[123I]FP-CIT (N-omega-fluoropropyl-2 beta-carbomethoxy-3 beta-(4-iodophenyl)-tropane), a radioiodinated cocaine analogue, was evaluated as an agent for the in vivo labeling of dopamine (DA) transporters by biodistribution studies in rats and by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) studies in unilateral(More)
The potential of both stereoisomers of 11 beta-methoxy-17 alpha-[123I] iodovinylestradiol (E- and Z-[123I]MIVE) as suitable radioligands for imaging of estrogen receptor (ER)-positive human breast tumours was studied. The 17 alpha-[123I]iodovinylestradiol derivatives were prepared stereospecifically by oxidative radioiododestannylation of the corresponding(More)
UNLABELLED In metastatic breast cancer, the estrogen receptor (ER) is a well-known prognostic factor predictive of response to hormonal treatment in most, but not all, patients. Recently, a receptor-specific radioligand for in vivo imaging of the ER in breast cancer patients was developed: (123)I-labeled cis-11beta-methoxy-17alpha-iodovinyl-estradiol(More)
A series of 1-{2-[bis(4-fluorophenyl)methoxy]ethyl}piperazines (CYD1, 2, 3, 5) with a 4-substituent incorporating a 1-hydroxy-3-iodo-2-propenyl moiety, except CYD2 which lacks the hydroxy, was synthesized as potential in vivo imaging ligands for the dopamine transporter. For two of the piperazine derivatives (CYD3 and 5), possible stereoselectivity was(More)
Abs are able to induce inflammatory antitumor responses by recruiting IgG Fc receptor (FcgammaR)-bearing cytotoxic effector cells. We recently described the capacity of the high affinity FcgammaRI (CD64) to trigger cytotoxic activity of neutrophils (PMN) during granulocyte CSF (G-CSF) treatment. To take advantage of FcgammaRI as a cytotoxic trigger molecule(More)
We have synthesized and evaluated E-11beta-nitrato-17alpha-iodovinylestradiol (E-NIVE; E-3c) and its 123I-labelled form, as a new potential radioligand for imaging of estrogen receptor (ER)-positive human breast tumors. E-[123I]NIVE was prepared by stereospecific iododestannylation of the E-tri-n-butylstannylvinyl precursor (E-2c), obtained from reaction of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility of noninvasive imaging of estrogen receptors (ERs) in primary and metastatic breast cancer with the iodine-123-labeled ER-specific ligand cis-11beta-methoxy-17alpha-iodovinylestradiol-17beta (Z-[123I]MIVE) using conventional nuclear medicine techniques. PATIENTS AND METHODS Z-[123I]MIVE planar scintigraphy and(More)
This study reports on the distribution and radiation dosimetry of iodine-123-labelled cis-11β-methoxy-17α-iodovinyloestradiol (Z-[123I]MIVE), a promising radioligand for imaging of oestrogen receptors (ERs) in human breast cancer. Whole-body scans were performed up to 24 h after intravenous injection of 138–193 MBq Z-[123I]MIVE in five healthy female(More)
PURPOSE To determine the sensitivity of iodine 123 ((123)I)-labeled cis-11beta-methoxy-17alpha-iodovinyl estradiol (Z-MIVE) scintigraphy for the detection of estrogen receptors in patients with primary breast carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 22 patients, estrogen receptor status was assessed with planar scintigraphy and single photon emission computed(More)
We studied the potential of both stereoisomers of 17alpha-[123I]iodovinyloestradiol (E- and Z-[123I]IVE) and of 11beta-methoxy-17alpha-[123I]iodovinyloestradiol (E- and Z-[123I]MIVE) as suitable radioligands for the imaging of oestrogen receptor(ER)-positive human breast tumours. The 17alpha-[123I]iodovinyloestradiols were prepared stereospecifically by(More)
