UNLABELLED Pretargeted radioimmunotherapy (PRIT) with bispecific antibodies in combination with a radiolabeled peptide reduces the radiation dose to normal tissues, especially the bone marrow. In this study, the optimization, therapeutic efficacy, and toxicity of PRIT of colon cancer with a (177)Lu-labeled peptide was determined in mice with(More)
The Dock-and-Lock (DNL) method, which makes bioactive molecules with multivalency and multifunctionality, is a new approach to develop targeting molecules for improved cancer imaging and therapy. It involves the use of a pair of distinct protein domains involved in the natural association between cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP)-dependent protein(More)
Here we describe molecular imaging of cancer using signal amplification of a radiotracer in situ by pretargeting a multivalent, bispecific antibody to carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), which subsequently also captures a radioactive hapten-peptide. Human colon cancer xenografts as small as approximately 0.15 g were disclosed in nude mice within 1 h of giving(More)
Multivalent antibodies, either monospecific or bispecific, may improve the efficacy of current therapeutic interventions involving a single monoclonal antibody (mAb). We have applied the Dock-and-Lock (DNL) method, a new platform technology for the site-specific and covalent assembly of modular components into stably tethered complexes of defined(More)
We examined whether a pretargeting method using a new recombinant anti-CD20 bispecific antibody (bsMAb) followed by (90)Y-1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-N,N',N'',N'''-tetraacetic acid ((90)Y-DOTA)-peptide could reduce hematologic toxicity yet improve therapeutic responses compared with conventional (90)Y-anti-CD20 IgG and a chemically conjugated bsMAb. TF4,(More)
Trop-2 is a novel target for ADC therapy because of its high expression by many solid cancers. The rational development of IMMU-132 represents a paradigm shift as an ADC that binds a well-known moderately-cytotoxic drug, SN-38, to the anti-Trop-2 antibody. In vitro and in vivo studies show enhanced efficacy, while there is a gradual release of SN-38 that(More)
PURPOSE With increasing interest in pretargeting procedures for improving the delivery of radionuclides for cancer imaging and therapy, this investigation was undertaken to examine how to optimize a bispecific monoclonal antibody (bsMAb) pretargeting procedure for therapeutic applications. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The model system examined was a bsMAb composed(More)
Epratuzumab, a humanized anti-CD22 antibody, is currently in clinical trials of B-cell lymphomas and autoimmune diseases, demonstrating therapeutic activity in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Thus, epratuzumab offers a promising option for CD22-targeted immunotherapy, yet its mechanism of action remains poorly understood.(More)
(18)F-Fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) is the most common molecular imaging agent in oncology, with a high sensitivity and specificity for detecting several cancers. Antibodies could enhance specificity; therefore, procedures were developed for radiolabeling a small ( approximately 1451 Da) hapten peptide with (68)Ga or (18)F to compare their specificity with(More)
The selective delivery of therapeutic radionuclides is a promising approach for treating cancer. Antibody-targeted radionuclides are of particular interest, with 2 products approved for the treatment of certain forms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. However, for many other cancers, radioimmunotherapy has been ineffective, being limited by prolonged exposure to the(More)
