Located in presynaptic cholinergic nerve terminals, the vesicular acetylcholine transporter (VAChT) represents a potential target for quantitative visualization of early degeneration of cholinergic neurons in Alzheimer's disease using PET. Benzovesamicol derivatives are proposed as radioligands for this purpose. We report QSAR studies of vesamicol and(More)
As the serotonin transporter (SERT) is involved in several neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders; radiopharmaceuticals to image the SERT by PET would be valuable in studying these diseases. To this end we synthesized diphenyloxide derivatives and sulfide analogs, as new tracers, incorporating a fluorine or oxyalkyl fluorinated group on 4' or(More)
The dopamine transporter (DAT) plays a pivotal role in the regulation of dopamine neurotransmission, and is involved in a number of physiological functions and brain disorders. Furthermore the DAT analysis by molecular imaging techniques is a useful tool for the diagnosis and follow up treatment of diseases involving the DAT. In order to predict the(More)
