In an orthotopic brain tumor mouse model, it was shown that convection-enhanced intratumoral delivery of a theranostic metallofullerene (f-Gd₃N@C₈₀) labeled with lutetium 177 (¹⁷⁷Lu) and tetraazacyclododecane tetraacetic acid (DOTA) (¹⁷⁷Lu-DOTA-f-Gd₃N@C₈₀) increases median survival from 21 to 52 days, with a prolonged metallofullerene tumor retention that can be visualized with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.
