Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) To improve the poor properties of currently clinically used MRI contrast agent of Gd-DTPA (Gadolinium-Diethylenetriamine-N,N,N',N",N"-pentaacetic acid) complex, sugar dendritic derivatives which contains Gd-DTPA as the core part and four or twelve sugars as the terminal part, dendrimer 8(Gd-DTPA-D1Glc(OAc)) or dendrimer 10(Gd-DTPA-D2Glc(OAc)), respectively, were prepared. From the result of relaxivity profile of these Gd complexes depending on temperature and magnitude of magnetic field, the smaller size MRI contrast agent of Gd-DTPA, 8(Gd-DTPA-D1Glc(OAc)), showed similar behavior to that of Gd-DTPA and the dendrimer constructs DDS of Gd-DTPA and was proven to have the improved properties for MR imaging of blood vessel (MRA) as well as for targeting specific organs.
