PURPOSE We examined the tumor-targeting and therapeutic effects of (67)Cu-labeled single amino acid mutant forms of anti-L1 monoclonal antibody chCE7 in nude mice with orthotopically implanted SKOV3ip human ovarian carcinoma cells. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN For radioimmunotherapy, chCE7 antibodies with a mutation of histidine 310 to alanine (chCE7H310A) and a(More)
The L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1CAM) is considered a valuable target for therapeutic intervention in different types of cancer. Recent studies have shown that anti-L1CAM radioimmunotherapy (RIT) with 67Cu- and 177Lu-labelled internalising monoclonal antibody (mAb) chCE7 was effective in the treatment of human ovarian cancer xenografts. In this study, we(More)
BACKGROUND Evaluation of novel cellular therapies in large-animal models and patients is currently hampered by the lack of imaging approaches that allow for long-term monitoring of viable transplanted cells. In this study, sodium iodide symporter (NIS) transgene imaging was evaluated as an approach to follow in vivo survival, engraftment, and distribution(More)
INTRODUCTION The low-energy β(-) emitter (161)Tb is very similar to (177)Lu with respect to half-life, beta energy and chemical properties. However, (161)Tb also emits a significant amount of conversion and Auger electrons. Greater therapeutic effect can therefore be expected in comparison to (177)Lu. It also emits low-energy photons that are useful for(More)
BACKGROUND Today's standard treatment of advanced-stage ovarian cancer, including surgery followed by a paclitaxel-platinum-based chemotherapy, is limited in efficacy. Recently, we could show that radioimmunotherapy (RIT) with (177)Lu-labelled anti-L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1CAM) monoclonal antibody chCE7 is effective in ovarian cancer therapy. We(More)
INTRODUCTION We assessed the suitability of the radiolanthanide (155)Tb (t1/2=5.32 days, Eγ=87 keV (32%), 105keV (25%)) in combination with variable tumor targeted biomolecules using preclinical SPECT imaging. METHODS (155)Tb was produced at ISOLDE (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) by high-energy (~1.4 GeV) proton irradiation of a tantalum target followed by(More)
INTRODUCTION Affibody molecules are small (58 amino acids) high-affinity proteins based on a tri-helix non-immunoglobulin scaffold. A clinical study has demonstrated that PET imaging using Affibody molecules labeled with 68Ga (T½=68min) can visualize metastases of breast cancer expressing human epidermal growth factor receptor type 2 (HER2) and provide(More)
The folate receptor (FR) is expressed in a variety of gynecological cancer types. It has been widely used for tumor targeting with folic acid conjugates of diagnostic and therapeutic probes. The cervical KB tumor cells have evolved as the standard model for preclinical investigations of folate-based (radio) conjugates. In this study, a panel of(More)
Antibodies directed against the L1 cell adhesion protein inhibit growth of SKOV3ip human ovarian cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. Responses of SKOV3ip cells in vitro to anti-L1 mAb chCE7 and Genistein were investigated. Genistein potentiated the anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects of chCE7 in SKOV3ip cells. A combination of mAb chCE7 and(More)
Kinesin spindle protein (KSP), an ATP-dependent motor protein, plays an essential role in bipolar spindle formation during the mitotic phase (M phase) of the normal cell cycle. KSP has emerged as a novel target for antimitotic anticancer drug development. In this work, we synthesized a range of new biphenyl compounds and investigated their properties in(More)
