Abstract

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP), strongly assocd. pathogenic markers of cancer, have undergone extensive drug development programs. Marimastat, a noncovalent MMP inhibitor, was conjugated with FITC to label cellular metalloproteinase cancer targets in MDA-MB-231 cells in vitro. Punctate localization of active transmembrane MMP14 was obsd. For mol.-targeted positron emission tomog. imaging of syngeneic 67NR murine mammary carcinoma in vivo, marimastat was 18F-labeled using a shelf-stable arylboronic ester conjugate as a captor for aq. [18F]fluoride in a novel, rapid one-step reaction at ambient temp. [18F]Marimastat-aryltrifluoroborate localized to the tumors, with labeling being blocked in control animals first loaded with >10-fold excess unlabeled marimastat. The labeled drug cleared primarily via the hepatobiliary and gastrointestinal tract, with multiple animals imaged in independent expts., confirming the ease of this new labeling strategy.
