Current use and future potential of organometallic radiopharmaceuticals

  title={Current use and future potential of organometallic radiopharmaceuticals},
  author={Roger Schibli and August P. Schubiger},
  journal={European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging},
Contrary to common belief, organometallic compounds exhibit remarkable stability in aerobic and even diluted aqueous solutions. Technetium-sestamibi (Cardiolite) is one of the most prominent examples of this class of compounds routinely used in nuclear medicine. This review summarises the recent progress in labelling of biomolecules with organometallic complexes for diagnostic and therapeutic application in radiopharmacy and exemplifies in detail developments focussing on organometallic… CONTINUE READING
