Abstract or Summary
  • A unique tumor targeted method, which may be able to deliver a molecule to the surface of a tumor cell using the pH gradient between hypoxic tumor cells and normal tissue has recently been developed. Since solid tumors have been found to have a lower extra cellular pH compared to normal tissue (6.5 to 6.9 for tumors verses an average 7.4 for normal tissue), the pH gradient is used as a source of power to activate a strategically designed "molecular engine" capable of delivering a diagnostic or therapeutic agent to tumor cells. To test this hypothesis, a 22- sequence amino acid, which reorganizes to alpha helical form at pH 6.9 causing the molecule to become lipophilic and embed into the plasma membrane of nearby cells was synthesized. The molecule was then attached to 99mTc via a MAG-3 chelating molecule. In-vivo nuclear imaging was performed and showed apparent significant uptake in primary tumors as well as lung and liver in Lewis lung cell model C57blk-J6 mice with confirmed primary tumors at the base of the tail or lungs. This study shows significant promise for early diagnosis and treatment of cancer on a molecular level.
