Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second tumor most diagnosed in men and their sixth cause of death worldwide.

Abstract

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second tumor most diagnosed in men and their sixth cause of death worldwide. A prompt detection of cancer development could avoid invasive therapy and improve general survival. The prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is one of the most promising targets for the detection of PCa, since that it’s overexpressed in more than 95% of tumor tissue. In the last years, PSMA-based monoclonal antibody (mAb) radiopharmaceuticals showed a great specificity to early localize PCa and its metastasis. Recently, an Iodine-131 labelled single-chain variable fragment, obtained from the mAb D2B (131I-scFvD2B), demonstrated a high uptake in PSMA-tumor cells and a fast clearance from the non-target tissue2,3. In this work, a new radiopharmaceutical for SPECT imaging based on scFvD2B labelled with technetium-99m (99mTc-HYNIC-GGC-scFvD2B) was synthetized.
