Abstract
We are investigating the ability of targeted rare earth (RE) doped nanocomposites to detect and track micrometastatic breast cancer lesions to distant sites in pre-clinical in vivo models. Functionalizing RE nanocomposites with AMD3100 promotes targeting to CXCR4, a recognized marker for highly metastatic disease. Mice were inoculated with SCP-28 (CXCR4 positive) and 4175 (CXCR4 negative) cell lines. Whole animal in vivo SWIR fluorescence imaging was performed after bioluminescence imaging confirmed tumor burden in the lungs. Line-scanning confocal fluorescence microscopy provided high-resolution imaging of RE nanocomposite uptake and native tissue autofluorescence in ex vivo lung specimens. Co-registered optical coherence tomography imaging allowed assessment of tissue microarchitecture. In conclusion, multiscale optical molecular imaging can be performed in pre-clinical models of metastatic breast cancer, using targeted RE-doped nanocomposites.
