Immunolymphscintigraphy of axillary lymph node metastases in breast cancer patients using monoclonal antibodies: first clinical findings.

The results of preliminary investigations into the immunolymphscintigraphic (ILS) detection of axillary lymph node metastases in nine breast cancer patients by means of the 3C6F9 monoclonal antibody (MAs) are presented. The IgG2a monoclonal antibody detects a 37 KD antigen, consistently found on the surface of primary and metastatic breast tumors. Each… CONTINUE READING
