Targeted Radionuclide Therapy (TRT) represents a paradigm shift in the field of oncology. This innovative form of treatment utilizes radioactive isotopes attached to molecules specifically designed to target and bind to cancer cells. Once connected, the radioactive substance delivers a lethal dose of radiation to the cancer cells, causing them to die or stop multiplying, while sparing nearby healthy cells.

The radioisotopes used in TRT are chosen for their specific properties, such as the type and energy of the radiation they emit, their half-life (how long they remain active), and how they are metabolized and eliminated from the body.

While radiation and chemotherapies have been instrumental in cancer treatment, they often come with severe side effects due to their non-selective nature. Here’s how TRT improves upon these traditional methods:
TRT represents an exciting development in the field of oncology, offering a new hope for cancer patients. As research and development continue, we can expect even more advanced and effective versions of this innovative treatment in the future.
