TAT-11: Nanoparticles for the Treatment of Metastati Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with Ac-225

Ottawa, ON, Canada (UroToday.com) Containment of radioisotope daughters following the first alpha recoil is a significant problem in targeted alpha therapy. Isotopes contained within a nanoparticle shelarebe effective in retaining the daughters. This study uses layered nanoparticles (NP) consisting of a 225Ac-doped (La0.5Gd0.5)PO4 core coated with four layers of GdPO4 and an outer layer of Au.

The gold layer facilitates linking to the tumor-specific antibody, in this case, mAb 201b. Mouse model showed high targeting efficiency and 73 % reduction in cell colonies in the lung. Over 90% of Bi213 was contained 24 hours after injection.
