Anti-metastatic study of liposome-encapsulated all trans retinoic acid (ATRA) in B16F10 melanoma cells-implanted C57BL/6 mice

Published on Wednesday, 07 June 2017


B16F10 cells-induced C57BL/6 mice were divided into several groups and the free all trans retinoic acid (ATRA) and liposome-encapsulated ATRA were given for 21 days.

The encapsulated ATRA treatment lowered the oxidative stress and lipid profile near to the normal level in the drug-treated mice.

Encapsulated ATRA treatment showed substantial decrease in serum cytokines and increase in lifespan when compared with free ATRA treatment.

These results imply that the liposome-encapsulated ATRA may help to achieve a higher level of ATRA in comparison with free ATRA treatment and helps to enhance anticancer drug delivery in liposome-encapsulated ATRA treatment.
