Paper Abstract

We describe an optical tissue phantom that enables the simulation of drug extravasation from microvessels and validates computational compartmental models of drug delivery. The phantom consists of a microdialysis tubing bundle to simulate the permeable blood vessels, immersed in either an aqueous suspension of titanium dioxide (TiO2) or a TiO2 mixed agarose scattering medium. Drug administration is represented by a dye circulated through this porous microdialysis tubing bundle. Optical pharmacokinetic (OP) methods are used to measure changes in the absorption coefficient of the scattering medium due to the arrival and diffusion of the dye. We have established particle sizedependent concentration profiles over time of phantom drug delivery by intravenous (IV) and intra-arterial (IA) routes. Additionally, pharmacokinetic compartmental models are implemented in computer simulations for the conditions studied within the phantom. The simulated concentration-time profiles agree well with measurements from the phantom. The results are encouraging for future optical pharmacokinetic method development, both physical and computational, to understand drug extravasation under various physiological conditions.
