Abstract: Alpha-particle emitters display high linear energy transfer combined with short range and are promising for treatment of metastasized tumors. Indeed, efficiency and high specificity of tumor-specific antibodies labelled with alpha emitting nuclides were described in vitro and in vivo. Radiolabeled somatostatin analogues with high affinity to somatostatin receptor overexpressing tumors are an attractive option for peptide-receptor radionuclide therapy of metastasized neuroendocrine tumors and great clinical success has been demonstrated with Lutetium-177 as therapeutic isotope. In this study, we investigated cellular effects of the alpha-particle emitter Actinium-225 in comparison to the beta-particle emitter Lutetium-177 labelled DOTATOC in vitro. Cellular studies were performed in p53 dependent and somatostatin receptor expressing rat pancreatic acinar carcinoma cells (AR42J).
