Antitumor effect of boron nitride nanotubes in combination with thermal neutron irradiation on BNCT.

Bioorg Med Chem Lett 2015 Jan 8;25(2):172-4. Epub 2014 Dec 8.

The first BNCT antitumor effects of BNNTs toward B16 melanoma cells were demonstrated. The use of DSPE-PEG2000 was effective for preparation of the BNNT-suspended aqueous solution. BNNT-DSPE-PEG2000 accumulated in B16 melanoma cells approximately three times higher than BSH and the higher BNCT antitumor effect was observed in the cells treated with BNNT-DSPE-PEG2000 compared to those treated with BSH, indicating that BNNT-DSPE-PEG2000 would be a possible candidate as a boron delivery vehicle for BNCT.

Spermidinium closo-dodecaborate-encapsulating liposomes as efficient boron delivery vehicles for neutron capture therapy.

Chem Commun (Camb) 2014 Oct;50(82):12325-8

Chemical Resources Laboratory, Tokyo Institute of Technology, 4259 Nagatsuta-cho, Midori-ku, Yokohama 226-8503, Japan.

closo-Dodecaborate-encapsulating liposomes were developed as boron delivery vehicles for neutron capture therapy. The use of spermidinium as a counter cation of closo-dodecaborates was essential not only for the preparation of high boron content liposome solutions but also for efficient boron delivery to tumors.
