The data show that PET imaging with LMI 1195 provides a comparable measure of cardiac sympathetic nerve function and more favorable kinetics for early cardiac imaging as PET imaging with carbon-11 hydroxyephedrine.
Carbon-11 ([sup.11]C) is one of the most common radio-nuclides used for the synthesis of PET radiotracers.
The global radiopharmaceuticals market report estimates the market size (Revenue USD million - 2013 to 2020) for key market segments based on the indications (cardiovascular, oncology, neurological, thyroid, gastrointestinal, etc.), therapeutics (systemic oncology using Iodine, Yttrium, Samarium, Strontium, Rhenium, Lutetium, Erbium; cardiology, neurology, etc.), technologies (SPECT - Technetium, Thallium, Gallium, Iodine, Rhenium, Yttrium; PET - Fludeoxyglucose, Rubidium, Carbon-11 Choline, Nitrogen-13 Ammonia, etc.), generators (Mo-99/Tc-99m, Sr-82/Rb-82, Ge-68/Ga-68, Sr-90/Y-90, and W-188/Re-188 generators), end users (diagnostic centers, hospitals and medical centers), and forecasts growth trends (CAGR% - 2016 to 2020).
The isoquinoline carboxamide PK11195, radiolabelled with tritium [3], carbon-11 [15], iodine-123/125 [16-18], and fluorine-18 [19] have been extensively used as pharmacological probes for studying the function and expression of the TSPO.
NMEs can be radiolabelled with short-lived positron-emitting radioisotopes (e.g., carbon-11, half-life 20 mins; Fluorine-18, half-life 119 mins) or with longer half-lives (e.g., Zirconium-89, half-life 3.3 days; Iodine-124, half-life 100 hours).
Jack Hoppin, PhD, co-founder and managing partner of inviCRO, said, "No other commercial facility in the world can offer translational molecular imaging capabilities from mice to nonhuman primates, and Carbon-11 to Zirconium-89, under one roof.
For instance, even though the detector is buried, some cosmic rays do manage to get through the mountain and into the experiment where they can produce radioactive carbon-11. That sets off the detector in the energy range expected for pep neutrinos.
The contract involves the construction and installation of 4 shielded enclosures for synthesis module for performing radiotracers to be injected in animals from radioisotopes positron emitters short half-life such as hydrofluoric 18 and carbon-11. the scope of this equipment is the manufacture and preparation of suitable doses of radiotracer injection solutions containing either fluorine-18 or carbon-11 as radioisotope.
