  1. 1. Radioimmunotherapy of Metastatic Disease - Studies of Alpha- and Beta-particle-Emitting Radionuclides in a Preclinical Model

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Sophie Eriksson; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radioimmunotherapy; Antibody therapy; Lutetium-177; Astatine-211; Syngeneic tumor model; Colon carcinoma; Metastases; Autoradiography;

    Abstract : In radioimmunotherapy, monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are used as a targeting agent carrying a toxic payload consisting of radionuclides. This treatment allows the irradiation of small lesions, even on the microscopic level. In the present work, two radionuclides with different properties were used. READ MORE

  2. 2. Radioimmunoimaging and Radioimmunotherapy of Prostate Cancer Preclinical evaluation of kallikrein related peptidase 2 targeting

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Radiation Physics, Clinical Sciences, Lund, Lund University

    Author : Oskar Vilhelmsson Timmermand; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radioimmunoimaging; radioimmunotherapy; antibody; 11B6; indium-111; lutetium-177; kallikrein related peptidase 2; hK2; PSA; prostate cancer; SPECT; KLK2; cherenkov luminescence imaging; CLI;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is one of the major causes of cancer related deaths in men in Europe and the United States. In this doctoral thesis, radioimmunoimaging and -therapy of prostate cancer was investigated pre-clinically by targeting the human kallikrein-related peptidase 2 (hK2) with radiolabelled monoclonal antibodies.

  3. 3. Lutetium-177-octreotate treatment of small intestine neuroendocrine tumors - Radiation biology as basis for optimization

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Radiation Physics, Clinical Sciences, Lund, Lund University

    Author : Johan Spetz; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy; PRRT; somatostatin receptors; SSTR; midgut carcinoid; radiogenomics;

    Abstract : Patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) often have metastatic spread at the time of diagnosis. NETs frequently express somatostatin receptors (SSTR) that can be targeted by radiolabeled somatostatin analogs (e.g. 177Lu-octreotate). READ MORE

  4. 4. Multimodal sentinel lymph node imaging using nanoscale-tailored particles; The importance of particle size

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Radiation Physics, Clinical Sciences, Lund, Lund University

    Author : Pontus Kjellman; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; multimodal contrast agent; USPIO; sentinel lymph node; in vivo; EL-4 tumor;

    Abstract : As a cancer grows it will, at a certain stage of disease progression, start spreading in the body. For several types of cancer this spreading will first occur through the lymphatic system and the first place where metastatic cell will be encountered is the first lymph node that drains the area where the tumor is located.
