ABSTRACT

GSK189254 and its corresponding precursor GSK185071B were synthesized from 3-methoxyphenylacetic acid with 6-chloropyridine-3-carbolic acid or 6-chloronicotinamide in 8 and 7 steps with either 6% or 7% and either 14% or 16% yield, respectively. [(11)C]GSK189254 was prepared from GSK185071B with [(11)C]CH(3)OTf through N-[(11)C]methylation and isolated by HPLC combined with solid-phase extraction (SPE) in 50-60% radiochemical yield based on [(11)C]CO(2) and decay corrected to end of bombardment (EOB), with 370-740 GBq/μmol specific activity at EOB.

    ABSTRACT: J147 was synthesized from 2,4-dimethylphenylhydrazine hydrochloride and 3-methoxybenzaldehyde in 2 steps with 71% overall yield. The precursor desmethyl-J147 was synthesized from 3-hydroxybenzaldehyde and 2,4-dimethylphenylhydrazine hydrochloride in 4 steps with 63% overall yield. [(11)C]J147 was prepared from desmethyl-J147 with [(11)C]CH(3)OTf through O-[(11)C]methylation and isolated by HPLC combined with solid-phase extraction (SPE) in 35-50% radiochemical yield based on [(11)C]CO(2) and decay corrected to end of bombardment (EOB), with 370-740GBq/μmol specific activity at EOB.

    ABSTRACT: Olanzapine and its precursor desmethyl-Olanzapine were synthesized from malononitrile, propionaldehyde, 1-fluoro-2-nitrobenzene, and substituted piperazine in 4, 4, 5, and 5 steps with 35%, 32%, 26%, and 32% overall chemical yield, respectively. [11C]Olanzapine was prepared from desmethyl-Olanzapine with [11C]CH3OTf through N-[11C]methylation and isolated by HPLC combined with solid-phase extraction (SPE) in 40-50% radiochemical yield based on [11C]CO2 and decay corrected to end of bombardment (EOB), with 370-740GBq/μmol specific activity at EOB. The calculated LogP (CLogP) value of [11C]Olanzapine is 3.39.

    ABSTRACT: The signaling molecule histamine plays a key role in the mediation of immune reactions, in gastric secretion, and in the sensory system. In addition, it has an important function as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, acting in pituitary hormone secretion, wakefulness, motor and cognitive functions, as well as in itch and nociception. This has raised interest in the role of the histaminergic system for the treatment and diagnosis of various pathologies such as allergy, sleeping and eating disorders, neurodegeneration, neuroinflammation, mood disorders, and pruritus. In the past 20 years, several ligands targeting the four different histamine receptor subtypes have been explored as potential radiotracers for positron emission tomography (PET). This contribution provides an overview of the developments of subtype-selective carbon-11-labeled and fluorine-18-labeled compounds for imaging in the brain. Using specific radioligands, the H1R expression in human brain could be examined in diseases such as schizophrenia, depression, and anorexia nervosa. In addition, the sedative effects of antihistamines could be investigated in terms of H1R occupancy. The H3R is of special interest because of its regulatory role in the release of various other neurotransmitters, and initial H3R PET imaging studies in humans have been reported. The H4R is the youngest member of the histamine receptor family and is involved in neuroinflammation and various sensory pathways. To date, two H4R-specific 11C-labeled ligands have been synthesized, and the imaging of the H4R in vivo is in the early stage.
