Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is highly expressed by both normal and malignant prostate epithelial cells and by the neovasculature of many tumor types; however, it is not expressed by normal endothelial cells or other normal tissues. PSMA, therefore, represents an attractive candidate for selectively targeted therapies for prostate and/or other solid tumors. As an alternative approach to antibody-based anti-PSMA therapies, small peptides that bind selectively to PSMA-producing cells… CONTINUE READING
