NCI Drug Dictionary


gallium Ga 68-labeled MLN6907 
A radioconjugate containing a monoclonal antibody directed against guanylyl cyclase C (GCC) labeled with the radioisotope gallium Ga 68, with positron emission tomography (PET) imaging activity. The monoclonal antibody moiety of MLN6907 selectively binds to GCC, a transmembrane receptor normally found on intestinal cells and dopaminergic neurons in the brain, that is also overexpressed on the surface of a variety of cancer cells. Upon internalization of the agent and PET, tumors expressing GCC can be visualized. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
