UNLABELLED Carbon-11-labeled N,N-dimethyl-2-(2'-amino-4'-hydroxymethylphenylthio)benzylamine (HOMADAM) was synthesized as a new serotonin transporter (SERT) imaging agent. METHODS Carbon-11 was introduced into HOMADAM by preparation of N-methyl-2-(2'-amino-4'-hydroxymethylphenylthio)benzylamine followed by alkylation with carbon-11 iodomethane. Binding(More)
N, N-dimethyl-2-(2'-amino-4'-hydroxymethylphenylthio)benzylamine (38), substituted on ring A, was reported to display high binding affinity and selectivity to the human brain serotonin transporter (SERT). In an attempt to explore the potential of compounds substituted on ring B of the phenylthiophenyl core structure, three derivatives of 38 were(More)
Associations between domestic violence exposure and violent and prosocial behavior were tested in a sample of Colombian adolescents, with attention to impulsivity and substance use problems as mediators of these associations. A representative sample of 1,152 school youths and a convenience group of 148 juvenile offenders aged 11-19 years participated.(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was a comparison of growth and tolerance in premature infants fed either standard powdered human milk fortifier (HMF) or a newly formulated concentrated liquid that contained extensively hydrolyzed protein. METHODS This was an unblinded randomized controlled multicenter noninferiority study on preterm infants receiving human milk(More)
INTRODUCTION Carbon-11 (C-11) N,N-dimethyl-2-(2'-amino-4'-hydroxymethyl-phenylthio)benzylamine ([(11)C]HOMADAM) has been reported as highly specific and selective positron emission tomography (PET) radiotracer showing fast kinetics for the human brain serotonin transporter (SERT). In our continued effort to develop appropriate PET SERT radioligand that can(More)
The nortropane cocaine analogue, 2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta-[4'-((Z)-2-iodoethenyl)phenyl]nortropane (ZIENT), is a high affinity, selective serotonin transporter (SERT) ligand that has shown promise as a SERT imaging agent for single photon computed tomography (SPECT) when labeled with I-123. Synthesis of the labeling precursor, radiosynthesis of(More)
[11C]N,N-Dimethyl-2-(2'-amino-4'-ethylphenylthio)benzylamine ([11C]EADAM) was synthesized in the development of a serotonin transporter (SERT) imaging ligand for positron emission tomography (PET). The methods of ligand synthesis, results of in vitro characterization, 11C labeling and in vivo micro-PET imaging studies of [11C]EADAM in cynomolgus monkey(More)
