Abstract: Paramagnetic pH-responsive liposomes have recently been suggested as a promising approach for monitoring by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) pH changes in tumours. In the present study, the effects of variations in bilayer composition on the relaxometric properties of diacylphosphatidylethanolamine (PE)/dipalmitoylglycerosuccinate (DPSG) liposomal GdDTPA-BMA were investigated both in buffer and blood. A factorial experimental design was used with the variables PE chain length and mol% DPSG. All the relaxometri…
