  • Patent number: 11547767
    Abstract: The invention relates to a novel radiopharmaceutical that inhibits the prostate-specific membrane antigen (iPSMA), containing hydrazinonicotinamide (HYNIC) as a critical chemical group in increasing in the lipophilicity of the molecule for binding to the hydrophobic sites of the PSMA, combined with the conventional use of HYNIC as a chelating agent for radiometal 99mTc, in which the ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDDA) is used to complete the coordination sphere of the radiometal. The novel radiopharmaceutical 99mTc-EDDA/HYNIC-iPSMA detects, with high affinity and sensitivity in vivo, the overexpressed PSMA protein in prostate cancer cells using SPECT molecular imaging techniques in nuclear medicine. The aim of the invention is to provide a novel specific radiopharmaceutical (radiopharmaceutical for molecular targets) for SPECT, with high sensitivity for the detection of tumours with overexpression of PSMA.

  • Patent number: 11439713
    Abstract: The present invention is related to short-term renal injury models and methods for creating these models. The models and methods can be used for identifying, testing or characterizing candidate molecules with respect to their suitability to treat renal injury. The methods comprise a step of inducing, in a test subject, renal injury by administering subcutaneously a bolus of a renal injury inducer, in a dosage sufficiently high to induce renal injury. Different types of readout for renal injury are provided such as albumin creatinine ratio (ACR) determined in a urine sample taken from the subject, or the development of transcutaneous fluorescence after injection of a fluorescent molecule. Based on the readout the degree of renal injury and/or alteration of GFR can be determined.

  • Patent number: 11419953
    Abstract: Gadolinium based contrast agents (GCA) incorporating linear ligand chelation are fundamentally different from GCAs incorporating macrocyclic ligands. The macrocyclic\GCAs are synthesized by pathways characterized by the formation of a sequence of metastable complexes before obtaining the final stable complex. The synthesis of linear GCAs do not form metastable complexes. Commercial macrocyclic GCAs contain unstable metastable complexes. These metastable species are not regulated and quickly release free Gd3+ ions upon administration into the body. Gadolinium based contrast agents with near zero metastable species content and methods of synthesizing the same are disclosed. Gadolinium based contrast agents with long dissociation time in the body, and low free Gd3+ ion formation are obtained using a synthesis method which departs in novel ways from the traditional free Gd3+-based synthesis methods.
