Hydroxyapatite (HA), a natural constituent of bone, was synthesized. HA particles were radiolabeled with 188Re. Radiolabeling efficiency was ∼95%. In vitro studies showed 5% loss of activity from particles in normal saline over a period of 2 days, whereas a dissociation rate of 9% was observed in human serum albumin.
