Amplified delivery of indium-111 to EGFR-positive human breast cancer cells.
A method is described to amplify the delivery of 111In to human breast cancer cells utilizing a novel human serum albumin-human EGF (HSA-hEGF) bioconjugate substituted preferentially in the HSA domain with multiple DTPA metal chelators for 111In. 111In-DTPA-HSA-hEGF exhibited a lower receptor-binding affinity than 111In-DTPA-hEGF but was rapidly and specifically bound, internalized and translocated to the nucleus in EGFR-positive MDA-MB-468 breast cancer cells. 111In-DTPA-HSA-hEGF was cytotox...Expand abstract
