PURPOSE To investigate the biodistribution and the ability of stealth pH-sensitive liposomes radiolabelled with 99mTc to identify inflammatory regions in a rat focal inflammation model. METHODS Preformed glutathione-containing stealth pH-sensitive liposomes were labelled with 99mTc-hexamethylpropylene amine oxime (99mTc-HMPAO). The 99mTc-HMPAO(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the ability of polymeric nanocapsules (NCs) radiolabeled with technetium-99m D,L-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime (Tc-HMPAO) to identify inflammatory process in an experimental model. METHODS NCs were prepared by interfacial deposition of preformed biodegradable polymer [poly (D,L-lactic acid) (PLA) and PLA-PEG (polyethyleneglycol)](More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the growth response of pigs to a bite block, preparatory to investigating the functional correlates of altered growth. Three miniature pigs (Sus scrofa) wore bite-opening appliances, creating an anterior opening of 18-20 mm, for 42-67 days. Three untreated pigs served as controls. All animals received tantalum(More)
