The emergence and resurgence of radiotherapeutics for cancer treatment
Cancer treatment with radiopharmaceuticals is growing rapidly with many new radiotherapeutics either in development or early phase trials. Molecular radiotherapy and theragnostics promise to offer significant advances in cancer care and the market is expected to grow by 30% per annum for the foreseeable future. This presentation will review the potential impact of this expansion for industry, academia, and patient benefit.
