UNLABELLED 99mTc(N)-DBODC5 is the lead compound of a new series of monocationic 99mTc(N)-based potential myocardial imaging agents that exhibit original biodistribution properties. This study was addressed to elucidate the mechanisms of distribution, retention, and elimination of this promising 99mTc(N)-agent. METHODS The sex-related in vitro and in vivo(More)
Using the avidin-biotin system as model, we investigate here the effective application of [Tc(N)L(PNP)](+/0) technology (L=N-functionalized cysteine [O(-),S(-)]; PNP=aminodiphosphine) to the preparation of target-specific radiopharmaceuticals. A series of (99m)Tc-nitrido complexes containing functionalized biotin ligands was prepared and their biological(More)
The radiolabeling of the natural octapeptide CCK8, derivatized with a cysteine residue (Cys-Gly-CCK8), by using the metal fragment [99mTc(N)(PNP3)]2+ (PNP3 = N,N-bis(dimethoxypropylphosphinoethyl)methoxyethylamine) is reported. The [99mTc(N)(NS-Cys-Gly-CCK8)(PNP3)]+ complex was obtained according to two methods (one-step or two-step procedure) that gave the(More)
The reactivity of bulky alkylphosphino-thiol ligands (PSH) toward nitride-M(V, VI) (M = Tc/Re) precursors was investigated. Neutral five-coordinate monosubstituted complexes of the type [M(N)(PS)Cl(PPh(3))] (Tc1-4, Re1-2) were prepared in moderate to high yields. It was found that these [M(N)(PS)Cl(PPh(3))] species underwent ligand-exchange reactions under(More)
We report on an efficient procedure for the preparation of [(188)Re(N)(PNP)]-based complexes (where PNP is diphosphinoamine) useful in the development of target-specific radiopharmaceuticals. The radiochemical yield of the compounds was optimized considering such reaction parameters as nature of the nitrido nitrogen donor, reaction times and pH level. The(More)
A general procedure is presented for the preparation of a new class of nitrido asymmetrical Tc-99m complexes containing two different bidentate ligands bound to the same [Tc(N)]2+ core that could be used to design either essential or target specific imaging agents. This procedure is based on the chemical properties of a new monosubstituted(More)

(99m)Tc(N)-DBODC5 is a cationic mixed compound under clinical investigation as potential myocardial imaging agent. In spite of this, analogously to the other cationic (99m)Tc-agents, presents a relatively low first-pass extraction. Thus, modification of (99m)Tc(N)-DBODC(5) direct to increase its first-pass extraction keeping unaltered the favorable imaging(More)
