Systematically characterizing a PET radioligand: The full [11C]SB207145 story

Here we will share with you how Cimbi has completed a set of studies aimed at systematically characterizing a PET radioligand known as [11C]SB207145, which binds to the serotonin type 4 receptor (5-HT4R). From the determination of how to quantify the signal from [11C]SB207145 PET scans to initial evidence that it may also represent a proxy for inter-individual differences in brain serotonin levels, the collaborative effort across research groups within Cimbi underscore its abilities to move biomedical research forward.

From molecule to man: The full Cimbi-36 story

Developed through medicinal chemistry, radiochemistry, and animal studies, 2012 was the year where our first “Cimbi”-compound, [11C]Cimbi-36, was taken into humans and tested in healthy volunteers. This milestone builds on several years of development and represents a huge achievement for the center.
