An engineered anti-carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) diabody (scFv dimer, 55 kDa) was previously constructed from the murine anti-CEA T84.66 antibody. Tumor targeting, imaging and biodistribution studies in nude mice bearing LS174T xenografts with radiolabeled anti-CEA diabody demonstrated rapid tumor uptake and fast blood clearance, which are favorable(More)
BACKGROUND Recombinant monoclonal antibodies have emerged as important tools for cancer therapy. Despite the promise shown by antibody-based therapies, the large molecular size of antibodies limits their ability to efficiently penetrate solid tumors and precludes efficient crossing of the blood-brain-barrier into the central nervous system (CNS).(More)
An engineered antibody fragment (minibody; scFv-C(H)3gamma(1) dimer, M(r) 80 000) specific for carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) has previously demonstrated excellent tumor targeting coupled with rapid clearance in vivo. In this study, variable (V) genes from the anti- p185(HER-2) 10H8 antibody were similarly assembled and expressed. Four constructs were made:(More)
Albumin fusion proteins have demonstrated the ability to prolong the in vivo half-life of small therapeutic proteins/peptides in the circulation and thereby potentially increase their therapeutic efficacy. To evaluate if this format can be employed for antibody-based imaging, an anticarcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) single-chain antibody(scFv)-albumin fusion(More)
A series of anti-tumor/anti-chelate bispecific antibody formats were developed for pre-targeted radioimmunotherapy. Based on the anti-carcinoembryonic antigen humanized hT84.66-M5A monoclonal antibody and the anti-DOTA C8.2.5 scFv antibody fragment, this cognate series of bispecific antibodies were radioiodinated to determine their tumor targeting,(More)
This case study describes early phase purification process development for a recombinant anticancer minibody produced in mammalian cell culture. The minibody did not bind to protein A. Cation-exchange, anion-exchange, hydrophobic-interaction, and hydroxyapatite (eluted by phosphate gradient) chromatographic methods were scouted, but the minibody coeluted(More)
This study introduces the application of calcium-derivatized hydroxyapatite for purification of Fab. Fab binds to native hydroxyapatite but fails to bind to the calcium derivatized form. IgG, Fc, and most other protein contaminants bind to the calcium form. This supports Fab purification by a simple flow-through method that achieves greater than 95% purity(More)
Retention mapping of chimeric monoclonal IgG(1), Fc, Fab, F(ab')(2), and aggregated antibody was conducted on hydroxyapatite (HA) by systematically varying phosphate and chloride concentrations during gradient elution in order to characterize the interactions of each solute with calcium and phosphate residues on the solid phase. Lysozyme was used as a(More)
