PURPOSE Radiolabeled somatostatin analogues are important tools for the in vivo localization and targeted radionuclide therapy of somatostatin-receptor-positive tumors. The aim of this study was to evaluate a new somatostatin analogue designed for the labeling with (99m)Tc: [6-hydrazinopyridine-3-carboxylic acid (HYNIC(0)), 1-Nal(3), Thr(8)]-octreotide(More)
PURPOSE Development of a gallium-68-labeled renal tracer can be a good substitute for Tc-99m, a known SPECT tracer. In this study, effort was made to develop (68)Ga-ethylenecysteamine cysteine ((68)Ga-ECC). METHODS Ga-ECC was prepared using generator-based (68)GaCl3 and ethylenecysteamine cysteine (ECC) at optimized conditions. Stability of the complex(More)
OBJECTIVE We digested anti-MUC1 monoclonal antibody PR81 to produce F(ab')₂ fragments. A comparison was performed between the two radiolabeled PR81 and F(ab')₂ fragments for breast tumor imaging in a mouse model. METHODS The optimum conditions for pepsin digestion of PR81 were investigated in terms of enzymes: antibody ratio, digestion time duration and(More)
Introduction: Ubiquicidin 29-41 (UBI) is a fragment of the cationic antimicrobial peptide that is present in various species including humans. The purpose of this study was to investigate radiochemical and biological characteristics of [6-hydrazinopyridine-3-carboxylic acid (HYNIC)]-UBI 29-41 designed for the labeling with
INTRODUCTION Ubiquicidin (UBI) 29-41 is a cationic synthetic antimicrobial peptide fragment that binds preferentially with the anionic microbial cell membrane at the site of infection. This study was conducted to evaluate the potentiality of [(99m)Tc/Tricine/HYNIC(0)]UBI 29-41 prepared from lyophilized kits as an infection imaging agent in humans. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE Optimized production and quality control of gallium-68 labeled ethylenediamine tetramethylene phosphonate ((68)Ga-EDTMP) as an efficient PET radiotracer for bone scans have been presented. METHODS Efforts have been made to present a fast, efficient, cost-effective and facile protocol for (68)Ga-EDTMP productions for clinical trials. (68)Ga-EDTMP(More)
Somatostatin-derived analogues play an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors. The aim of this study was to evaluate a new somatostatin analogue designed for labeling with (99m)Tc: [6-hydrazinopyridine-3-carboxylic acid (HYNIC(0)), β-(3-benzothienyl)-Ala (BzThi(3))]-octreotide ([HYNIC]-BOC), using(More)
Introduction: In this research, [ 166 Ho]Holmium chitosan complex production is described in details, followed by determination of complex radiochemical purity, stability and biodistribution (after intra-articular injection) in wild-type male rats. Finally a Ho-166 based chitosan kit for ultimate radiosynovectomy as well as radiotherapy applications was(More)
OBJECTIVE(S) In this work a new possible agent for radiosynovectomy has been targeted for articular pain palliation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Lu-177 of 2.6-3 GBq/mg specific activity was obtained by irradiation of natural Lu2O3 sample with thermal neutron flux of 4 × 10(13) n.cm(-2).s(-1). The product was converted into chloride form which was further used(More)
Introduction: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common autoimmune disease, leading to the destruction of the joints and causing pain, disability, and immobility in the patients. Radiosynovectomy (RSV) has been applied as an effective treatment for the patients with resistant synovitis after failure of long-term pharmacotherapy and intra-articular(More)
