Abstract : This project has as its objective the development of radiotracer imaging technology to follow the in vivo circulation and organ deposition of liposome encapsulated hemoglobin (LEH). LEH will be labeled with technetium-99m or indium-111 and infused into small animals to monitor any in vivo differences between different LEH formulations. These studies will be correlated with any hematological and pathological changes associated with LEH treatment. Development of such non-invasive monitoring techniques may lead to significant cost effective manufacturing and formulation improvements, and ultimately a more efficacious LEH product. The development of this elegant labeling technique should make it possible to study the effect of various LEH modifications on biodistribution non-invasively in primates and humans.
