Radioimmunotherapy

Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) uses an antibody labeled with a radionuclide to deliver cytotoxic radiation to a target cell. In cancer therapy, an antibody with specificity for a tumor-associated antigen is used to deliver a lethal dose of radiation to the tumor cells. The ability for the antibody to specifically bind to a tumor-associated antigen incre...

radioimmunotherapy

Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumour targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (immunotoxins) has the advantage that adjacent tumour cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radi...

Radioimmunotherapy

This type of radiotherapy is the application of monoclonal antibodies that have been tagged with high activities of suitable radionuclides These tumor-specific antibodies are derived from the patient's own cancer and, hence, they selectively target this tumor when injected into the patient. Also known as monoclonoal antibody therapy.
