Are radiometal-labeled antibodies better than iodine-131-labeled antibodies: comparative pharmacokinetics and dosimetry of copper-67-, iodine-131-, and yttrium-90-labeled Lym-1 antibody in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Radioimmunotherapy using radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies against tumor-associated antigens has been efficacious, particularly in the treatment of radiosensitive malignancies such as lymphoma. Antilymphoma monoclonal antibody Lym-1, labeled with copper-67 ((67)Cu), iodine-131 ((131)I), or yttrium-90 ((90)Y), has been effective salvage therapy for patients… CONTINUE READING
