Method for radioisotopic detection and localization of inflammation in a host

Image Number 9 for United States Patent #5811073.

A method for detecting and localizing the lesions of bacterial and sterile inflammations in a host is disclosed. The method permits in vivo detection and localization of inflammation within 1 to 2 hours of the administration of a radiopharmaceutical agent to the host according to the method of the invention. The radiopharmaceutical agents for use in the method are nucleosides and nucleotides labeled with a radioisotope. The radioisotopes for use in the radiopharmaceutical agents are gamma emitters (preferably halogen gamma emitters) and positron emitters. The radiopharmaceutical agents are administered by parenteral routes, preferably in a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.
