Abstract [en]

INTRODUCTION: The humanized monoclonal antibody A33 (huA33) is a potential targeting agent against colorectal carcinoma since the A33 antigen is highly and homogenously expressed in >95% of all colorectal cancers, both primary tumors and metastases. The aim of this study was to determine the biodistribution and tumor-targeting ability of (177)Lu-labeled huA33. METHODS: huA33 was labeled with the beta-emitting therapeutic nuclide (177)Lu using the chelator CHX-A"-DTPA, and the properties of the (177)Lu-CHX-A"-huA33 ((177)Lu-huA33) conjugate was determined both in vitro and in vivo in a biodistribution study in nude mice xenografted with colorectal SW1222 tumor cells. RESULTS: The (177)Lu-huA33 conjugate bound specifically to colorectal cancer cells in vitro (with a K(D) value of 2.3+/-0.3 nM, determined by a saturation assay) and in vivo. The tumor uptake of (177)Lu-huA33 was very high, peaking at 134+/-21%ID/g 72 h postinjection (pi). Normal tissue uptake was low; radioactivity concentration in blood (which had the second highest radioactivity concentration) was lower than in tumor at all time points studied (8 h to 10 days). The tumor-to-blood ratio increased with time, reaching 70+/-30, 10 days pi. Throughout the study, the uptake of (177)Lu in bone (known to accumulate free (177)Lu) was low, and the fraction of protein-bound (177)Lu in plasma samples was high (95% to 99%). This indicates high stability of the (177)Lu-huA33 conjugate in vivo. CONCLUSION: The (177)Lu-huA33 conjugate shows a very favorable biodistribution, with an impressively high tumor uptake and high tumor-to-organ ratios, indicating that the conjugate may be suitable for radioimmunotherapy of colorectal cancer.

Abstract [en]

Targeted radiotherapy (TRT) of cancer is a promising approach that enables selective treatment of tumour cells, while sparing normal tissue. The humanized monoclonal antibody A33 (huA33) is a potential targeting agent for TRT of colorectal cancer, since its antigen is expressed in more than 95 % of all colorectal carcinomas. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate the therapeutic potential of the two huA33-based TRT-conjugates, 177Lu-huA33, and 211At-huA33.

The conjugates 177Lu-huA33, and 211At-huA33, bound specifically to colorectal cancer cells, both in vitro and in vivo. A dose dependent cytotoxic effect of 211At-huA33 was also demonstrated in vitro. From a therapeutic perspective, both conjugates had a favourable biodistribution in tumour-bearing nude mice, with high tumour uptake and a low uptake in normal organs (with the exception of an expected thyroid uptake of 211At). After injection of 211At-huA33, the blood absorbed a slightly higher dose than the tumour, but for 177Lu-huA33, the tumour received a 12 times higher dose than blood. Two days after intravenous injection of 177Lu-huA33 in tumour-bearing mice, the tumours could be clearly visualised by gamma camera imaging, with very low interference from normal tissue radioactivity. In an experimental therapy study, also performed in tumour-bearing mice, there was an excellent therapeutic effect of 177Lu-huA33. About 50 % of the treated animals were tumour free 140 days after injection of 177Lu-huA33, while none of the non-radioactive controls survived beyond 20 days after injection of treatment substances.

In conclusion, this thesis demonstrates that the therapeutic conjugates 177Lu-huA33, and 211At-huA33, are promising targeting agents that might help improve therapy of colorectal cancer.
