After synthesis of fluorine-18 labelled analogues by [18F]fluorobenzoylation at the alpha-amino group, biodistribution and elimination of individual advanced glycation endproducts, namely N epsilon-carboxymethyllysine and N epsilon-carboxyethyllysine, were studied in comparison to lysine in rats after intravenous injection using positron emission tomography(More)
[11C]DASB is currently the most frequently used highly selective radiotracer for visualization and quantification of central SERT. Its use, however, is hampered by the short half-life of 11C, the moderate cortical test–retest reliability, and the lack of quantifying endogenous serotonin. Labelling with 18F allows in principle longer acquisition times for(More)
The three-step radiosynthesis of N-succinimidyl 4-[(18)F]fluorobenzoate ([(18)F]SFB) was adapted to a remotely controlled synthesis module. After optimization of the reaction conditions, the final [(18)F]SFB was obtained in decay-corrected radiochemical yields of 34-38% (related to [(18)F]fluoride; n=12) within a synthesis time of 68 min. The radiochemical(More)
4-([(18)F]fluoro)benzoyl-neurotensin(8-13) ((18)FB-Arg(8)-Arg(9)-Pro(10)-Tyr(11)- Ile(12)-Leu(13)-OH, 1) and two analogs stabilized in one and two positions ((18)FB-Arg(8)psi(CH(2)NH)Arg(9)-Pro(10)-Tyr(11)- Ile(12)-Leu(13)-OH, 2, (18)FB-Arg(8)psi(CH(2)NH)Arg(9)-Pro(10)-Tyr(11)-Tle(12)-Leu(13)-OH, 3) were synthesized in a radiochemical yield of 25-36% and a(More)
AIM Characterisation of the influence of different polymeric tube materials of a water target system, used for the production of 18F activity, on the specific activity of radiotracers. MATERIAL, METHODS Target water samples taken from different locations of the 18F water target system of a Cyclone 18/9 cyclotron, equipped with Teflon (PTFE) or(More)
The influence of the ligands ethylenediaminetetramethylene phosphonic acid (EDTMP) and citrate (CIT) on the biodistribution of radio-yttrium in rats bearing a DS-carcinosarcoma was compared. 88Y-EDTMP and 87Y-CIT were i.v. injected into the same animals. Faster blood clearance and higher renal excretion were observed for the EDTMP-ligand. Of high practical(More)
Hypoxia causes upregulation of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) which is a key regulator in tumor angiogenesis and essential for the proliferation of endothelial cells. Endothelial cells have been described to accumulate radiotracers like (18)F-FDG. However, the contribution of radiotracer uptake by endothelial cells to uptake measured in tumors by(More)
UNLABELLED Diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) with positron emission tomography (PET) using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) relies on typical alterations of brain glucose metabolism which are, however, not disease specific. Amyloid-β imaging has not entered clinical routine yet. Post mortem histological specimen of brain tissue from AD patients revealed(More)
The preparation of [99mTc(1,2-bis(dimethylphosphino)ethane)2Cl2]+ ([99mTc(DMPE)2Cl2]+) for imaging the myocardium is investigated. Starting from Fe(III)- or Fe(II)-DMPE and 99mTcO4- different preparation variants are compared. In these reactions either ascorbic acid or DTPA serves as an agent for complexing iron. A simple procedure using lyophilized initial(More)
