Visualization And Quantification Of Anastomotic Perfusion In Colorectal Surgery Using Near-Infrared Fluorescence

ABSTRACT Background Anastomotic leakage (AL) is one of the most troublesome complications in colorectal surgery. Recently, near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging has been used intraoperatively to detect sentinel lymph nodes and visualize the blood supply at the region of interest (ROI). The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of visualization and quantification of…

NCI Drug Dictionary Adds Definition For Fluorescent Antibody SGM-101

FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY SGM-101 A near infrared-emitting fluorochrome-labeled anti-carcinoembryonic antigen (ACE; anti-CEA) monoclonal antibody, with potential diagnostic imaging activity. Upon administration, the fluorescent antibody SGM-101 binds CEA-overexpressing cancer cells. Upon fluorescence imaging, the fluorochrome can be visualized and CEA-overexpressing cancer cell can be imaged and detected. CEA, a tumor-associated antigen (TAA), is overexpressed on the surface…

SGM-101: An Innovative Near-Infrared Dye-Antibody Conjugate That Targets CEA For Fluorescence-Guided Surgery.

Abstract PURPOSE: Fluorescence-guided surgery (FGS) provides surgeons with new opportunities to improve real-time cancer nodule detection and tumor margin visualization. Currently, the most important challenge in this field is the development of fluorescent dyes that specifically target tumors. We developed, characterized and evaluated SGM-101, an innovative antibody-dye conjugate in which the fluorochrome BM104, which has…
