Peptides binding, in vivo, with mouse lung adenocarcinoma, were selected from a peptide phage library containing above 100 million of different permutations. The selected phages carrying specific peptides accumulated in the tumor node, after intravenous injections made in A/Sn mice with induced adenocarcinoma, and persisted there even in 24 h after injections; whereas, they were detected in small quantities or not detected at all in other tissues (e.g. lungs and muscles). The selected bacteriophages were shown to accumulate not only in the primary tumor node but also in the lung with multiple metastases. Finally, amino acid sequences of exposed peptides were defined.
