Default Pathways of Infusate Loss during Convection-Enhanced Delivery into the Putamen Nucleus.

Abstract
Background: New strategies aiming to treat Parkinson's disease, such as delivery of trophic factors via protein infusion or gene transfer, depend upon localized intracerebral infusion, mainly into the putamen nucleus. Convection-enhanced delivery (CED) has been proposed as a method to improve intracerebral distribution of therapies. Yet analysis of controversial results during the clinical translation of these strategies suggests that intracerebral misdistribution of infusate may have affected the outcomes by limiting the amount of treatment into the target region. Objectives: This study aimed to identify possible pathways of infusate loss and their relative impact in the success of targeted CED into the postcommissural ventral putamen nucleus. Methods: Thirteen adult macaque monkeys received intraputaminal CED infusions of 100 µl of 2.0 mM gadoteridol and bromophenol blue (0.16 mg/ml) solution at a rate of 1.0 µl/min under intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance. Quantitative maps of infusate concentration were computed at 10-min intervals throughout the procedure in a 3-Tesla MRI scanner. The fraction of tracer lost from the putamen as well as the path of loss were evaluated and quantified for each infusion. Results: All injections (total 22) were successfully placed in the ventral postcommissural putamen nucleus. Four major paths of infusate loss from the putamen were observed: overflow across putamen boundaries, perivascular flow along large blood vessels, backflow along the inserted catheter and catheter tract leakage into the vacated catheter tract upon catheter removal. Overflow loss was observed within the first 30 µl of infusion in all cases. Measurable tracer loss following the path of an artery out of the putamen was observed in 15 cases, and in 8 of these cases, the loss was greater than 10% of infusate. Backflow that exited the putamen was observed in 4 cases and led to large loss of infusate (80% in 1 case) into the corona radiata. Loss into the vacated catheter tract amounted only to a few microliters. Conclusions: Our analysis demonstrates that after controlling for targeting, catheter type, infusion rate and infusate, the main issues during surgical planning are the identification of appropriate infusate volume that matches the target area, as well as mapping the regional vasculature as it may become a pathway for infusate loss. Most importantly, these results underscore the significance of presurgical planning for catheter placement and infusion, and the value of imaging guidance to ensure targeting accuracy.

NMR techniques in drug delivery: Application to zein protein complexes
NMR techniques in drug delivery: Application to zein protein complexes 15 December 2012 Publication year: 2012 Source:International Journal of Pharmaceutics, Volume 439, Issues 1–2</br> </br> Zein is a protein containing a large amount of nonpolar amino acids, which has shown the ability to form aggregates and entrap solutes, such as drugs and amino acids. NMR techniques were used to detect binding interactions and measure affinity between zein and three different drugs: tetracycline, amoxicillin and indomethacin. The release study of zein microparticle formulations...

Simultaneous convection compensation and solvent suppression in biomolecular NMR diffusion experiments
Simultaneous convection compensation and solvent suppression in biomolecular NMR diffusion experiments Abstract Thermal convection and high intensity solvent resonances can significantly hamper diffusion estimates in pulsed gradient spin-echo nuclear magnetic resonance diffusion experiments on biomolecule samples. To overcome these two problems, a new double functional NMR diffusion sequence, double echo PGSTE-WATERGATE, is presented. The new sequence provides excellent convection compensation and solvent suppression (with a suppression factor in excess of at least 105 in a single scan)...

J Magn Reson. 2001 Jun;150(2):126-31 Authors: He Q, Wei Z A novel method of convection compensated ENMR (CC-ENMR) has been developed to detect electrophoretic motion of ionic species in the presence of bulk solution convection. This was accomplished using a gradient moment nulling technique to remove spectral artifacts from heat-induced convection and using the polarity switch of the applied electric field to retain spin phase modulations...
