Dr. Naqvi is a radioanalytical chemist and is working as an associate professor of analytical chemistry in the Department of Chemistry, Government College University, Faisalabad, Pakistan. Advance separation techniques, nuclear analytical techniques and radiopharmaceutical analysis are the main courses that he is teaching to graduate and post-graduate students. In the research area, he is focusing on the development of organic- and biomolecule-based radiopharmaceuticals for diagnosis and therapy of infectious and cancerous diseases. Under the supervision of Dr. Naqvi, three students have completed their Ph.D. degrees and 41 students have completed their MS degrees. He has completed three research projects and is currently working on 2 projects entitled “Radiolabeling of fluoroquinolone derivatives for the diagnosis of deep-seated bacterial infections” and “Radiolabeled minigastrin peptides for diagnosis and therapy of NETs”. He has published about 100 research articles in international reputed journals and 7 book chapters. Pakistan Institute of Nuclear Science & Technology (PINSTECH) Islamabad, Punjab Institute of Nuclear Medicine (PINM), Faisalabad and Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Radiology (INOR) Abbottabad are the main collaborating institutes.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Syed Ali Raza Naqvi

Radioisotopes are widely used in the medical field for imaging and therapy of diseases by themselves or by tagging with other molecules that have the potential to target diseased cells. In imaging protocol, the radioisotope, such as technetium-99m or indium-111, decays through ?-radiation emissions, which are located by a scintigraphic camera (SPECT or PET) in the form of 2/3D image formation of the diseased organ. The other kind of radioisotopes, such as Lutetium-177 or Actinium-225, are those that decay through ?/?-decay, which is due to its valuable linear energy transfer that is in clinical use to eliminate diseased cells. This book will cover valuable information about selected diagnostic and therapeutic radioisotopes along with localization mechanisms of radioisotopes directly or through nanoparticles at diseased cells.
