UNLABELLED Monoclonal antibody (moAb) ior egf/r3 is an IgG2a that recognizes the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R). The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of the 99mTc-labeled moAb ior egf/r3 for the detection of epithelial-derived tumors, their metastases and recurrences. METHODS One hundred forty-eight adult patients (51(More)
From genetic material of hybridoma cells, we have generated a recombinant single-chain antibody fragment (scFv antibody) specific to carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), which can substitute an intact murine monoclonal immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) antibody, also developed by our group, and used in clinical practice for many years. In this paper, we examine a novel(More)
OBJECTIVE To show the results of Radioimmunodetection (RID) using Cuban monoclonal antibody (MoA) anti-egf-ior-egf-r3 labeled with 99mTc for the detection of primary tumors and/or metastases of head and neck epithelial malignant tumors. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirteen patients aged from 16-62 years (mean: 54.8 years) with primary tumors and metastases in(More)
UNLABELLED IOR C-5 is a G1 immunoglobulin type intact murine monoclonal antibody (MAb) that was developed in the Center of Molecular Immunology in Havana City, Cuba. In immunohistochemical studies, this demonstrated a significant affinity for the epithelial tissues so that it was used in a pilot clinical study to perform a radioimmunoscintigraphy of the(More)
The anti-carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) antibody, BW 431/26 (Scintimun CEA, Behringwerke, Marburg, Germany ) labeled with technetium pertechnectate (99mTc), is an intact immunoglobulin G1, monoclonal antibody that has been used to image colorectal cancer. Planar and SPECT images of chest, abdomen and pelvis were performed at 10 minutes, 4-6 and 18-24 hours(More)
