Delivering FLT to the Central Nervous System by Means of a Promising Targeting System: Synthesis, [11C]Radiosynthesis, and in Vivo Evaluation

Abstract : The development of delivery systems to transport some specific radiotracers across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) needs to be investigated for brain imaging. [18F]FLT (3′-deoxy-3′-18F-fluoro-l-thymidine), an analogue substrate of the nucleoside thymidine, has been developed as a proliferation tracer for oncological PET studies. Unfortunately, low-grade brain tumors are poorly visualized due to the low uptake of [18F]FLT in brain tissue, preventing its use in PET imaging to detect brain tumors at an early stage. Based on our previous work, a redox chemical delivery system (CDS) related to Bodor’s strategy was developed to enable the penetration of FLT into the brain. To this end, FLT was covalently linked to a series of lipophilic carriers based on a 1,4-dihydroquinoline structure. To determine the best carrier, various sets of [11C]CDS-FLT were prepared and injected into rats. Pleasingly, in vivo results let us suggest that this CDS is a promising approach to overcome the BBB to target low-grade brain tumors for PET imaging.
