Background: Our aims were to prepare microspheres labelled with radioactive astatine as brachytherapy seeds and to confirm the antitumor ability of these microspheres. Materials and Methods: Chitosan-collagen composite microspheres (CCMs) were synthesized through an emulsification crosslink reaction and radiolabelled with 211At using the chloramine-T method. Radiation stability was assessed in both phosphate-buffered saline and blood serum. The in vivo distribution and therapeutic effects were evaluated in BALB/c nude mice with implanted tumours. Results: CCMs showed ideal morphological characteristics (diameter of 7.5-15 μm) and acceptable radiation stability (73.99% in PBS and 72.56% in serum after 16 hours). The in vivo biodistribution analysis demonstrated that 211At-CCMs were highly localized in tumour tissue. The therapeutic efficacy of 211At-CCMs when intratumorally injected into a cervical tumour model was assessed. Fourteen days after a single-dose treatment with 211At-CCMs, significantly retarded tumour volume growth was observed. Conclusion: 211At-CCM brachytherapy has the potential to provide an alternative solution for tumour treatment.
Keywords: Brachytherapy, microspheres, radiation oncology, Astatine-211.
