BACKGROUND Radiotherapy of solid tumors is preferably performed in fractionated doses. Conversely, radioimmunotherapy with nuclide-carrying antibodies delivers a continuously decreasing low dose rate during a longer time period after a single injection. In the current study, the same total amount of 125I-labeled anticytokeratin monoclonal antibody (MoAb)(More)
BACKGROUND Repeated injections of iodine-125 (125I)-labeled tumor targeting anticytokeratin monoclonal antibody (TS1) and a nonlabeled antiidiotypic monoclonal antibody against TS1 (alphaTS1) were compared with a single injection of the radiolabeled TS1 in experimental radioimmunotargeting. Anti-TS1 was used to remove nontargeting TS1. METHODS Nude mice(More)
PURPOSE Placental alkaline phosphatase (PLAP) is a membrane-bound oncofetal antigen that can be used for radioimmunotargeting. Preinjection of nonlabeled monoclonal anti-PLAP antibody (H7) and postinjection of monoclonal anti-idiotypic anti-PLAP antibody (alpha H7) were used in order to improve the localization efficacy of 125I-labeled H7.

PURPOSE To investigate the potential benefit of increasing the dose per projection image in chest tomosynthesis, performed at the current standard dose level, by reducing the angular range covered or the projection image density and to evaluate the influence of the tube voltage on the image quality. METHODS An anthropomorphic chest phantom was imaged(More)
BACKGROUND Preinjection of a nonlabeled tumor targeting anticytokeratin monoclonal antibody (TS1) and postinjection of an anti-idiotypic anticytokeratin monoclonal antibody (alphaTS1) were evaluated separately and in combination to investigate their effects on the accumulation of iodine-125 (125I)-labeled TS1 in experimental radioimmunotargeting. TS1(More)
Background A method of simulating pulmonary nodules in tomosynthesis images has previously been developed and evaluated. An unknown feature of a rounding function included in the computer code was later found to introduce an artifact, affecting simulated nodules in low-signal regions of the images. The computer code has now been corrected. Purpose To(More)
BACKGROUND Nude mice with xenografted human tumors is the most exploited animal model used to elucidate the efficacy of experimental radioimmunolocalization and radioimmunotherapy. These animals accept transplants and are generally considered immunologically inert with regard to cell-mediated and humoral immune responses against the tumors. METHODS Nude(More)
