The acute effects of intravenously administered L-acetylcarnitine (LAC) were evaluated with single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and 99mTc-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime in 30 demented patients (21 with a clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's dementia and 9 with mixed-type dementia). Two SPECT scans were performed: in basal conditions, and 30 min(More)
Thirty-six patients affected by Parkinson's disease were studied using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and [99mTc]-HM-PAO as a tracer. The scanning procedure was performed 16-24 h after discontinuation of specific therapy. Tracer activity ratios were determined in 10 pairs of cerebellar, cortical, and subcortical regions. Data were(More)
Thirty-four demented patients, 19 with Alzheimer's and 15 with multi-infarct dementia, were studied using single photon emission computed tomography, and 99mTc-hexamethyl-propylenemine oxime as a tracer of regional cerebral perfusion. Tracer activity ratios, determined in cortical and subcortical regions, were compared with those of 11 age-matched controls.(More)
Single photon emission tomography (SPET) with the novel ligand [123I]-IBZM was used to image central dopamine D2 receptors in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. The aim was to assess basal ganglia (BG) receptor densities in relation to the response to L-dopa therapy. To better characterize the clinical potential of [123I]-IBZM SPET, each patient underwent a(More)
