Liposome Clearance
The clearance rate of liposomal drugs from the circulation is determined by the rate and extent of both drug release and uptake of liposomes by cells of the mononuclear phagocyte system (MPS).Expand

Injection of PEGylated liposomes in rats elicits PEG-specific IgM, which is responsible for rapid elimination of a second dose of PEGylated liposomes.
Steric stabilization of the surface of liposomes by a PEG conjugated lipid results in reduced recognition of the liposomes by the cells of the mononuclear phagocyte system and consequently extendedExpand

We and a Dutch group reported that "empty" PEGylated liposomes (approximately 100 nm) lose their long-circulating characteristic when they are administrated twice in the same animal with certainExpand

Anti-PEG IgM elicited by injection of liposomes is involved in the enhanced blood clearance of a subsequent dose of PEGylated liposomes.
Earlier we reported that PEGylated liposomes lose their long-circulating characteristic when they are administrated twice in the same animal with certain intervals (referred to as the acceleratedExpand

Spleen plays an important role in the induction of accelerated blood clearance of PEGylated liposomes.
It is well known that steric stabilization of the surface of liposomes by a polyethyleneglycol (PEG) conjugated lipid results in reduced recognition of the liposomes by the cells of the mononuclearExpand

Accelerated blood clearance of PEGylated liposomes upon repeated injections: effect of doxorubicin-encapsulation and high-dose first injection.
The "accelerated blood clearance (ABC) phenomenon", causing PEGylated liposomes to be cleared very rapidly from the circulation upon repeated injection, has been reported to occur in rodents andExpand

Accelerated blood clearance of PEGylated liposomes following preceding liposome injection: effects of lipid dose and PEG surface-density and chain length of the first-dose liposomes.
We recently reported that a second dose of polyethylene glycol (PEG) (M.W. 2000)-modified liposomes (mPEG2000-liposomes) is rapidly cleared from the blood and accumulates in the liver when injectedExpand

PEGylated liposomes elicit an anti-PEG IgM response in a T cell-independent manner.
We recently reported that intravenous injections of "empty" PEGylated liposomes without encapsulated or surface coupled proteins elicit a PEG-specific IgM response in rats. In the present study,Expand

Effect of transferrin receptor-targeted liposomal doxorubicin in P-glycoprotein-mediated drug resistant tumor cells.
The over-expression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) has been associated with the development of multidrug resistance (MDR) in cancer cells. In this study, we examined whether transferrin receptor (Tf-R)Expand

Accelerated clearance of PEGylated liposomes in rats after repeated injections.
Polyethylene glycol-modified liposomes (PEGylated liposomes) represent promising carrier systems for therapeutic agents. Herein, we report on a study of the effect of repeated injection of PEGylatedExpand
