Detection of fluorine labeled herceptin using cellular (19)F MRI ex vivo.


PMID 19896315

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the herceptin efficacy in ex vivo cultures of MCF-7 breast carcinoma cells. Herceptin was used with perfluorooctyl bromide (PFOB) and conjugated with lipoplex, containing plasmid DNA and lipofectamine (LipA), to allow fluorine-19 magnetic resonance imaging ((19)F MRI) study. Treatments such as herceptin, herceptin/PFOB and herceptin/PFOB/lipoplex were used for ex vivo targeting of MCF-7 cells cultured in three-dimensional (3D) geometry using hollow fiber bioreactor (HFB) device. The viability of MCF-7 cells after 72h treatments decreased to 54+/-2%, 50+/-3% and 45+/-1% for herceptin, herceptin/PFOB and herceptin/PFOB/Lipoplex, respectively. The EC(50) values were 1000microg/ml, 930microg/ml and 730microg/ml, respectively. The significant correlation between the treatment concentration and efficacy was observed in MCF-7 cell cultures.
