Radioactive isotopes of copper, technetium, rhenium and bismuth are of interest in the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic agents. Incorporation of these radioisotopes into suitably designed coordination complexes attached to biologically-active molecules such as peptides and antibodies can provide some degree of specificity for diseased tissue. The synthesis and application of complexes possessing a targeting functionality for activated plaques and cancer cells will be presented.
