Nuclear medicine is a kind of special medicine containing radioisotopes, which is intended for diagnosis and treatment. Nuclear medicine focuses on diagnosis, but it is gradually shifting towards treatment. Targeted therapy is made possible by the advent of radiolabeled antibodies, which attach only to the target site and deliver radiation directly to cancer cells. Currently, about 100 radioactive molecules have been discovered in the nuclear drug industry, unleashing their diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
In recent years, as cancer morbidity and mortality rise, radiotherapy is playing an increasingly important role in cancer treatment, and the increase of patients has further promoted the development of nuclear medicine applications. Against the background of increasing R&D investment in the global nuclear medicine field, United Well Technologies also began to make active layout of the R&D of specific diagnostic and targeted α-therapeutic drugs in view of the development trend of the nuclear drug field.
