Title: Radiolabeled2{beta}-carbo-2{prime}(S)-fluoroisopropoxy-3{beta}-(4-iodophenyl)-tropane (FIPIT): Synthesis, characterization and primate imaging of a radioligand for mapping dopamine transporter sites by both PET and SPECT

Abstract

Highly potent and selective dopamine transporter ligands containing both iodine and fluorine are versatile probes for in vivo mapping of dopamine transporter sites in the striatum by PET and SPECT when labeled with fluorine-18 and iodine-123, respectively. Dual labeled biochemical probes are attractive agents since only one set of toxicity and pharmacokinetic analysis may be required for ligand validation for both imaging modalities. Recently, we reported that replacement of the methyl ester of 2{beta}-carbomethoxy-3{beta}-(4-chlorophenyl)tropane with a 2{prime}(R,S)-[F-18]fluoroisopropyl ester affords a highly potent and selective dopamine transporter ligand, 2{beta}-carbo-2{prime}(R,S)- fluoroisopropoxy-3{beta}-(4-chlorophenyl)tropane (FIPCT). FIPCT showed high uptake and retention in the striatum (S) resulting in good S/cerebellum = 3.5 at 125 min post injection in a rhesus monkey. These findings prompted us to synthesize and evaluate the 4-iodo analog, 2{beta}-carbo-2{prime}-(S)-fluoroisopropoxy-3{beta}-(4-iodophenyl)tropane (1) with 1-fluoropropan-2-ol (2) and POC13. These results suggest that [F-18]S-FIPIT is an excellent candidate for mapping of dopamine transporter sites.
