The activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) is elevated locally under many pathological conditions. Gelatinases MMP2 and MMP9 are of particular interest because of their implication in angiogenesis, cancer cell proliferation and metastasis, and atherosclerotic plaque rupture. The aim of this study was to identify and develop a selective gelatinase(More)
INTRODUCTION Atherosclerotic plaque rupture is the primary cause for myocardial infarction and stroke. During plaque progression macrophages and mast cells secrete matrix-degrading proteolytic enzymes, such as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). We studied levels of MMPs and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-3 (TIMP-3) in relation to the characteristics(More)
In the search for an efficient, fluorine-18 labeled amino acid based radiotracer for tumor imaging with positron emission tomography (PET), two new tryptophan analogs were synthesized and characterized in vitro and in vivo. Both are tryptophan alkyl-derivatives, namely 2-(3-[(18)F]fluoropropyl)-DL-tryptophan ([(18)F]2-FPTRP) and(More)
σ₂ Receptors are promising biomarkers for cancer diagnosis given the relationship between the proliferative status of tumors and their density. With the aim of contributing to the research of σ₂ receptor Positron Emission Tomography (PET) probes, we developed 2-[3-[6,7-dimethoxy-3,4-dihydroisoquinolin-2(1H)-yl]propyl]-3,4-dihydroisoquinolin-1(2H)-one (3),(More)
18F radiolabelling of peptides bearing two different prosthetic groups was successfully conducted in a continuous flow microfluidic device for the first time. Radiochemical yields were dependent on precursor concentration, reaction temperature and flow rate. The choice of leaving group had a dramatic influence on the reaction outcome. Rapid reaction(More)
Silicon-containing prosthetic groups have been conjugated to peptides to allow for a single-step labeling with (18)F radioisotope. The fairly lipophilic di-tert-butylphenylsilane building block contributes unfavorably to the pharmacokinetic profile of bombesin conjugates. In this article, theoretical and experimental studies toward the development of more(More)
We study the computability properties of symmetric hyperbolic systems of PDE A ∂u ∂t + m ∑ i=1 Bi ∂u ∂xi = 0, A = A∗ > 0, Bi = B∗ i , with the initial condition u|t=0 = φ(x1, . . . , xm). Such systems first considered by K.O. Friedrichs can be used to describe a wide variety of physical processes. Using the difference equations approach, we prove(More)
A single-site prospective open-label clinical study with cyclotron-produced sodium 99mTc-pertechnetate (99mTc-NaTcO4) was performed in patients with indications for a thyroid scan to demonstrate the clinical safety and diagnostic efficacy of the drug and to confirm its equivalence with conventional 99mTc-NaTcO4 eluted from a generator. Methods:99mTc-NaTcO4(More)
The histamine H(3) receptor (H(3)R) plays a role in cognition and memory processes and is implicated in different neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, and narcolepsy. In vivo studies of the H(3)R occupancy using a radiolabeled PET tracer would be very useful for CNS drug discovery and development. We report here the(More)
