Sigma receptors are overexpressed in a variety of human tumors, making them potential targets for radionuclide receptor therapy. We have previously synthesized and evaluated $$^{131}$$I-labeled (+)-2-[4-(4-iodophenyl)piperidino]cyclohexanol [(+)-[$$^{131}$$I]pIV], which has a high affinity for sigma receptors. Therefore, (+)-[$$^{131}$$I]pIV significantly inhibited tumor cell proliferation in tumor-bearing mice. In the present study, we report the synthesis and the in vitro and in vivo characterization of (+)-[$$^{211}$$At]pAtV, an $$^{211}$$At-labeled sigma receptor ligand, that has potential use in $$alpha$$-radionuclide receptor therapy. The lipophilicity of (+)-[$$^{211}$$At]pAtV was similar to that of (+)-[$$^{125}$$I]-pIV. Uptake of DU-145, prostate cancer cell lines, and the biodistribution patterns in DU-145 tumor-bearing mice at 1 h post-injection were also similar between (+)-[$$^{211}$$At]pAtV and (+)-[$$^{125}$$I]-pIV. Namely, (+)-[$$^{211}$$At]pAtV demonstrated high uptake and retention in tumor via binding to sigma receptors.
