Diagnostic Research Based on DCL™

Background & Overview

Diagnostic Research Based on DCL™

Deuterium-labeled molecules are becoming an important part of various biochemical and biomedical research as well as studying certain aspects of their metabolism. Stable isotopes that do not present a radiation hazard are preferred over radioactive analogs in clinical diagnosis, for example, deuterated phenylalanine analogs can be used to detect hereditary phenylketonuria (PKU), a metabolic A genetic disorder characterized by mutations in the gene for the liver enzyme phenylalanine hydrolase (PAH), rendering it nonfunctional and associated with disturbances in phenylalanine metabolism in an organism.

BOC Sciences' deuterated technology is used in academic centers or commercial research organizations. In specific cases, researchers, clinical pharmacologists and physicians use our technology as a tool in clinical trials, medical diagnostics or clinical pharmacology. We support the development of more powerful diagnostics.

Our Capabilities

We are able to prepare a wide range of deuterated compounds including deuterated carbohydrates, deuterated amino acids without heterocycles or benzene rings, deuterated vitamins, deuterated fatty acids, deuterated heterocycles, deuterated acetic acids or acetate salts, deuterated lactic acid or lactate, deuterated citric acid or citrate, deuterated hydroxybutyric acid or hydroxybutyrate, etc., and use any one or more compositions of these compounds as nuclear magnetic diagnostic reagents. Based on the different levels of metabolism at the lesion site, we then use nuclear magnetic resonance to detect changes in deuterium in the body, thereby diagnosing the condition of the test site.
