Improved Automated Radiosynthesis of [11C]PBR28
AbstractMicroglial activation is commonly identified by elevated levels of the 18 kDa translocator protein (TSPO) in response to several inflammatory processes. [11C]PBR28 is one of the most promising PET tracers to image TSPO in both human and non-human primates. In this study, we optimized the radiolabeling procedure of [11C]PBR28 for higher radiochemical yield, radiochemical purity, and specific activity, which can be easily translated to any automated module for clinical trials. Time-activity curves (TACs) derived from the dynamic PET imaging of male rhesus monkey brains demonstrated that [11C]PBR28 had suitable kinetics with radiotracer accumulation observed in the caudate, putamen, cerebellum, and frontal cortex region.
