Title: Prospects for antibody-targeted radiotherapy of cancer

In this series of letters, the prospects for antibody-targeted radiotherapy of cancer are reviewed. Issues discussed include modelling, especially in connection with purging tumour cells from bone marrow as part of leukemia treatment, and the application of models to regional intracavity instillation (e.g. ovarian cancer), the distribution of radioactivity throughout the tumour mass and the tumour volume doubling time. (U.K.).
