Synthesis and application of configured 18 19F FDGs Excerpt :

Positron emission tomography (PET) is a non-invasive imaging method that renders three-dimensional images of tissue that selectively has taken up a radiolabelled organic compound, referred to as a radiotracer. This excellent technique provides clinicians with a tool to monitor disease progression and to evaluate how the patient respond to treatment. The by far most widely employed radiotracer in PET is called 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose ([18F]FDG), which is often referred to as the golden standard in PET. From a molecular perspective, [18F]FDG is an analogue of glucose where a hydroxyl group has been replaced with a radioactive fluorine atom (18F). It is well known that covalent attachment of carbohydrates (i.e., glycosylation) to biomolecules tend to improve their properties in the body, in terms of; improved pharmacokinetics, increased metabolic stability and faster clearance from blood and other non-specific tissue. It is therefore natural to pursuit the development of a [18F]fluoroglycosylation method where [18F]FDG is chemically conjugated to a ligand with high affinity for a given biological target (e.g., tumors or disease-associated protein aggregates). This thesis describes a novel [18F]fluoroglycosylation method that in a simple and general manner facilitate the conjugation of [18F]FDG to biological ligands using click chemistry. The utility of the developed [18F]fluoroglycosylation method is demonstrated by radiolabelling of curcumin, thus forming a tracer that may be employed for diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. Moreover, a set of oligothiophenes were fluoroglycosylated for potential diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease but also for other much rarer protein misfolding diseases (e.g., Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and systemic amyloidosis). In addition, the synthesis of a series of 19F-fluoroglycosylated porphyrins is described which exhibited promising properties not only to detect but also to treat melanoma cancer. Lastly, the synthesis of a set of 19F-

Novel Bifunctional Compounds as Theranostic Agents for Alzheimer s Disease Excerpt :

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most prevalent neurodegenerative disease, currently affecting 5 million in the US and 25 million population worldwide. Unfortunately, there is no treatment for AD, and its accurate diagnosis requires a detailed post-mortem examination of the brain. The formation of extracellular amyloid plaques containing the amyloid [beta] (A[beta]) peptide is one of the pathological hallmarks in the brains of Alzheimer's patients. In addition, numerous studies show that the metal ions can interact with the A[beta] peptides and affect the aggregation process dramatically, especially for copper ions that can stabilize the A[beta] oligomers, leading to high neurotoxicity.In this regard, we developed a series of novel bifunctional molecules that have high binding affinity with various A[beta]42 species and strong metal-binding ligands to modulate the interaction of copper ions with A[beta]42 species to alleviate the Cu2+-induced A[beta]42 cytotoxicity. Different A[beta] binding fragments, bis-styryl stilbene and benzofuran derivatives, were synthesized successfully and modified by adding strong metal-binding ligand through the Mannich reaction. Several in vitro assays were performed to evaluate the ability to quench ROS and attenuate the cytotoxicity of Cu2+-induced A[beta] species. Moreover, immunostaining studies were also employed to see the binding specificity of the compounds. The fluorescence images show that most of the bifunctional compounds can bind to the amyloid plaques specifically. More interestingly, some of the compounds show high binding specificity of soluble A[beta] oligomers, confirming by the oligomer-specific antibody labeling.Furthermore, the novel bifunctional compounds were also evaluated as PET imaging agents for AD. Taking advantage of the high binding affinity with Cu2+, the developed bifunctional compounds were preloaded with 64Cu, and these 64Cu complexes were evaluated to be potential PET imaging agents for Alzheimer's Dise

Neurodegenerative diseases represent a very large group of heterogeneous disorders affecting specific subtypes of neurons in the brain. This book contributes insight both to the awareness of the brain and its neurodegenerative states. The chapters present current knowledge regarding genetics, molecular mechanisms, and new therapeutic strategies against neurodegenerative disorders. The book is intended to serve as a source to aid clinicians and researchers in the field, and also life science readers to increase their understanding and awareness of the clinical correlations, genetic aspects, neuropathological findings, and current therapeutic interventions in neurodegenerative diseases. I believe that this book will enlighten the curiosity for neurodegeneration and also encourage researchers to work on potentially effective molecular therapies for still mysterious neurodegenerative disorders.

Nanotheranostics for Cancer Applications Excerpt :

This book is the first to focus specifically on cancer nanotheranostics. Each of the chapters that make up this comprehensive volume is authored by a researcher, clinician, or regulatory agency member known for their expertise in this field. Theranostics, the technology to simultaneously diagnose and treat a disease, is a nascent field that is growing rapidly in this era of personalized medicine. As the need for cost-effective disease diagnosis grows, drug delivery systems that can act as multifunctional carriers for imaging contrast and therapy agents could provide unique breakthroughs in oncology. Nanotechnology has enabled the development of smart theranostic platforms that can concurrently diagnose disease, start primary treatment, monitor response and initiate secondary treatments if required. In oncology, chemotherapeutics have been routinely used. Some drugs have proven effective but all carry risks of adverse side effects. There is growing interest in using remotely triggered drug delivery systems to limit cytotoxicity in the diseased area. This book reviews the use of theranostic nanoparticles for cancer applications over the past decade. First, it briefly discusses the challenges and limitations of conventional cancer treatments, and presents an overview of the use of nanotechnology in treating cancer. These introductory chapters are followed by those exploring cancer diagnosis and a myriad of delivery methods for nanotherapeutics. The book also addresses multifunctional platforms, treatment monitoring, and regulatory considerations. As a whole, the book aims to briefly summarize the development and clinical potential of various nanotheranostics for cancer applications, and to delineate the challenges that must be overcome for successful clinical development and implementation of such cancer theranostics.
