68Ga-DOTANOC: a first compound for PET imaging with high affinity for somatostatin receptor subtypes 2 and 5


Existing somatostatin-based radiotracers (e.g. In-DOTA TOC) have sole affinity for somatostatin receptor subtype 2 (sst2). This represents a drawback, given that sst1–5 have been shown to be over-expressed in different tumours, alone or concomitantly [1]. Our goal, therefore, was to develop radiopeptides with broader receptor subtype profiles. Ga-DOTANOC is… (More)
