Bottom Line: All the synthesized materials were characterized by proton nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H NMR).Micelles with PHEA-mPEG-C(16)-ED-DOTA-Gd showed higher relaxivities than the commercially available gadolinium contrast agent.Moreover, the signal intensity of a rabbit liver was effectively increased after intravenous injection of PHEA-mPEG-C(16)-ED-DOTA-Gd.

ABSTRACT
Biocompatible poly-[N-(2-hydroxyethyl)-d,l-aspartamide]-methoxypoly(ethyleneglycol)-hexadecylamine (PHEA-mPEG-C(16)) conjugated with 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecan-1,4,7,10-tetraacetic acid-gadolinium (DOTA-Gd) via ethylenediamine (ED) was synthesized as a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent. Amphiphilic PHEA-mPEG-C(16)-ED-DOTA-Gd forms micelle in aqueous solution. All the synthesized materials were characterized by proton nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H NMR). Micelle size and shape were examined by dynamic light scattering (DLS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). Micelles with PHEA-mPEG-C(16)-ED-DOTA-Gd showed higher relaxivities than the commercially available gadolinium contrast agent. Moreover, the signal intensity of a rabbit liver was effectively increased after intravenous injection of PHEA-mPEG-C(16)-ED-DOTA-Gd.

Mentions: DOTA was conjugated to PHEA-mPEG-C16-ED using EDC/NHS, and then Gd was chelated to PHEA-mPEG-C16-ED-DOTA. Gd in PHEA-mPEG-C16-ED-DOTA-Gd was confirmed by EDS analysis (Fig. 2). Table 2 showed that content of C, H, and N was decreased after incorporation of Gd. The average diameter of prepared micellar PHEA-mPEG-C16-ED-DOTA was 180 nm from the data of ELS and AFM (Fig. 3). That size is suitable for uptake in liver.
