Title:
Assessment of {alpha}v{beta}3 integrin expression after myocardial infarction by positron emission tomography. 
Abstract:
AIMS: The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of a new positron emission tomography (PET) imaging approach using an (18)F-labelled alpha(v)beta(3) integrin antagonist ((18)F-Galacto-RGD) to monitor the integrin expression after myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS: Male Wister rats were subjected to 20 min transient left coronary artery occlusion followed by reperfusion. Autoradiographic analysis and in vivo PET imaging were used to determine myocardial (18)F-Galacto-RGD...    »
