      4-chloro-2-tert-butyl-5-[2-[[1-[2-[18F]fluroethyl]-1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl]methyl]phenylmethoxy]-3(2H)-pyridazinone ([18F]Fmp2) was synthesized and characterized as potential myocardial perfusion imaging agent with improved stability, high heart uptake, and good target/non-target ratio in PET imaging of Chinese mini-swine.

    2. Development of 153Sm-folate-polyethyleneimine-conjugated chitosan nanoparticles for targeted therapy

      153Sm-CHI-DTPA-g-PEI-FA nanoparticles were prepared in >90% radiochemical purity demonstrating folate receptor specific binding in MCF-7 cells and major renal excretion. The imaging studies in 4T1 tumor-bearing mice demonstrated detectable uptake.

    3. Simple preparation of new [18F]F-labeled synthetic amino acid derivatives with two click reactions in one-pot and SPE purification

      New [18F]fluorinated 1,2,3-triazolyl amino acid derivatives were efficiently prepared from one-pot and two simultaneous click chemistry with simple solid-phase extraction purification. Our new method involving two click reactions in one-pot showed high radiochemical and chemical purity by easy removal of the unused precursor from the simultaneous two click reactions.

    4. Technetium-99 m labeling and evaluation of olsalazine: a novel agent for ulcerative colitis imaging

      O. A. El-Kawy, I. T. Ibrahim and K. Farah

      Article first published online: 1 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/jlcr.3306

      In the current investigation, radio complexation of olsalazine with technetium-99m, its characterization and optimization of the labeling conditions were explored. The computer-generated optimized geometries of the 99mTc-olsalazine were reported, and biodistribution studies were carried out using chemically and microbiologically mice-induced ulcerative colitis models. All the gathered data supported the usefulness of 99mTc-olsalazine as a potential imaging agent for ulcerative colitis.

    5. Improved synthesis and application of [11C]benzyl iodide in positron emission tomography radiotracer production

      The synthesis of [11C]benzyl iodide was investigated and significantly improved and automated. It was applied for labeling of the dopamine D2 antagonist [11C]clebopride to prove its value as a carbon-11 labeling reagent. [11C]Benzyl iodide was synthesized in 11 min from [11C]CO2, according to a one-pot procedure with high yield, purity, and specific activity. This reliable synthesis of [11C]benzyl iodide allows for its broad application in positron emission tomography radiopharmaceutical development.
