Intratumoral microdistribution of radiolabeled anti-CD37 murine monoclonal antibody, [131I]MB-1, in lymph nodes from five patients with non-Hodgkin's B-cell lymphoma following radioimmunotherapy were evaluated by microautoradiography and image analysis of macroautoradiographs. Microdistribution of radioactivity was highly heterogeneous: silver grain counts varied from 28-70 to 8-10 per 400X field, and the coefficients of variations calculated by image analysis ranged between 42.5 and 79.3%. Variable radiation doses delivered could have contributed to the limited durability of tumor regression.
