    This paper describes the synthesis and biological evaluation of a conjugate of the highly cytotoxic drug 2-pyrrolinodoxorubicin (p-DOX) with an N-(2-hydroxypropyl)methacrylamide copolymer (PHPMA), utilizing the advantageous concept of polymer–drug conjugates. The hydrazone bond between the polymer and drug is susceptible to pH-controlled hydrolysis, enabling prolonged stability in circulation and fast p-DOX release under conditions mimicking the intracellular environment. The in vitro cytostatic activity of free p-DOX was in accordance with literature, whereas its PHPMA conjugate exhibited a 1.3- to 5-fold lower cytotoxicity, depending on the cancer cell line, when compared to the free p-DOX. On mice bearing T-cell EL4 lymphoma, no tumor suppression was observed from the free p-DOX at a subtoxic dose of 0.1 mg/kg, whereas the PHPMA/p-DOX conjugate significantly inhibited the initial tumor growth at approximately equitoxic doses of 0.4 and 0.8 mg p-DOX eq/kg.
