Abstract

Two [19F]F-l-DOPA (F-DOPA) new β-cyclodextrin (CD)-based dosage forms (FA and FB, respectively) have been studied and their physico-chemical and pharmacological features determined to overcome the administration site reactions showed by the currently used [18F]F-l-DOPA formulation (IASOdopa®) to perform PET-CT diagnosis in oncology (neuroendocrine tumors) and neurological (Parkinson’s disease) field. Chemical stability of FA and FB was found to be longer than IASOdopa® by adding the thiol-antioxidant agent, L-Cysteine. 1H and 19F NMR investigations suggest the formation of an inclusion complex of F-DOPA with β-CD. In vitro experiments on the effects of FA and FB on mouse skeletal muscle fibers and on the human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y and embryonal kidney tsA201 cell lines viability showed that FA was the most performant formulation compared to F-DOPA solutions. In vivo tolerability tests of FA on adult male rat showed no significant effects on body weight and no change in their dried organs weight. In addition, their metabolic and physiological parameters were not affected. In conclusion, [18F]F-l-DOPA, formulated as FA, constitutes a promising dosage form for PET-CT diagnosis of both neuroendocrine tumors and Parkinson’s disease.
