Fluorodopa, also known as FDOPA, is a fluorinated form of L-DOPA primarily synthesized as its fluorine-18isotopologue for use as a radiotracer in positron emission tomography (PET).[1] Fluorodopa PET scanning is a valid method for assessing the functional state of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic pathway. It is particularly useful for studies requiring repeated measures such as examinations of the course of a disease and the effect of treatment

In October 2019, Fluorodopa was approved in the United States for the visual detection of certain nerve cells in adult patients with suspected Parkinsonian Syndromes (PS).[2][3]

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Fluorodopa F 18 based on evidence from one clinical trial of 56 patients with suspected PS.[2] The trial was conducted at one clinical site in the United States.[2]

A one-pot two-step synthesis of 6-[18F]fluoro-L-DOPA ([18F]FDOPA) has been developed involving Cu-mediated radiofluorination of a pinacol boronate ester precursor. The method is fully automated, provides [18F]FDOPA in good activity yield (104 ± 16 mCi, 6 ± 1%), excellent radiochemical purity (>99%) and high molar activity (3799 ± 2087 Ci mmol−1), n = 3, and has been validated to produce the radiotracer for human use.

Radiosynthesis of [ 18F]6F-l-DOPA The synthesis of [ 18F]6F-l-DOPA was fully-automated using a General Electric (GE) TRACERLab FXFN synthesis module (Figure S1) loaded as follows: V1: 500 µL 15mg/mL TBAOTf + 0.2 mg/mL Cs2CO3 in water; V2: 1000 µL acetonitrile; V3: 4 µmol Bpin precursor, 20 µmol Cu2+ , 500 µmol pyridine in 1 mL DMF; V4: 0.2 mL 0.25 M ascorbic acid + 0.6 mL 12.1 N HCl; V6: 3 mL acetonitrile; V7: 10 mL 0.9% saline, USP; V8: 2 mL ethanol, USP; Dilution flask: 100 mL acetonitrile ; F18 separation port: QMA cartridge ; C18 port: Strata cartridge.

The present invention relates to an L-dopa precursor compd., a method for producing the same, and a method for producing 18F-labeled L-dopa using the same.  The method of prepg. 18F-labeled L-dopa I using the L-dopa precursor II [A = halogen-(un)substituted alkyl; W, X, Y = independently protecting group] can improve the labeling efficiency of 18F.  After the labeling reaction, sepn. and purifn. steps of the product can be carried out continuously and it can be performed with on-column labeling (a method of labeling through the column).  The final product I, 18 F-labeled L-dopa, can be obtained at a high yield relative to conventional methods.  Further, it has an advantage that it is easy to apply various methods such as bead labeling.
