    Abstract:

    Local hyperthermia and the hypoxic cytotoxin SR 4233 were administered to nude mice with 693 +/- 47 mm3 (mean +/- SE) s.c. HCT-8 human colonic adenocarcinoma xenografts in an attempt to enhance the antitumor effects of radioimmunotherapy. Biodistribution studies revealed preferential binding of NR-Lu-10, a murine monoclonal antibody, to the tumors compared with an isotype-matched control antibody, CCOO16-3.A single injection of 25 microCi 90Y-NR-Lu-10 significantly inhibited tumor growth (control versus 90Y-NR-Lu-10: P = 0.048). The administration of hyperthermia at 41.5 degrees C for 1 h immediately following the injection of 111In-labeled NR-Lu-10 up-regulated tumor-associated antigen expression and increased antibody uptake in the tumors by 73% (P = 0.001) without significantly affecting antibody uptake in normal tissues. However, the heat treatment did not produce a more homogeneous distribution of the antibodies in the tumors and did not significantly enhance the tumor growth delay produced by 90Y-NR-Lu-10 (P = 0.07). The administration of local hyperthermia at 43.0 degrees C for 1 h, on the other hand, had direct cytotoxic effects (P = 0.03) and enhanced the tumor growth delay produced by 90Y-NR-Lu-10 (P = 0.01). SR 4233 also enhanced the tumor growth delay produced by 90Y-NR-Lu-10 (P = 0.03). The greatest antitumor effects were observed when both hyperthermia at 43.0 degrees C and SR 4233 were administered in combination with 90Y-NR-Lu-10 (P = 0.002). No toxicity was produced by the local hyperthermia, and the only toxicities produced by 90Y-NR-Lu-10 and SR 4233 were neutropenia and weight loss.
