Radioimmunodetection of Malignant Melanoma with Radiolabelled (131I, 123I, 111In, 99mTc) Monoclonal Antibodies and F(ab′)2 Fragments
Several research projects involving the production, the characterization and the utilization in clinical oncology of monoclonal antibodies (MoAb) to tumor-associated antigens expressed by different tumors, are currently in progress at the Istituto Nazionale Tumori of Milan (Italy). After the significant results obtained with immunoscintigraphy by Goldenberg et al. , Mach et al. , and Larson et al. , our group adopted this new approach to tumor imaging as a priority research field.
