Example text

Heterogeneity in absorbed dose reduces the therapeutic effectiveness. The more heterogeneity, the bigger the loss in effectiveness. Tumor cells that experience the least dose are most likely to act as foci of recurrence and treatment failure, The implication is that strategies shouldbe designed to minimize the impact of dosimetric heterogeneity on tumor response. The use of “cocktails” of radionuclides and targeting vectors, combined modality therapy, and, possibly, fractionation of targeted radiothera~y may be useful strategies for clinical investigation.

Despite a relations~pbetween toxicity and vari- ous predictors, this correlation would not be sufficient to dose escalate without the option of hematologic rescue. Although often desirable when feasible, individualized tracer studies vary in their correspondence to subsequent therapeutic dosesof the same agent (75). Therefore, tracer studies cannot always predict the dose limiting toxicity. This is illustrated by Macey et al. when adjunct treatment with interferon was felt to enhance marrow toxicity('76).

Although Table 3 provides tumor and normal organ dosimetry estimates from various trials of IV or IA administration of radiolabeled antibodies for solid tumors, a study of leukemic patients (50) is also included for comparison of mmow doses since the marrow is targeted in leukemic patients due to disease involvement. Among these patients the marrow dose was generally greater than BOO-fold over that in patients with solid tumors not known to have marrow involvement. Even the relatively low marrow doses reported for the solid-tumor patients resulted in dose-limiting marrow suppression.
