  • Publication number: 20210220490
    Abstract: Conformationally restricted cyanine fluorophores, as well as methods of making and using the compounds, are described. The conformationally restricted cyanine fluorophores have a chemical structure according to Formula I, or a stereoisomer or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof: wherein A is and wherein each “*” designates an attachment point of A.
    Type: Application
    Filed: March 10, 2021
    Publication date: July 22, 2021
    Applicant: The United States of America, as represented by the Secretary, Department of Health and Human Servic
    Inventors: Martin J. Schnermann, Megan S. Michie
  • Publication number: 20210179597
    Abstract: Cyanine fluorophores including a nine-carbon polymethine bridge are disclosed. The cyanine fluorophores have absorbance and/or emission maxima in the near-infrared (NIR) and short-wave infrared (SWIR) wavelength ranges. Methods of making and using the cyanine fluorophores are also disclosed. The compounds are useful in fluorescence imaging, more particularly in cancer treatment.
