  1. 1. Tumour Targeting using Radiolabelled Affibody Molecules : Influence of Labelling Chemistry

    Author : Mohamed Altai; Vladimir Tolmachev; Jacques Barbet; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : HER2; Affibody molecule; Radionuclide molecular maging; Targeted radionuclide therapy; Labeling chemistry;

    Abstract : Affibody molecules are promising candidates for targeted radionuclide-based imaging and therapy applications. Optimisation of targeting properties would permit the in vivo visualization of cancer-specific surface receptors with high contrast. In therapy, this may increase the ratio of radioactivity uptake between tumour and normal tissues. READ MORE

  2. 2. EGFR- and HER2-Binding Affibody Molecules : Cellular studies of monomeric, dimeric and bispecific ligands

    Author : Lina Ekerljung; Lars Gedda; Johan Lennartsson; Jörgen Carlsson; Birgitta Sundström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : EGFR; HER2; Affibody molecule; cell signaling; receptor dimerization; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Abnormal expression and signaling of the ErbB receptors is associated with the development and progression of several forms of cancer. In this thesis, new ErbB-targeting affibody molecules are evaluated regarding their cellular effects in vitro. READ MORE

  3. 3. Affibody molecules for proteomic and therapeutic applications

    Author : Caroline Grönwall; Stefan Ståhl; Lena Jendeberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Affibody; protein engineering; phage display; amyloid beta peptide; transferrin; CD25; IL-2 receptor; proteomics; Bioengineering; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis describes generation and characterization of Affibody molecules with future applications in proteomics research, protein structure determinations, therapeutic treatment of disease and medical imaging for in vivo diagnostics. Affibody molecules are engineered affinity proteins developed by combinatorial protein engineering from the 58-residue protein A-derived Z domain scaffold. READ MORE

  4. 4. Affibody molecules targeting HER3 for cancer therapy

    Author : Tarek Bass; Stefan Ståhl; Christina Furebring; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Affibody molecule; cancer therapy; epidermal growth factor receptors; ErbB3; HER3; protein engineering;

    Abstract : The development of targeted therapy has contributed tremendously to the treatment of patients with cancer. The use of highly specific affinity proteins to target cancer cells has become a standard in treatment strategies for several different cancers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Radiolabeled HER-2 Binding Affibody Molecules for Tumor Targeting : Preclinical Studies

    Author : Ann-Charlott Steffen; Jörgen Carlsson; Vladimir Tolmachev; Lars Gedda; Ragnar Hultborn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedicine; HER-2; affibody; 211At; tumor targeting; targeted radiotherapy; molecular imaging; Biomedicin; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Conventional cancer treatment based on radiotherapy or chemotherapy affects all dividing cells. By directing the therapy specifically to the tumor cells, normal cells can be spared. Tumor targeting molecules carrying a cytotoxic moiety is then an attractive approach. READ MORE
