The aim of this study is to compare [18F]FPEB and [18F]FDEGPECO for the quantification of mGlu5 receptors in rodent brains. After preparation of radioligands, dynamic PET data was acquired for 90min. Estimated non-displaceable binding potential (BPND) values were calculated from the non-invasive Logan's graphical analysis method. Although both radioligands showed similar radiochemical amenability, [18F]FPEB PET showed higher brain uptake and superior binding potential values than those of [18F]FDEGPECO PET (peak brain uptakes in the hippocampus and the striatum: 7.2-8.7 vs. 5.0-6.2, BPND: 7.3-9.6 vs. 0.3-0.4 for [18F]FPEB and [18F]FDEGPECO, respectively). In addition, the target-to-reference ratios for [18F]FPEB is >4 fold than those of [18F]FDEGPECO. From this evidence, we conclude that [18F]FPEB is a superior radioligand for mGlu5 imaging in preclinical studies.
