A comparison of Tc-99m-labeled human serum albumin (HSA) and in vitro labeled red blood cells (RBC) was carried out in five subjects. The disappearance of radioactivity from the blood was more rapid for HSA (T 1/2, 281.6 minutes, range 202.1--318.3) than for RBC (T 1/2, 1719.8 minutes, range 767.6--5059.5). Urinary excretion was twice as great for HSA.(More)
UNLABELLED Several bone-seeking radionuclides (32P, 89Sr, 186Re, and 153Sm) have been used to treat bone pain. The limiting factor in this modality is marrow toxicity. Our hypothesis is that marrow toxicity can be reduced while maintaining therapeutic efficacy using radionuclides that emit short-range beta particles or conversion electrons (CEs). A recent(More)
Radiolabeling of red cells and their clinical and research application in nuclear medicine constitute an area of continued interest and steady growth during the past two decades. Significant advances have been made so that at the present time, radiolabels with sufficient in vitro and in vivo stability are available for diverse applications.(More)
Radionuclides with medium energy beta emission and a several day half-life have often been viewed as attractive candidates for radioimmunotherapy. Among the most promising in this category are 47Sc, 67Cu, 153Sm, 188Re, and 199Au. The production of 67Cu, 153Sm, 199Au at BNL is summarized and the development of the latest candidate for this application, 47Sc,(More)
Radioimmunotherapy has shown promising results for treatment of radiosensitive malignancies such as lymphoma. Positive responses have been reported in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma treated with 131I-radiolabeled Lym-1, a mouse anti-lymphoma monoclonal antibody. In this study, the efficacy of 67Cu-radiolabeled Lym-1 was examined. Nude mice bearing(More)
PURPOSE Lym-1, a monoclonal antibody (MoAb) that preferentially targets malignant lymphocytes, has induced therapeutic responses in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) when labeled with iodine-131 (131I). Radiometal labeled antibodies provide a higher tumor radiation dose than the corresponding 131I labeled antibodies. Based on the strategy of(More)
A procedure, adaptable to large-scale remote operation, was developed to purify no-carrier-added (NCA) 47Sc from irradiated Ti targets. Methods based on extraction chromatography and cation-exchange chromatography were compared. Results of this comparison led to the development of an optimized procedure based on cation-exchange with Dowex AG 50W-X4 and 47Sc(More)
On an organized farm in India, 70 out of 79 cows expected to calve within 30 days revealed the presence of Theileria annulata schizonts and/or piroplasms in their peripheral blood. Similarly, 33 out of 59 calves borne to the above cows also exhibited T. annulata schizonts on day less than 1 to day 19 post partum. The cows and calves were free from Hyalomma(More)
The operation of Flexible AC Transmission System Controllers (FACTS) in the power transmission system pose a challenge to the distance relaying scheme. This paper suggests an adaptive scheme for estimating the trip boundaries of a distance relay in presence of a Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC), utilizing a Generalized Regression Neural Network (GRNN).(More)
