Comparison of tumor neovasculature-targeted paramagnetic nanoliposomes for MRI in mice xenograft models.

INTRODUCTION Neovasculature imaging is a promising approach for tumor diagnosis. We constructed tumor neovasculature targeted paramagnetic nanoliposomes with RGD10, F56, and K237 peptides, which can bind to Integrin αvβ3 and VEGFR-1, VEGFR-2, respectively, and compared their potential value as MRI contrast agents for detecting small tumors in animal models… CONTINUE READING
