Mechanism Of Action Indium-111 decays by isomeric transition and electron capture to cadmium-111, emitting a gamma ray that can be detected with a gamma ray camera. Following intravenous administration, the lipid-soluble complex is able to penetrate platelet cell membranes. Once inside, Indium detaches from the oxyquinoline complexes and becomes attached to cytoplasmic components.
Description of the Drug: Indium In-111 oxyquinoline is a radiopharmaceutical diagnostic agent used for radiolabeling autologous leukocytes as an adjunct in the detection of inflammatory processes to which leukocytes migrate.
