Abstract: Necrosis is a form of cell death that occurs in a variety of pathological conditions but can also be the result of therapy in cancer treatment. A radiotracer that could image necrotic cell death using PET could therefore be a useful tool to provide relevant information on the disease activity or therapeutic efficacy and assist in diagnosis and therapy management of several disorders. Pamoic acid derivatives have previously been reported to show a selective uptake in tissue undergoing cellular death via necrosis. In this study 4,4'-methylene-bis(2-hydroxy-3-naphthoic hydrazide) (pamoic acid bis-hydrazide) was conjugated to the macrocyclic ligand DOTA and labeled with the generator produced positron emitter (68)Ga. The resulting complex ((68)Ga-bis-DOTA-PA; (68)Ga-3) was evaluated as a potential radiotracer for imaging tissues undergoing cellular death via necrosis.
