99mTc-labeling of colchicine using [99mTc(CO)3(H2O)3]+ and [99mTc triple bond N]2+ core for the preparation of potential tumor-targeting agents.


Multidrug resistance (MDR) mediated by over-expression of P-glycoprotein (Pgp) is one of the major causes of failure of chemotherapy in cancer treatment. Colchicine, a naturally occurring alkaloid, is a Pgp substrate and acts as an antimitotic agent by binding to microtubules. Hence, Colchicine and its analogues radiolabeled with 99mTc may have potential… (More)
