AIM AND BACKGROUND: Radioimmunoguided surgery using radiolabeled NR-LU-10 Fab was evaluated as a method of intraoperative breast cancer detection. METHODS: Breast cancer patients were injected intravenously with 125I (74 MBq) labeled NR-LU-10 Fab (5 mg) and then underwent tumor excision 2, 4 or 7 days later, during which time the gamma detector probe was used to evaluate the primary tumor for evidence of radioactive uptake. RESULTS: Intraoperative probing revealed tumor localization in 7 of 10 patients (70%). Gamma probe counts of the excised tumor were elevated in all patients, although high counts in surrounding non-malignant tissue obscured the ability to detect the tumor in vivo in 3 patients. One patient with bilateral breast cancer was found to have a separate focus of occult tumor in each breast using the gamma detector probe. CONCLUSIONS: Radiolabeled NR-LU-10 Fab possesses favorable pharmokinetics and tumor-binding ability as a targeting agent. However, binding to non-malignant tissue limits its role in the intraoperative evaluation of tumor margins in breast cancer patients. Its role in other malignancies should be explored.
