Paper Abstract

Fluorescence imaging using non-targeted fluorescent agents has been extensively studied during the last decade. Although proven feasible, tumor-specific imaging can be dramatically enhanced using tumor-specific fluorescent contrast agents. Clinical translation of these agents is challenging and hurdles have to be overcome. In this overview paper we recapitulate the key regulations for first-in-human studies with fluorescent agents, provide insight in different strategies for fast clinical translation and discuss how clinical introduction of the first fluorescent targeted agents was achieved.
