Molecularly specific contrast agents are needed to investigate other tissue markers, but few agents are considered readily clinically translatable. Our objective was to explore the potentially clinically translatable combination of antibodies (Ab) and the FDA-approved near-infrared, fluorescent dye indocyanine green (ICG) for sPA imaging of CD276, a molecular marker differentially expressed in breast cancer1, which may improve accuracy of ultrasound imaging for breast cancer detection. Methods: Succinimidyl ester modified ICG was conjugated to monoclonal Ab specific to the CD276 marker. Ab-dye binding ratios were determined using spectrophotometric analysis and protein concentration was determined with a standard BCA assay. A transgenic mouse model for breast cancer development (FVB/N Tg(MMTV/PyMT634Mul) was used to assess the ability of sPA imaging to detect the accumulation of CD276-ICG contrast agent in breast cancer. Mice with invasive breast adenocarcinoma (10-12 weeks of age) were injected intravenously
