Radioimmunoscintigraphy of ocular melanoma with 99mTc labelled cutaneous melanoma antibody fragments.

The possibility of using radiolabelled monoclonal antibody fragments to image uveal melanomas has been assessed in a pilot study. 99mTc labelled F(ab')2 fragments of MoAb 225.28S raised against cutaneous melanomas were used. Initially 10 patients were imaged. In five patients the clinical findings were typical of uveal melanoma. Immunoscintigraphy was… CONTINUE READING
