Synthesis and evaluation of a technetium-99m-labeled diethylenetriaminepentaacetate-deoxyglucose complex ([99mTc]-DTPA-DG) as a potential imaging modality for tumors.

Abstract

This study describes the radiolabeling and preliminary biologic testing of diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA)-deoxyglucose (DG) labeled with (99m)Tc. A one-step [(99m)Tc]-DTPA-DG kit was prepared using the stannous chloride reduction method. When (99m)TcO(4)(-) was added to the DTPA-DG kit at room temperature the radiochemical purity 30 min later was… (More)
