Development of 4-hexadecyl-4,7-diaza-1,10-decanedithiol (HDD) kit for the preparation of the liver cancer therapeutic agent Re-188-HDD/lipiodol.


PMID 25537725

Abstract

A lipiodol solution of (188)Re-4-hexadecyl-2,2,9,9-tetramethyl-4,7-diaza-1,10-decanedithiol (HTDD) has been successfully developed for liver cancer therapy; however, its preparation requires a multi-step synthesis and it is characterized by a low labeling yield. We synthesized a new compound, 4-hexadecyl-4,7-diaza-1,10-decanedithioacetate (AHDD), without gem dimethyl groups to address these issues. AHDD was formulated into a kit and was labeled with (188)Re. Biodistribution study was performed using normal BALB/c mice. The kit was labeled with (188)Re with a high efficiency (98.8±0.2%). After extraction with lipiodol, the overall yield of (188)Re-HDD/lipiodol was as high as 90.2±2.6%. A comparative biodistribution study of (188)Re-HTDD and (188)Re-HDD was performed in normal mice after intravenous injection. The lungs were identified as the main uptake site due to capillary-blockage. (188)Re-HDD/lipiodol showed a significantly higher lung uptake than that of (188)Re-HTDD/lipiodol (p<0.05). The newly synthesized (188)Re-HDD/lipiodol showed improved radiolabeling yield and biodistribution results compared to (188)Re-HTDD/lipiodol, and may therefore be more suitable for liver cancer therapy.
