Of the two 18F-labeled PET ligands currently available to image metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5), [18F]FPEB is reportedly superior because [18F]SP203 undergoes glutathionlyation, generating [18F]-fluoride ion that accumulates in brain and skull. To allow multiple PET studies on the same day with lower radiation exposure, we prepared [11C]FPEB and(More)
We recently developed a novel cannabinoid subtype-1 (CB1) receptor radioligand (11)C-SD5024 for brain imaging. This study aimed to evaluate (11)C-SD5024 both in vitro and in vivo and compare it with the other CB1 receptor ligands previously used in humans, i.e., (11)C-MePPEP, (11)C-OMAR, (18)F-MK-9470, and (18)F-FMPEP-d2. In vitro experiments were performed(More)
The serotonin subtype-4 (5-HT4 ) receptor, which is known to be involved physiologically in learning and memory, and pathologically in Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, and other neuropsychiatric disorders-has few radioligands readily available for imaging in vivo. We have previously reported two novel 5-HT4 receptor radioligands, namely [methoxy-(11)(More)
