PURPOSE Lintuzumab (HuM195), a humanized anti-CD33 antibody, targets myeloid leukemia cells and has modest single-agent activity against acute myeloid leukemia (AML). To increase the potency of the antibody without the nonspecific cytotoxicity associated with β-emitters, the α-particle-emitting radionuclide bismuth-213 ((213)Bi) was conjugated to(More)
BACKGROUND Preoperative identification of tumour type could have important implications for the choice of treatment for renal cancers. Antibody cG250 reacts against carbonic anhydrase-IX, which is over-expressed in clear-cell renal carcinomas. We aimed to assess whether iodine-124-labelled antibody chimeric G250 ((124)I-cG250) PET predicts clear-cell renal(More)
Previous studies have suggested that whole body positron-emission tomography (PET) can distinguish between benign and malignant cysts of the pancreas. Patients were identified (n=68) who had undergone whole body PET imaging for a cystic lesion of the pancreas between Jan. 1997 and May 2005. Cross-sectional imaging studies were reviewed by a single blinded(More)
The majority of patients with late stage castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) develop bone metastases that often result in significant bone pain. Therapeutic palliation strategies can delay or prevent skeletal complications and may prolong survival. An alpha-particle based therapy, radium-223 dichloride (²²³RaCl₂), has been developed that delivers(More)
There are presently no accurate methods of imaging prostate cancer metastases to bone. An unprecedented number of novel imaging agents, based on the biology of the disease, are now available for testing. We reviewed contemporary molecular imaging modalities that have been tested in humans with metastatic prostate cancer, with consideration of the studies'(More)
PURPOSE The antibody J591 targets the external domain of prostate-specific membrane antigen, which is expressed in the neovasculature of nonprostate solid tumors. This phase I trial tested the hypothesis that J591 could be used as a vascular targeting platform for patients with nonprostate solid tumors. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients with progressive solid(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine whether lymphoscintigraphy (LSG) for sentinel lymph node (SNL) mapping in a woman with a breast mass presents an unacceptable risk to her fetus. We assessed radiation-absorbed dose to various organs from 99mTc-sulfur colloid (TSC) LSG using standard internal absorbed dose assessment(More)
PURPOSE To compare accuracy and interobserver variability in the detection and localization of recurrent ovarian cancer with contrast material-enhanced (CE) computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET)/CT and determine whether imaging findings can be used to predict survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS Waiving informed consent, the(More)
223Ra-Dichloride (223Ra) is a novel bone-seeking alpha-emitter that prolongs survival in patients with castration-resistant metastatic prostate cancer. We conducted a study to better profile the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and biodistribution of this agent. Ten patients received either 50, 100, or 200 kBq of 223Ra per kilogram of body weight.(More)
BACKGROUND Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a transmembrane glycoprotein primarily expressed on benign and malignant prostatic epithelial cells. J591 is an IgG1 monoclonal antibody that targets the external domain of the PSMA. The relationship among dose, safety, pharmacokinetics, and antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) activation(More)
