In vivo localization of human colon adenocarcinoma by monoclonal antibody binding to a highly expressed cell surface antigen.

We have produced a monoclonal antibody (SF-25) against a human hepatoma cell line (FOCUS) that strongly reacts with an antigen shared by all six colon adenocarcinoma cell lines. This cell surface antigen was uniformly expressed in all 17 human adenocarcinomas of the colon obtained at surgery but not on the normal adjacent mucosa counterpart. Other normal… CONTINUE READING
