Dr. Miyagishima,
The bromo and fluoro-modified nucleotides have been used to do kinetic
studies. There are mAb which can distinguish between these two halogenated
nucleotides (IU3 and IU4 I think, originally developed by a group in
California system). For instance, you can inject the Br derivative into a
patient, then after some treatment, inject the  fluoronated nucleoside
and... after a lag period, tumor biopsies can be differentially stained to
indicate the effectiveness of the therapy on S-phase index. Again, my memory
of names fails me; but , I believe a woman at Rush in Chicago has published
some of this work several years ago.
