Radiochemistry AND FDA

Krishan Kumar, Arijit Ghosh
The clinical applications of PET imaging pharmaceuticals have increased tremendously over the last several years since the approval of 18F-FDG (18fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Numerous 18F-labeled target-specific potential imaging pharmaceuticals, based on small and large molecules, have been evaluated in preclinical and clinical settings. 18F-labeling of organic moieties involves the introduction of the radioisotope by C-18F bond formation via a nucleophilic or an electrophilic substitution reaction...

Fluorine-containing nucleoside analogs (NAs) represent a significant class of the US FDA-approved chemotherapeutics widely used in the clinic. The incorporation of fluorine into drug-like agents modulates lipophilic, electronic and steric parameters, thus influencing pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties of drugs. Fluorine can block oxidative metabolism of drugs and the formation of undesired metabolites by changing H-bonding interactions. In this review, we focus our attention on chemical fluorination reagents and methods used in the NAs field, including positron emission tomography radiochemistry...

INTRODUCTION: 5-[(18)F]Fluoro-5-deoxyribose ([(18)F]FDR) 3 was prepared as a novel monosaccharide radiotracer in a two-step synthesis using the fluorinase, a C-F bond forming enzyme, and a nucleoside hydrolase. The resulting [(18)F]FDR 3 was then explored as a radiotracer for imaging tumours (A431 human epithelial carcinoma) by positron emission tomography in a mice model. METHODS: 5-[(18)F]Fluoro-5-deoxyribose ([(18)F]FDR) 3, was prepared by incubating S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) and [(18)F]fluoride with the fluorinase enzyme, and then incubating the product of this reaction, [(18)F]-5'-fluoro-5'-deoxadenosine ([(18)F]FDA) 2, with an adenosine hydrolase to generate [(18)F]FDR 3...

PURPOSE: 6-[(18)F]Fluorodopamine (4-(2-aminoethyl)-5-[(18)F]fluorobenzene-1,2-diol, 6-[(18)F]FDA) is a tracer for imaging sympathetically innervated tissues. Previous electrophilic labelling methods produced 6-[(18)F]FDA with low specific radioactivity (SA) which has limited its wider use. Our aim was to employ electrophilic labelling and increase the SA to around 15 GBq/μmol. We also sought to determine an extensive biodistribution pattern for 6-[(18)F]FDA in rats in order to thoroughly identify tissues with dense sympathetic innervation that were specifically labelled with 6-[(18)F]FDA...

As an analogue of adrenergic neurotransmitter norepinephrine (NE), metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) demonstrates high uptake both in normal sympathetically innervated tissues, such as the heart and salivary glands, and in tumors that express the NE transporter (NET), specifically those of neural crest and neuroendocrine origin. In 1994, (131)I-MIBG, also known as iobenguane I-131 intravenous, received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval as an imaging agent. In 2008, (123)I-MIBG was also approved by FDA as a tumor imaging agent...

Employing an artificial tear preparation composed of six proteins and six lipids as a deposit model, uptake of the lipids 3H-cholesteryl oleate and 14C-dioleoyl phosphatidylcholine was measured on contact lenses representative of the four FDA hydrogel groups and on select RGP lenses. Cholesteryl oleate uptake after 24 h at 37 degrees C generally was less than 1 microgram/lens although occasionally reaching 1-2 micrograms. DuraSoft 3 lenses (Group IV) accumulated the deposits in greater amounts (p = 0.04) with other lens groups not differing significantly from each other...
