The need to track and evaluate the fate of transplanted cells is an important issue in regenerative medicine. In order to accomplish this, pre-labelling cells with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents is a well-established method. Uptake of MRI contrast agents by non-phagocytic stem cells, and factors such as cell homeostasis or the adverse(More)
The anorectic compound CCK-9 was coupled to polyethylene glycol 5 kDa, 10 kDa, 20 kDa and 30 kDa, under different reaction conditions. Conjugates were purified by HPLC and characterized by MALDI-TOF MS. A 96% PEGylation yield was obtained in buffer pH 7.5 after 6h reaction at 20 degrees C. The anorectic activity was tested in vivo in rats. A single bolus(More)
