Abundant, active inflammatory cells are a hallmark of high-risk atherosclerotic plaques. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is a natural nanoparticle composed of phospholipids, cholesterol and apolipoprotein A-I (APOA1), which has been shown to have atheroprotective properties. . The recent development of combined PET/MRI scanners and new advances in radio-labeling technology gives the opportunity to investigate theese properties in vivo. Using a unique set-up combining PET/CT and PET/MRI, we non-invasively assess the pharmacokinetics, distribution, metabolism and turnover of 89Zr-HDL’s in a rabbit model of atherosclerosis.
