Summary  

In order to develop small molecular probes for imaging of Aβ plaques in the brain with Alzheimer’s disease, four benzothiazole derivatives as Aβ probes, 3’-125I-BTA, 3’-125I-CBTA, 3’-125I-BTA-Ac, and 3’-125I-CBTA-Ac were successfully prepared. The four probes displayed the following initial brain uptake: 10.28 %ID/g, 3.62 %ID/g, 3.33 %ID/g and 3.71 %ID/g at 2-minute post iv injection, respectively. The study of quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) indicated that the initial brain uptake was correlated with molecule volume (V m) and dipole moment (D p), but the D p was the main factor. 3’-125I-BTA has the highest initial brain uptake among the four Aβ probes because of the smallest D p.

Summary  

[11C]-choline has been reported as a potential tracer for imaging a variety of human tumors with positron emission tomography (PET). A new labeling technique for [11C]-choline was established depending on parameters optimized, such as reaction time, volume, temperature, and the quantity of DMAE.The synthesis yield was improved from 82.0% to 96.5% (EOB), while the consumption of DMAE precursor decreased from 60 to 2 mg. Absolute yield of [11C]-choline was 2500 MBq for a 10-minute irradiation at15mA, and a total synthesis time of less than 8 minutes from [11C]-CH3I to [11C]-choline.

Abstract  

To investigate the radio impurity in the radiolysis of 18F-FDG at high radiodose and radioconcentrated solutions and develop methods of repurification. The radiolysis of 18F-FDG was analyzed by TLC. The radio-impurity was confirmed by biodistribution and small animal PET/CT studies. 18F-FDG was unstable at high radioconcentrition over 37 GBq/mL or under basic condition. TLC, biodistribution and PET/CT all indicated that the main autoradiolysis byproduct was free fluoride ion. The radiolyzed 18F-FDG was repurified by solid-phase extraction (SPE) column. The repurified 18F-FDG had a radiochemical purity (RCP) of over 99% and significantly lower bone uptake than that was before repurification (P = 0.0003). There was a positive correlation between the recovery yield and the purity of 18F-FDG (R 2 = 0.66).
