The article that following the completion of a regulatory inspection of Ubichem UK in July 2010, the company has been approved for the supply of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) radiolabelled active pharmaceutical ingredients (API). According to managing director of Ubichem Research Jozsef Repasi, the approval allows the company to supply radiolabelled materials for use in human clinical trials.

    Thallous (201Tl) chloride is a single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) tracer mainly used for assessing perfusion and viability of myocardial tissue. 201Tl emits X-rays around 72 keV and gammas at 167 keV, and has a half-life of 73 h. Regulations allow an intrinsic contamination up to...

    201Tl has been extensively used for myocardial perfusion and viability assessment. Unlike 99mTc-labelled agents, such as 99mTc-sestamibi and 99mTc-tetrofosmine, the regional concentration of 201Tl varies with time. This study is intended to validate a kinetic modelling approach for in vivo...
