging agent for the central nervous system. To better understand the binding localization of [99mTc] TRODAT-1 both in the brain and the body, whole-body(More)
UNLABELLED Using (99m)Tc-TRODAT-1 ((99m)Tc-[2[[2-[[[3-(4-chlorophenyl)-8-methyl-8-azabicyclo[3,2,1]-oct-2-yl]-methyl](2-mercaptoethyl) amino]ethyl]amino]ethane-thiolato(3-)-N2,N2',S2,S2]oxo-[1R-(exo-exo)])) brain SPECT imaging, we measured striatal dopamine transporters (DATs) activity in multiple system atrophy (MSA) to investigate the possibility of(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to use brain SPECT to differentiate vascular parkinsonism (VP) from Parkinson's disease. METHODS Fourteen VP patients (age range, 59-87 y; mean age, 70 +/- 7.5 y), 30 Parkinson's disease patients (age range, 54-84 y; mean age, 65 +/- 8.8 y), and 26 healthy (control) individuals (age range, 50-85 y; mean age, 60 +/- 9(More)
UNLABELLED Functional brain imaging targeting the presynaptic dopamine nerve terminal of the nigrostriatal system has been used for monitoring disease progression and evaluating therapeutic effectiveness in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). (99m)Tc-TRODAT-1 binds with high selectivity to the dopamine transporters in the striatum and can be imaged with(More)
Current progress in nanomedicine has exploited the possibility of designing tumor-targeted nanocarriers being able to deliver radionuclide payloads in a site or molecular selective manner to improve the efficacy and safety of cancer imaging and therapy. Radionuclides of auger electron-, alpha-, beta-, and gamma-radiation emitters have been(More)
Imaging of dopamine transporters (DATs) in the brain using [99Tcm]TRODAT-1 showed excellent pharmacokinetics for estimation of transporter concentrations. It has been reported that there may be differences in the binding kinetics of DAT radiotracers to DATs between normal subjects and patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). The aim of this study was to(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a severe loss of the dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta. In this study, we evaluated pre- and post-synaptic binding sites of the dopamine system in three normal and one parkinsonian monkeys using simultaneous [99mTc]TRODAT-1 and [123I]IBZM imaging.(More)
BACKGROUND Nanoliposomes are designed as carriers capable of packaging drugs through passive targeting tumor sites by enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effects. In the present study the biodistribution, pharmacokinetics, micro single-photon emission computed tomography (micro-SPECT/CT) image, dosimetry, and therapeutic efficacy of (188)Re-labeled(More)
