iodine I 131-labeled anti-CEA/anti-HSG bispecific monoclonal antibody TF2

Iodine I 131-labeled anti-CEA/anti-HSG bispecific monoclonal antibody TF2 binds to the tumor-associated antigen (TAA) CEA on CEA-expressing tumor cells; these cells may then be radioimaged scintigraphically. Check for active clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
