An original study from journal EJNMMI Research: What happens when healthy rats are injected 68 Ge/ 68 Ga generator eluate?

This study evaluates the absorption, distribution, and excretion of Gallium-68 ( 68 Ga) radionuclide after a single intravenous (i.v.) injection of 68 Ge/ 68 Ga generator eluate in healthy rats.

As the most highly accessed article from our journal, this study evaluates the absorption, distribution, and excretion of Gallium-68 ( 68 Ga) radionuclide after a single intravenous (i.v.) injection of 68 Ge/ 68 Ga generator eluate in healthy rats. Human radiation doses were also estimated from the rat data. The researchers found that the generator eluate was slightly higher for the female rats, but that this could be due to the small sample size.

This study was conducted within the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disease, supported by the Academy of Finland, University of Turku, Turku University Hospital and Åbo Akademi University.

More about the journal

Launched in 2010, EJNMMI Research is an exciting journal which aims to be a platform of lively scientific exchange on new findings in basic, translational and clinical research in nuclear medicine and related matters. It addresses research in biology and medicine together with radiochemistry, radiopharmacy, radiophysics, dosimetry and instrumentation.

I am proud to announce that the journal has been has been newly selected for coverage by Thomson Reuters ISI.

EJNMMI Research will receive its first Impact Factor in 2016!

I would like to thank the Editorial Board, reviewers and authors for all of their hard work for contributing to this fully open access journal – and encourage you to submit your next research article to us!
