Twenty six patients with primary liver cancer (PLC) were injected with 131I-labeled antibodies to alphafetoprotein (AFP). Each patient was tested by external photoscanning, 24 and 48 hours after injection. Positive imaging in the tumors was obtained in only 50 percent of patients. Serum AFP levels did not correlate with the radioimmunolocalization results. In 15 patients with PLC, concentrations of AFP in the tumors and sera were determined simultaneously. Although tumor AFP concentrations… CONTINUE READING
