  • Translation of new 18F-fluorination reactions to produce radiotracers for human positron emission tomography (PET) imaging is rare because the chemistry must have useful scope and the process for 18F-labeled tracer production must be robust and simple to execute. The application of transition metal mediators has enabled impactful 18F-fluorination methods, but to date none of these reactions have been applied to produce a human-injectable PET tracer. In this article we present chemistry and process innovations that culminate in the first production from [ 18F]fluoride of human doses of [ 18F]5-fluorouracil, a PET tracer for cancer imaging in humans. Here, the firstmore » preparation of nickel σ-aryl complexes by transmetalation from arylboronic acids or esters was developed and enabled the synthesis of the [ 18F]5-fluorouracil precursor. Routine production of >10 mCi doses of [ 18F]5-fluorouracil was accomplished with a new instrument for azeotrope-free [ 18F]fluoride concentration in a process that leverages the tolerance of water in nickel-mediated 18F-fluorination.« less
  • We have developed (S)-N-[(1-allyl-2-pyrrolidinyl)methyl]-5-(3-{sup 18}F-fluoropropyl)-2-methoxybenzamide ({sup 18}F-desmethoxyfallypride) as a fluorine-18 radiotracer with properties analogous to that of {sup 11}C-raclopride. In vitro experiments in rat brain homogenates showed an association rate constant of 2.1X10{sup 8} M{sup -1} min{sup -1} and a dissociation rate constant of 0.073 min{sup -1}. High striatal uptake (up to 0.08% injected dose/cc) of {sup 18}F-desmethoxyfallypride in rhesus monkeys was observed in PET experiments. The radiotracer cleared from the striata with a dissociation rate of 1.80X10{sup -2} min{sup -1}. Striatum to cerebellum ratios peaked at 3.0 in 30 min after which they decreased steadily. Intravenously administered haloperidol displacedmore » specifically bound {sup 18}F-desmethoxyfallypride with a k{sub off} of 0.058 min{sup -1}. Synaptic dopamine released by the treatment of the monkeys with a d-amphetamine increased the dissociation rate of {sup 18}F-desmethoxyfallypride to 0.83 min{sup -1} thus reducing specifically bound {sup 18}F-desmethoxyfallypride by 56% over a period of 42 mins compared to a reduction of only 20% in controls during this time period. The sensitivity of {sup 18}F-desmethoxyfallypride towards competition with dopamine should make this radiotracer useful in PET studies to evaluate in vivo pharmacological effects of various agents that alter levels of endogenous dopamine. 27 refs., 8 figs.« less
