An imaging agent composed of panitumumab, a humanized anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) monoclonal antibody, conjugated to the near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent dye IRDye800, that can potentially be used for the imaging of EGFR-expressing tumors. Upon administration of panitumumab-IRDye800, the panitumumab moiety targets and binds to EGFR expressed on tumor cells. Upon fluorescence imaging of IRDye800, the tumor cells can be detected. Check for active clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
