Radioisotopes of Pb(II) have been of some interest in radioimmunotherapy and radioimmunoimaging (RII). However, the absence of a kinetically stable bifunctional chelating agent for Pb(II) has hampered its use for these applications. 203Pb (T(1/2) = 52.02 h) has application potential in RII, with a gamma-emission that is ideal for single photon emission(More)
BACKGROUND HER2 is a membrane receptor whose overexpression is strongly associated with poor prognosis in breast carcinomas. Inhibition of HER2 activity can reduce tumor growth, which led to the development of Herceptin, an anti-HER2 monoclonal antibody (MAb) that is already in clinical use. However, the objective response rate to Herceptin monotherapy is(More)
UNLABELLED Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) labeled with alpha-emitting radionuclides such as (211)At, (212)Bi, (213)Bi, and (212)Pb (which decays by beta-emission to its alpha-emitting daughter, (212)Bi) are being evaluated for their potential applications for cancer therapy. The fate of these radionuclides after cells are targeted with mAbs is important in(More)
A simple spectrophotometric assay for determination of bifunctional polyazacarboxylate-macrocyclic ligands of different sizes that are conjugated to proteins has been developed for: 12-membered macrocycle DOTA (2-[4-nitrobenzyl]-1, 4, 7, 10-tetraazacyclododecane-N,N',N'',N'''-tetraacetic acid) and analogs, the 15-membered PEPA macrocycle(More)
225Ac (t(1/2) = 10 days) is an alternative alpha-emitter that has been proposed for radioimmunotherapy (RIT) due to its many favorable properties, such as half-life and mode of decay. The factor limiting use of (225)Ac in RIT is the lack of an acceptably stable chelate for in vivo applications. Herein is described the first reported bifunctional chelate for(More)
Geldanamycin was modified with 1,4-diaminobutane to introduce a primary amine that was subsequently employed to provide a maleimide for protein linkage. Monoclonal antibody Herceptin was then derivatized to generate thiol groups that reacted with the maleimide derivative to produce the immunoconjugate. The product showed antiproliferative activity greater(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the in vitro and in vivo performance of a 67Ga complex with cis,cis-1,3,5-triaminocyclohexane-N,N',N"-triacetic acid (tachta) as a potential ligand for use as a Ga(III) radiopharmaceutical for PET imaging. The radiolabeling procedure, electrophoretic properties, lipophilicity, acid stability, human serum stability(More)
