fluorine F 18 SKI-249380 
A radioconjugate composed of a derivative of the multi-targeted kinase inhibitor dasatinib conjugated to the radioisotope fluorine F 18, with potential imaging activity during positron emission tomography (PET). Upon administration of fluorine F 18 SKI-249380, the SKI-249380 moiety targets and binds to Bcr/Abl, SRC-family protein-tyrosine kinases, c-Kit and platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR). Upon binding, the fluorine F 18 moiety allows PET imaging of tumor cells and can be used as a tracer for the biodistribution of dasatinib. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.
Synonyms:[18F] SKI-249380
Chemical structure:[18F]-N-(2-chloro-6-methylphenyl)-2-(6-(4-(2-fluoroethyl)piperazin-1-yl)-2-methylpyrimidin-4-ylamino)thiazole-5-carboxamide
