Radioiodobenzamides are the best-known agents under study for the diagnosis of cutaneous melanoma and its metastases. We report the synthesis of a new BAT derivative radiopharmaceutical in which radioiodine is replaced by 99m-technetium. The cyclic intermediary methyl 4-[3-(4,4,7,7-tetramethyl-5,6-dithia-2, 9-diazacyclodecyl)-2-oxapropyl]benzoate (5) occurred in two different conformations identified by spectroscopic analysis. The final BAT ligand was radiolabeled using the nitridotechnetium core by a ligand-exchange reaction. Two different complexes were purified. After macroscopic 99-technetium synthesis, syn and anti isomers were identified. The global radiochemical yield was over 80%. The biodistribution of these two complexes was evaluated in mice bearing murine B16 melanoma. Extensive liver and kidney uptake was observed, but the benzamide tropism for the tumor was partially preserved.

Blood Brain Barrier

The blood brain barrier is a border that separates blood from cerebrospinal fluid. Discover the latest search on this highly selective semipermeable membrane here.

Blood Brain Barrier Chips

The blood brain barrier (BBB) is comprised of endothelial cells that regulate the influx and outflux of plasma concentrations. Lab-on-a-chip devices allow scientists to model diseases and mechanisms such as the passage of therapeutic antibodies across the BBB. Discover the latest research on BBB chips here.
