18f dcfbc - a radioconjugate containing a low molecular weight tracer, dcfbc, specific for prostate specific membrane antigen (psma) and labeled with the positron emitting isotope fluorine f 18 with potential prostate tumor imaging upon positron emission tomography (pet). Upon administration, the dcfbc moiety of fluorine f 18 dcfbc specifically targets and binds to the tumor associated antigen psma, thereby allowing the visualization of tumor cells expressing psma upon pet. Psma is a transmembrane glycoprotein highly expressed on malignant prostate epithelial cells and vascular endothelial cells of various solid tumors.
