To investigate kinetics of free $^{177}Lu$ and $^{177}Lu$-labeled thermally cross-linked superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (TCL-SPION), suspensions were intravenously injected into the tail vein of mice at a dose of $5{mu}Ci$/mouse or 15 mg/kg body weight, respectively. Free $^{177}Lu$ radioactivity levels were highest in kidney followed by liver and lung 1 day post-injection. $^{177}Lu$-labeled TCL-SPION radioactivity in liver and spleen was significantly higher compared to that of other organs throughout the experimental period (p < 0.05). Radioactivity in blood, brain, and epididymis rapidly declined until 28 days. Based on these results, TCL-SPION could be a safe carrier of therapeutics.
Key Words: accumulation, biodistribution, $^{177}Lu$, nanotoxicity, TCL-SPION
