Rhenium-186-1-hydroxyethylidene-1,1-diphosphonate ($$^{186}$$Re-HEDP) has been used for the palliation of metastatic bone pain. Delayed blood clearance and high gastric uptake of radioactivity have been observed upon injection, due to the instability of $$^{186}$$Re-HEDP in vivo. In this study, on the basis of the concept of bifunctional radiopharmaceuticals, we designed a stable $$^{186}$$Re-mercaptoacetylglycylglycylglycine (MAG3) complex-conjugated bisphosphonate ($$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP). After purification by HPLC, $$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP was synthesized with a radiochemical purity of over 95%. In biodistribution experiments, the radioactivity level of$$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP in bone was significantly higher than that of $$^{186}$$Re-HEDP. Blood clearance of $$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP was faster than that of $$^{186}$$Re-HEDP. In addition, the gastric accumulation of $$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP radioactivity was lower than that of $$^{186}$$Re-HEDP. In conclusion, $$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP is expected to be a useful radiopharmaceutical for the palliation of metastatic bone pain.
