Abstract: The usefulness of radioimmunotherapy (RIT) for infectious diseases was recently demonstrated for several fungal and bacterial infections, but the mechanisms by which RIT is effective against microbes are uncertain. Methods. We investigated the interaction between polysaccharide capsule binding 18B7 monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) labeled with a-emitter 213Bi and Cryptococcus neoformans cells as well as between 213Bi-18B7 and components of immune system, both in vitro and in vivo.
