Abstract The favorable nuclear properties of actinium-225 ((225)Ac) have led to proposal of this isotope for use in radioimmunotherapy. In an effort to reduce the toxicity of free (225)Ac, a series of ligands were evaluated for stability in vivo. Loss of (225)Ac from acyclic chelating agents resulted in high liver uptake and poor whole body clearance. The macrocyclic ligands c-DOTA, PEPA, and HEHA were evaluated, and (225)Ac-HEHA showed exceptional stability in vivo. (225)Ac chelated with EDTA, DTPA, DOTA, or PEPA permitted substantial accumulation of the radionuclide to the liver, while the (225)Ac-HEHA complex was essentially excreted within minutes of administration. The preparation of the ligands and radiolabeled complexes and the biodistribution results will be discussed. This article was published in J Med Chem and referenced in Anthropology
