SLT-Particles for Two-Step Targeting in Boron Neutron Capture Therapy
There are investigations proposing that liposomes, both stabilized and unstabilized, gather at sites of pathology, such as tumors, infections, and inflammations.1, 2, 3, 4 The site-specific uptake of liposomal substances ought to increase with a targeting agent on the liposome. One way to conduct the targeting is to use PEG (polyethylene glycol) as a spacer and conjugate the targeting agent to the terminus of the polymer.5 This conjugated liposome can be named a SLT-particle (stabilized liposome with targeting ligand).
