MION-ASF: biokinetics of an MR receptor agent.


Receptor-directed MR contrast agents are currently being designed to improve sensitivity and specificity of MR imaging and to provide for functional MR imaging. In the current study we have synthesized a conjugate of asialofetuin (ASF), a bovine plasma protein with a known, high affinity for the hepatic asialoglycoprotein receptor, and a well defined… (More)
