TAT-10: Correspondence between alpha-particle emitter dosimetry and normal organ toxicity
Healthy neu-N mice were injected intravenously with 15, 22, 30, and 44 KBq of Ac225-anti-PD-L1-BC. The mice were sacrificed when one of three conditions were met: >20% weight loss, evidence of pain or distress, the 100 day endpoint was reached. The liver, spleen, kidneys, and thymus were removed and sectioned for imaging with an alpha camera [see next paper for a description of an alpha camera].
Liver and spleen received the highest doses: 738 and 615 mGy/kBq respectively. The kidneys received 138 mGy/kBq. The dose was uniform in the liver so macrodosimetry should give an accurate measure and the liver will determine the maximum tolerated dose. Activity was very non-uniform in the kidneys, spleen, and thymus. In the case of the kidneys, the non-uniformity may be attributed to a substantial contribution of the Bi213 which is preferentially absorbed in the renal cortex
