    The fully automated 2-step radiosynthesis of the tau PET imaging agent, fluorine-18 labelled 6-(fluoro)-3-(1H-pyrrolo[2,3-c]pyridin-1-yl)isoquinolin-5-amine ([18F]MK-6240), was validated for human use using a commercially available radiosynthesis module.

  2. Preparation of clinical-scale 177Lu-Rituximab: Optimization of protocols for conjugation, radiolabeling, and freeze-dried kit formulation

    Mohini Guleria, Tapas Das, Chandan Kumar, Jeyachitra Amirdhanayagam, Haladhar D. Sarma and Sharmila Banerjee

    Version of Record online: 23 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/jlcr.3493

    Methodology for the formulation of clinical-scale 177Lu-Rituximab using the freeze-dried Rituximab kit, developed in-house, has been described. Biological efficacy of the radiolabeled agent has been studied by in vivo pharmacokinetic evaluation and in vitro cell binding studies.

  3. Synthesis of Two C-14 labeled Cathepsin C Inhibitors; the Use of a Cyanide to Displace a Benzotriazole

    Lee Kingston, Jonas Bergare, Hans Lönn, Cecilia Ericsson, Gunnar Grönberg, Song Chen and Charles S. Elmore

    Accepted manuscript online: 21 MAR 2017 06:20PM EST | DOI: 10.1002/jlcr.3502

  4. Synthesis of 1β-hydroxydeoxycholic acid in H-2 and unlabeled forms

    A multistep synthesis of 1-hydroxy deoxycholic acid and a D4-labeled version were initiated. After difficulties were encountered, a biocatalyzed approach was also investigated and was found to be much more rapid and efficient for the small-scale manufacture of the target compounds.

  5. Development of a novel, fibrin-specific PET tracer
