Mechanism Of Action Choline C 11 Injection is a radiolabeled analog of choline, a precursor molecule essential for the biosynthesis of cell membrane phospholipids. Choline is involved in synthesis of the structural components of cell membranes, as well as modulation of trans-membrane signaling. Increased phospholipid synthesis (i. e. , increased uptake of choline) has been associated with cell proliferation and the transformation process that occurs in tumor cells.
Description of the Drug: Choline C-11 is an imaging agent used in positron emission tomography imaging for suspected recurrent prostate cancer and non-informative bone scintigraphy, computerized tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging.
