Evaluation of [Cu-64]Cu-NOTA-PEG7-H-Tz for Pretargeted Imaging in LS174T Xenografts-Comparison to [111In-111]In-DOTA-PEG11-BisPy-Tz

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Pretargeted nuclear imaging for the diagnosis of various cancers is an emerging and fast developing field. The tetrazine ligation is currently considered the most promising reaction in this respect. Monoclonal antibodies are often the preferred choice as pretargeting vector due to their outstanding targeting properties. In this work, we evaluated the performance of [Cu-64]Cu-NOTA-PEG(7)-H-Tz using a setup we previously used for [In-111]In-DOTA-PEG(11)-BisPy-Tz, thereby allowing for comparison of the performance of these two promising pretargeting imaging agents. The evaluation included a comparison of the physicochemical properties of the compounds and their performance in an ex vivo blocking assay. Finally, [Cu-64]Cu-NOTA-PEG(7)-H-Tz was evaluated in a pretargeted imaging study and compared to [In-111]In-DOTA-PEG(11)-BisPy-Tz. Despite minor differences, this study indicated that both evaluated tetrazines are equally suited for pretargeted imaging.
