Pretargeting of necrotic tumors with biotinylated hypericin using 123I-labeled avidin: evaluation of a two-step strategy


As an alternative to directly targeting of necrotic tissue using hypericin, we synthesized a conjugate of hypericin to biotin for use in a pretargeting approach. With this conjugate, we explored the possibility of a two-step pretargeting strategy using 123I-labeled avidin as effector molecule directed against necrotic RIF-1 tumors. Hypericin was conjugated… (More)
