We have developed a $$^{186}$$Re-MAG3 complex-conjugated bisphosphonate ($$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP) for the treatment of painful bone metastases. We assumed competitive inhibitors of protein binding to be useful for procuring a favorable biodistribution of $$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP because it has been reported that the concurrent administration of $$^{rm 99m}$$Tc-MAG3 and drugs with high affinity for serum protein enhanced total clearance and tissue distribution. The protein binding of $$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP in a human serum albumin solution was significantly decreased by the addition of ceftriaxone. In the biodistribution experiments, pretreatment with ceftriaxone enhanced the clearance of the radioactivity of $$^{186}$$Re-MAG3-HBP in blood and nontarget tissues but had no effect on accumulation in bone. The findings suggested that the use of protein-binding competitive inhibitors would be effective in improving the pharmacokinetics of radiopharmaceuticals with high affinity for serum protein.
