212pb tcmc trastuzumab - a radioimmunoconjugate containing the recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody trastuzumab conjugated with the bifunctional chelating agent tcmc ((1,4,7,10 tetra (2 carbamoyl methyl) cyclododecane), and radiolabeled with the alpha emitting isotope lead pb 212, with potential anti tumor activity. Upon administration, the antibody moiety of lead pb 212 tcmc trastuzumab binds with high affinity to the extracellular domain of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (her2); after internalization, the radioisotope moiety delivers a cytotoxic dose of alpha radiation to the her2 expressing tumor cells. Her2, a tyrosine kinase receptor, is overexpressed on the cell surface of a variety of cancer cell types.
