Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the kinetics, biodistribution, and tumor-depicting properties of three intact indium-111-labeled murine monoclonal antibodies (MoAb) and to determine if use of In-111-labeled F(ab')2 fragments of one of them had advantages over its intact counterpart for immunoscintigraphy. Ten patients with prostate cancer were studied with an anti-prostatic acid phosphatase MoAb (PAY-276), with a resultant tumor detection rate of 15%. Twenty-eight patients with melanoma were studied with ZME-018, a MoAb that targets the KD-240 melanoma antigen. Forty-three percent of the known lesions were detected. Forty patients with carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)-producing tumors were studied, 24 with intact ZCE-025, and anti-CEA MoAb, and 16 with its F(ab')2 fragment. With use of intact ZCE-025, 34% of known lesions were detected versus 83% with its F(ab')2 fragment. The distribution of each MoAb appears unique unto itself with regard to kinetics, normal tissue distribution, and response to MoAb mass.
