198Au(I)-labelled gold-chloroquine complex [198Au(PPh3)(CQ)]PF6 has been prepared for the enhancement of antimalarial action against chloroquine-resistant strains of Plasmodium falciparum of recently reported [Au(PPh3)(CQ)]PF6. [198Au(PPh3)(CQ)]PF6 was synthesized via 3-step route starting with irradiated in the reactor for 2 hours Au foil and purified on Sep-Pak® C18 cartridge. Specific activity of the complex was 1.5 mCi/mg. The possibility of using metal complexes radiolabelled with therapeutic radioisotopes for treatment of chloroquine-resistant malaria is discussed.
