Cationic immunoliposomes were prepared by conjugation of Fab' fragments of the recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody (HuCC49) against tumor-associated glycoprotein (TAG)-72 to sterically unilamella liposomes. The cationic immunoliposomes are composed of cationic lipid (O,O'-dimyristyl-N-lysyl aspartate, DMKD), cholesterol, and 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine-N-[maleimide(polyethyleneglycol) 2000] (DPPE-PEG-maleimide) with a molar ratio of 0.5:0.47:0.03. Plasmid DNA was effectively condensed by addition of transferrin (Tf) during the formation of anti-TAG-72 PEG-immunolipoplexes (PILPs). These anti-TAG-72 PILPs were able to adhere to the surface of TAG-72-overexepressing LS174T human colon cancer cells more effectively than conventional liposomes, thereby facilitating gene delivery in vitro. Furthermore, intravenous administration of the anti-TAG-72 PILPs into the tumor-carrying mice exhibited efficient localization of the reporter gene in the tumor tissues.
