Comparison of free and liposome encapsulated doxorubicin tumor drug uptake and antitumor efficacy in the SC115 murine mammary tumor.


Tumor drug uptake and antitumor efficacy of free and liposomal doxorubicin (DOX) were determined in the SC115 Shionogi mouse mammary tumor. Liposomal DOX systems were prepared by pH gradient-driven drug encapsulation in 170 nm egg phosphatidylcholine/cholesterol (55:45, mol ratio) vesicles. Intravenous injection of free DOX at 6.5 mg/kg, the maximum… (More)
