Abstract In this work, the cocktail complex 153Sm/177Lu-EDTMP was prepared in high radiochemical purity (more than 99 %) using in house synthesized EDTMP ligand for obtaining a possible synergistic wide range palliative agent. The mixture was administered to wild-type rats and biodistribution data collected after 2 h to 7 days showed at least 70 % accumulation of the radioactivity in the bone tissues. Scintigraphic images were taken from wild-type rats injected with 153Sm/177Lu-EDTMP after 24 h and the biodistribution was shown to be consistent with post-mortem data. A comparative accumulation study was performed for vital organs up to 7 days. 153Sm/177Lu-EDTMP seemed a promising agent for bone pain palliation therapy in skeletal metastases in humans 24 as a novel combined radiopharmaceutical.
