Abstract

The preparation of technetium-99m aminopolycarboxylate complexes was carried out under anerobic conditions using stannous ions as the reducing agent. Electrophoresis and thin layer chromatography were used for analysis, showing that DTPA, EDTA and 1-methyl-EDTA preparations contained most of the 99m-Tc radioactivity in the chelate form. Kinetic studies showed that binding to 1-phenyl-EDTA was slow. All compounds migrated towards the anode on electrophoresis, enabling separation from free pertechnetate and reduced 99mTc. Quantitative distribution studies in mice and computerized renograms in rabbits showed that renal clearance was the main excretory route, but all compounds were cleared more slowly than 131-hippuran. The presence of the lipophilic phenyl group in the EDTA molecule produced excretion partially by the biliary route. These complexes belong to a series of bifunctional chelates which has the potential to produce new 99mTc-radiopharmaceuticals having the in vivo stability of 99Tc-EDTA.
