PURPOSE We evaluated new (111)In-labeled amino acid derivatives, in which the amino acids are conjugated with1,4,7,10-tetra-azacyclododecane-1,4,7,10-tetraacetic acid (DOTA), 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,7-diacetic acid (DO2A) or 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7-triacetic acid (DO3A). METHODS DOTA-aminoalanine (DOTA-A), DOTA-aminohomoalanine (DOTA-H), DOTA-lysine (DOTA-L), DO2A-alanine (DO2A-A), DO3A-alanine (DO3A-A) and DO3A-homoalanine (DO3A-H) were labeled with (111)In. In vitro… Expand

Preparation and investigation of tumor affinity, uptake kinetic and transport mechanism of iodine-123-labelled amino acid derivatives in human pancreatic carcinoma and glioblastoma cells.
Results of the present investigation indicated that ITIC is not taken up into tumor cells via the common neutral amino acid carrier systems, including the A, L and ASC system, and preloading with naturally occurring L-amino acids failed to stimulate the cellular uptake of the radiopharmaceuticals.

Synthesis and radiopharmacology of O-(2-[18F]fluoroethyl)-L-tyrosine for tumor imaging.
The high in vivo stability of L-FET, its fast brain and tumor uptake kinetics, its low accumulation in nontumor tissue and its ease of synthesis strongly support further evaluation of L-[18F]FET as an amino acid tracer for cerebral and peripheral tumors. Expand
