Abstract [en]

Significant improvements in tumor/nontumor ratio can be achieved by injections of nonlabeled anti-idiotypic monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) during radioimmunolocalization and radioimmunotherapy using MAbs to target experimental tumors. The in vivo effects of an anti-idiotypic MAb (alpha H7) against a radioiodinated, high affinity, low dissociation rate, monoclonal antiplacental alkaline phosphatase antibody (H7) was investigated. Following in vivo injection of the anti-idiotypic MAb, the radioactivity in experimental tumors was found to decrease only 25% while the reduction of corresponding radioactivity in nontumor tissues amounted to 65-85%, compared to the group receiving no anti-idiotypic MAbs. These results indicate that it is possible to partially clear the circulation and nontumor tissues from excess of radiolabeled idiotypic antibody, without significant decrease in specific tumor localization, increasing the tumor/nontumor ratio three- to fourfold. Circulating nontumor targeting radiolabeled antibodies is one of the major limiting factors in radioimmunotherapy today. Injection of anti-idiotypic MAbs could selectively significantly reduce the radiation dose to radio-sensitive tissues, i.e., bone marrow and intestine, thus improving efficiency in radioimmunoscintigraphy and radioimmunotherapy.
