"Comparison of biodistribution of ¹¹¹In-Tropolone leukocytes and 125I-human nonspecific polyclonal IgG in normal and induced inflammation mice for detection of inflammation "
Shah Hosseini S, Hadizad T, Babaei MH, Najafi R


Human nonspecific polyclonal IgG and granulocytes, which accumulate in inflammation foci, were radiolabeled with 125I and ¹¹¹In-Tropolone, respectively. Biodistribution of these two radiolabels was assessed in normal and inflammation-induced mice. 125I-IgG showed better localization to the inflammated areas. Blood levels with ¹¹¹In-Tropolone leukocytes were lower at all time points. In addition, the inflammatory thigh-to-blood ratios showed an improvement, whereas the ratios of inflammatory thigh-to-other normal tissues were higher for 125I-IgG than ¹¹¹In-Tropolone leukocytes. In conclusion, labeled IgG due to better localization in inflammated sites and higher target-to-background ratios is more suitable agent than labeled leukocytes for immunoscintigraphy of inflammation.
