Assessment of atherosclerotic plaques in the rabbit abdominal aorta with interleukin-8 monoclonal antibody-targeted ultrasound microbubbles


In this study, we aimed to prepare a neovascularization-relevant inflammatory cytokine-targeted ultrasound contrast agent and apply it in the ultrasound imaging of atherosclerotic plaque. An interleukin-8 (IL-8) monoclonal antibody was conjugated to SonoVue microbubbles using the N-succinimidyl-3-(2-pyridyldithio)propionate cross-linking method. Then, a… (More)
