2‐18F‐Fluoropropionic acid (18F‐FPA), a fluorinated analog of 11C‐acetate, shows great potential for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of prostate cancer. The present study reports a simple automated synthesis using cartridges purification, which affords 18F‐FPA suitable for human use. Automated synthesis of 18F‐FPA was performed using two‐step one‐pot synthesis procedure, consisting of [18F]fluorination of methyl‐2‐bromopropionate, hydrolysis with sodium hydroxide, and purification with a series of commercial solid‐phase extraction cartridges instead of a high‐performance liquid chromatography system. Automated synthesis of 18F‐FPA was also carried out via the on‐column hydrolysis on the HLB cartridges, using a similar procedure to the automated synthesis of 18F‐fluoro‐2‐deoxy‐ d‐glucose (18F‐FDG). Using one‐pot procedures on the commercial modified PET‐MF‐2V‐IT‐I synthesizer, the final 18F‐FPA solution could be obtained with high uncorrected radiochemical yields (>35%) and radiochemical purity (>95%). For the on‐column hydrolysis procedure, the uncorrected radiochemical yield of 18F‐FPA was 46 ± 7% (n = 5, based on [18F]fluoride) within 36 min and the radiochemical purity was above 95% with the specific activity of 40 GBq/µmol. Automated synthesis of 18F‐FPA by on‐column hydrolysis procedure is similar to the 18F‐FDG synthesis, and it can easily be applied to the automated synthesis of 18F‐FPA on the commercial 18F‐FDG synthesizer.

2‐18F‐Fluoropropionic acid (18F‐FPA) was automated radiosynthesized in two steps with solid‐phase extraction cartridges purification. The automation of the synthesis of the 18F‐FPA with on‐column hydrolysis procedure is well performed in the commercial PET synthesizers for 18F‐FDG.<!--Unmatched element: w:blockFixed-->

Abstract The single radial immunodiffusion assay has been the accepted method for determining the potency of inactivated influenza vaccines since 1978. The world‐wide adoption of this assay for vaccine standardisation was facilitated through collaborative studies that demonstrated a high ... more
Abstract Background Whether morbidity from the 1918‐19 influenza pandemic discriminated by socioeconomic status has remained a subject of debate for 100 years. In lack of data to study this issue recent literature have hypothesized that morbidity was “socially neutral”. Objectives ... more
Smart skin that can respond to external stimuli could have important applications in medicine and robotics. Using only items found in a typical household, researchers have created multi-sensor artificial skin that's capable of sensing pressure, temperature, humidity, proximity, pH, and air ... more
Some doctors may recommend that patients with the flu take acetaminophen, or paracetemol, to relieve their symptoms; however, a new randomized clinical trial found no benefits to the over-the-counter medication in terms of fighting the influenza virus or reducing patients' temperature or ot ... more
