We investigated the antitumor effects and tissue distribution of adriamycin (ADR) incorporated into a hydroxyapatite (HAP) bead in a cancer rat model bearing Swarm rat chondrosarcoma. The Porous HAP bead (8.48 mm in diameter, 531 ±0.7 mg in weight) was used as a model bone graft. One ADR-HAP bead (ADR 0.4 mg-6.0 mg/bead) was implanted s.c. into a Sprague-Dawley rat at 6 days postinoculation of Swarm rat chondrosarcoma. ADR-HAP beads showed strong antitumor activities in a dose dependent manner. The dose of 6.0 mg/bead showed the highest efficacy with no toxic death: It caused a 98% growth inhibition on Day 31 postinoculation and a survival advantage of a 339% increase in life span. After the implantation of the ADR-HAP bead (0.4 mg/bead/body) and the i.v. administration of an equal dose of free adriamycin, we determined the tissue distribution of ADR for up to 90 days. ADR-HAP bead implanted in the tumors released ADR over a 12-week period in the target area. The diffusion of the drug to other organs such as the heart and liver was very low compared with the tumors. The area under the ADR concentration-time curve (AUC) of the tumors was 181.6μg-day/g and 5.22μg*day/g after the implantation of the ADR-HAP bead and the i.v. administration of free ADR, respectively. The targeting index of the tumors, defined as the ratio of the AUC after the implantation of the ADR-HAP bead to that after administration of free ADR, was 34.8. The targeting indices of 0.16 and 0.17 for the heart and liver, respectively, indicate that the implantation of the ADR-HAP bead reduced delivery of ADR to these organs. These results demonstrate that this method of administration may be useful in delivering adjuvant chemotherapy in order to prevent local recurrence in the site of the bony defect after the surgical removal of bone tumors.
