Effects of citalopram infusion on the serotonin transporter binding of [11C]DASB in healthy controls.

Abstract:

The positron emission tomography (PET) ligand [(11)C]DASB is currently the most widely used imaging agent for quantitative studies of the serotonin transporter (SERT) in human brain. The aim of this work was to assess the effects of an intravenous infusion of 10 mg citalopram, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), before the PET scan on the kinetics of [(11)C]DASB in arterial plasma and in selected brain regions. Four healthy male volunteers underwent two PET scans with a mean of 5...
