Discovery of [18F]JK-PSMA-7, a novel PET-probe for the detection of small PSMA positive lesions

The prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) expressed by the vast majority of prostate tumors is a promising target for PET imaging.

The newly developed compound [18F]-JK-PSMA-7 is a promising candidate for the high-quality visualization of small PSMA-positive lesions. Excellent preclinical imaging properties justify further preclinical and clinical studies with this tracer.
