Abstract

[A(14)-*i]iodoinsulin was prepared for studies to assess the suitability of labeled iodoinsulin for positron emission tomography (PET). Iodine-125 was used to establish the methods and for preliminary studies in rats. Further studies and PET scanning in rats were carried out using iodino-124. Tissue and plasma radioactivity was measured as the uptake index (UI = {cpm.(g tissue)(-1)}/{cpm injected.(g body weight)(-1)}) at 1 to 40 min after intravenous injection of either [A(14)-I-125]iodoinsulin or [A(14)-I-124]iodoinsulin. For both radiotracers, initial clearance of radioactivity from plasma was rapid (T-1/2 similar to 1 min), reaching a plateau (UI = 2.8) at similar to 5 min which was maintained tot, 35 min. Tissue biodistributions of the two radiotracers were comparable; at 10 min after injection, UI for myocardium was 2.4, liver, 4.0, pancreas, 5.4, brain, 0.17, kidney, 22, lung, 2.3, muscle, 0.54 and fat, 0.28. Predosing rats with unlabelled insulin reduced the UI for myocardium (0.95), liver (1.8), pancreas (1.2) and brain (0.08), increased that for kidney (61) but had no effect on that for lung (2.5), muscle (0.50) or fat (0.34). Analysis of radioactivity in plasma demonstrated a decrease of [I-125]iodoinsulin associated with the appearance of labeled metabolites; the Percentage of plasma radioactivity due to [I-125]iodoinsulin was 40% at 5 min and 10% at 10 min. The heart, liver and kidneys were visualized using [I-124]iodoinsulin with PET. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Inc. All rights reserved.
