TAT-11: Investigation of Monocarbon Carboranes as Pendant Groups for Labeling Small Molecules with Astatine-211

Ottawa, ON, Canada (UroToday.com) Dr. Li motivated the search for new labeling compounds by noting that previous experiences with Biotin as a carrier were not very successful since it exited the body before saturating the tumor. As alternatives, Dr. Li described the development of two monocarbon carboranes. One of these, 1-(p-Bz)-closo-CB9H8-OH, when labeled with At211 provides high radiochemical yields in vivo stability is being evaluated.
