The aim of the present study was to prepare (99m)Tc-folate-glucaric acid and investigate the radiopharmaceutical potential for tumors imaging that over express folate receptor. Folate-glucaric acid was synthesized and the synthesized folate conjugate was confirmed with (1)H NMR and LC-MS/MS methods. Folate-glucaric acid was labeled with (99m)Tc, and its radiolabelling efficiency was found as 96±2.0%. Biodistribution study of (99m)Tc-folate-glucaric acid was carried out in vivo using two groups of female Albino Wistar rats: folate receptor (FR) saturated and unsaturated. Biodistribution study showed that (99m)Tc-folate-glucaric acid indicated high uptake in folate receptor rich tissues such as breast, ovary and uterus. Therefore, (99m)Tc-folate-glucaric acid shows good radiolabeling and biodistribution in FR organs, the radiolabeled conjugate is a reason potentially useful radiopharmaceutical for detection of FR-positive tumors.
