The noninvasive imaging of MMP activity in vivo could have a high impact in basic research as well as in clinical applications. This approach can be established using radiolabeled MMP inhibitors (MMPIs) as tracers for the detection of activated MMPs by means of PET. However, the complexity of diseases associated with dysregulated MMP expression necessitates the imaging of distinct MMPs or MMP subgroups to distinguish their individual role in specific diseases. To this end, selective and potent MMP-13 inhibitors based on a N,N′-bis(benzyl)pyrimidine-4,6-dicarboxamide core have been synthesized and successfully radiolabeled with carbon-11, fluorine-18, and gallium...
