Abstract
The objective of this proposal is to develop nanoparticulate therapeutic products from the readily injectable Gold-198 (Au-198) nanoconstructs invented at the University of Missouri and licensed to Nanoparticle Biochem, Inc. The Phase I effort embodies three aims: (1) Optimization of synthetic protocols, large scale production, and quality control capabilities of Au-198 nanoparticles (NP) and their utility toward conjugations with Gum Arabic (GA) to produce 198-AuNP-GA for use as an injectable brachy agent in prostate tumor (and various other human cancers) therapy
