BACKGROUND Radiolabeled somatostatin analogs have gained popularity for tumor imaging and have recently been used for the treatment of somatostatin receptor-expressing tumors. We have developed a novel, N-terminally extended, multiply iodinated somatostatin analog, 125I-WOC 4a, that we hypothesize will be a useful tool for the detection of and therapy for… CONTINUE READING
