A phase I clinical study of 99mTc-L,L-ethyl cysteinate dimer (99mTc-ECD) was carried out in 3 normal volunteers. There was no significant change in vital signs and laboratory parameters attributing to the radiopharmaceutical. 99mTc-ECD was rapidly taken up by the brain, reaching the maximum peak activity within 1 min after the injection and remained relatively constant over several hours. The brain uptake of 99mTc-ECD at 5 min was 5.4 +/- 0.5% which decreased to 5.0 +/- 0.3% by 65 min. 99mTc… CONTINUE READING
