INTRODUCTION We synthesized and evaluated (64)Cu-labeled tetraiodothyroacetic acid (tetrac)-conjugated liposomes for PET imaging of tumor angiogenesis, because tetrac inhibits angiogenesis via integrin αVβ3. METHODS Tetrac-PEG-DSPE and DOTA-PEG-DSPE were synthesized and formulated with other lipids into liposomes. The resulting tetrac/DOTA-liposomes were… CONTINUE READING
