Title: Technetium-99m labeled peptides for diagnostic imaging
Abstract:This invention relates to reagents, radiolabeled reagents and methods for producing such reagents and radiolabeled reagents. Specifically, the invention relates to technetium-99m (Tc-99m) labeled peptides that specifically bind to sites of infection, inflammation, thrombosis, atherosclerosis and neoplastic growth in vivo, methods and kits for making such peptides, and methods for using such peptides to image sites in a mammalian body.
Inventor(s): Dean; Richard T. (Bedford, NH)
Assignee: Diatide, Inc. (Londonderry, NH)
Filing Date:Dec 07, 1995
Application Number:08/505,318
Claims:1. A reagent comprising a peptide selected from the group consisting of

PLY.Orn.Orn.II.Orn.Orn.LLES (SEQ ID NO.: 26) and QAPLYKKIIKKLLES (SEQ ID NO.: 27), said peptide being covalently linked to a radiolabel-binding moiety selected from the group consisting of:

(a)

wherein Cp is a protected cysteine and (aa) is an .alpha.- or .beta.-amino acid;

(b) a radiolabel-binding moiety comprising a single thiol having a formula

wherein

A is H, HOOC, H.sub.2 NOC, (peptide)-NHOC, (peptide)-OOC or R.sup.4 ;

B is H, SH, --NHR.sup.3, --N(R.sup.3)-(peptide), or R.sup.4 ;

X is H, SH, --NHR.sup.3, --N(R.sup.3)-(peptide) or R.sup.4 ;

Z is H or R.sup.4 ;

R.sup.1, R.sup.2, R.sup.3 and R.sup.4 are independently H or lower straight or branched chain or cyclic alkyl;

n is 0, 1 or 2; and

where B is --NHR.sup.3 or --N(R.sup.3)-(peptide), X is SH, and n is 1 or 2;

where X is --NHR.sup.3 or --N(R.sup.3)-(peptide), B is SH, and n is 1 or 2;

where B is H or R.sup.4, A is HOOC, H.sub.2 NOC, (peptide)-NHOC, (peptide)-OOC, X is SH, and n is 0 or 1;

where A is H or R.sup.4, then where B is SH, X is --NHR.sup.3 or --N(R.sup.3)-(peptide) and where X is SH, B is --NHR.sup.3 or --N(R.sup.3)-(peptide);

where X is H or R.sup.4, A is HOOC, H.sub.2 NOC, (peptide)-NHOC, (peptide)-OOC and B is SH;

where Z is methyl, X is methyl, A is HOOC, H.sub.2 NOC, (peptide)-NHOC, (peptide)-OOC, B is SH and n is 0; and wherein the thiol moiety is in the reduced form;

(c) ##STR5## wherein X=H or a protecting group;

(amino acid)=any amino acid;

(d) ##STR6## wherein X=H or a protecting group;

(amino acid)=any amino acid;

(e) ##STR7## wherein each R.sup.5 is independently H, CH.sub.3, or C.sub.2 H.sub.5 ;

each (pgp).sup.S is independently a thiol protecting group or H;

m, n and p are independently 2 or 3;

A=linear or cyclic lower alkyl, aryl, heterocyclyl, a combination thereof or a substituted derivative thereof; and

(e) ##STR8## wherein each R.sup.5 is independently H, lower alkyl having 1 to 6 carbon atoms, phenyl, or phenyl substituted with lower alkyl or lower alkoxy;

m, n and p are independently 1 or 2;

A=linear or cyclic lower alkyl, aryl, heterocyclyl, a combination thereof or a substituted derivative thereof;

V=H or --CO-peptide;

R.sup.6 =H or peptide;

and wherein when V=H, R.sup.6 =peptide and when R.sup.6 =H, V=--CO-peptide.

2. A reagent according to claim 1 for preparing a medicament for imaging a site within a mammalian body, the site being selected from the group consisting of a site of infection, a site of inflammation, a site of thrombosis, a site of atherosclerosis and a site of neoplastic growth.

3. A composition comprising a peptide having a formula:

4. A composition comprising a peptide having a formula:

5.

5. A composition comprising a peptide having a formula:

6. A composition comprising a peptide having a formula:

7. A composition comprising a peptide having a formula:

8. A composition comprising a peptide having a formula:
