The first synthesis of a radioactive dye was reported by

Tobin and mbor (79). They prepared zedioactive ditbramo-Trytpan B15*

and dibrame-Eva na Sh braelasting o~tolidine with Br~U and cou

ling the resulting comapound wilth H acid or Chicage acid. An inveosti-

The work of Wbor eand Tobin showed clearly tha determination

of radioactdite compounda la tissues with Geiger counters is both

siapler and more emobt than the chemical or colorimetrie analyrrsi

Sumor-bearing mine receiving thi compound, he was abl to~s determine

the distribution in the animal body. WOhile significant concentrra-

tion of th dye in the tumor was noted, the liver, kidney and spleen

also showed a comparable affinity for th dye.

Yoore (t8) studied the localisa~i~on ofEL fluozesrein in a wide

variety of carcinomas sad earcomas, neing as a criterion of uptake

luorescence under ultraviolet light. Lesions of the central nor

ous system took up the compound with an accuracy ~ofi t ozzler of 90

per cent. The clinical application of this fact wars greatly increased

by incorooration of I'at into the fluorescein molecule thu permitting
measurements to be made outside the skull, quite independent of opera-

tion procedures (L9,*78).

An extensive series of acidic and basic dyee tagged with

radioactive II~ or 8I have been prepared by Wyersrr and are being

investigated for their selective, affinity for various types of trans-

planted and spontaneous mouse tumors (57L58).

of estimation has bee previotusy used, whic involves brirolysis of

ALAF to 2 therenuo a s (AF), dissotisation, and coupling with ar kmnon

naphrthol derivative to gv ar colored compound (86). Mr this method,

Recently the preparation (6) and investigations ($6,86) of

aminmofluaoredC have greatly rexteded our kn~owledges of th

metabolism of 2**ac~reby~lamisnetor (AAF) Among the coDBC1Hri0BS
estaiblished is that 6 per cent of the 8 ingested in thse cetyl*

labeled derivative is expelled as respirartory COI within 6 hoars,

while more than Ir0 per cen was found in the breath afe 88 hers

This shows that descectylation of IAAF in the animal bodyr ca take


The obeseration by Morris e6 al., ($2) ta $L-aMino-

rersion to the tre amine is a necessaryr prelUde to tumor incidence.

Using a dose of 16 ag. AAF per 100 ga. of rat, which wa
comarat~ble to the dose of TSAF, arria and We~talll (56) found that
28-65 per sons nas .iseamted to the w$.ne, as compared with 0.3: per

Yl~et eve i this were the ease, the necessityJ exists for the hydroly

Go the other hand, Morriaet al~. (51r,86) have shown that AAF

AAF (85), it mlar be exrated m~or quick~lyl hence, th tassues are

Fromr the eddenae# available at present, it does not asee

possible to reach a final conclusion An this matter however, the

3. A, synthesis isl described which incorporates radioactive

sulfar (Sas) into the molecules of disedina fluorene-2,7-dsuioaulont

The distribution of radionativity in the tissues of turmo~tearing

mice ftollowing a single injection of this compound ~ws studied at

2=, k and 32-hour intervals. The ratios of concentration~ et5 radio-
activity in trrmor tissue tor the concentration in other tissues were

detewrmied. My comparisoon wibth similar ratios for I -labeled

Tryrpan Bluae and Mil Blue SS, the thorone compound has greatly in-

oreased the ratio of localisation in tumor tissue comapared to livler,

kidney, spleen, blood and rsscole. It offes~ a promising basis upo

which aulfonamido derivatives may be buillt and tested in Sumor

diagnoals an therapy.
