  • Positron emission tomography imaging of drug-induced tumor apoptosis with a caspase-triggered nanoaggregation probe. Angewandte Chemie (International ed. in English) Shen, B., Jeon, J., Palner, M., Ye, D., Shuhendler, A., Chin, F. T., Rao, J. 2013; 52 (40): 10511-10514

    Abstract

    Drug Design: An (18) F-labeled caspase-3-sensitive nanoaggregation positron emission tomography tracer was prepared and evaluated for imaging the caspase-3 activity in doxorubicin-treated tumor xenografts. Enhanced retention of the (18) F activity in apoptotic tumors is achieved through intramolecular macrocyclization and in situ aggregation upon caspase-3 activation.
