Labeling of monoclonal antibodies with Sm-153 for potential use in radioimmunotherapy
MetadataShow full item record
The labeling of a monoclonal (anti-CEA) and a polyclonal (IgG) antibody with Sm-153 has been investigated, using the bicyclic anhydride of DTPA (cDTPAa) as the chelating agent. The radiochemical study was performed using a combination of radioanalytical techniques (gel filtration, HPLC, ITLC-SG and SDS-PAGE). Optimization of factors affecting labeling (pH, Ab, Ab-DTPA concentration, etc.) leads to a labeling yield higher than 90%. Biodistribution studies in normal mice showed slow blood clearance and high uptake into the liver, kidney and lungs. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
