(99m)Tc-E-selectin binding peptide for imaging acute osteomyelitis in a novel rat model.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION In the present study, (99m)Tc-radiolabelled E-selectin binding peptide ((99m)Tc-IMP-178) was investigated for its potential to image acute pyogenic osteomyelitis in a new animal model. Intraindividual comparisons were performed using an irrelevant peptide ((99m)Tc-IMP-100) to demonstrate specificity. METHODS An acute pyogenic osteomyelitis… (More)
