Radiopharmaceuticals are unique formulations comprising radioisotopes that are used in clinical areas for diagnosis and therapy. These medicinal drugs are administered by a radio pharmacist, a medical professional who specializes in nuclear medicine. They are taken in the form of a pill or injected into a vein or cavity of the patient’s body. Once they reach the targeted location, they release radioactive agents to destroy the tumor cells. As a result, radiopharmaceuticals are used to treat thyroid, brain, lymphoma and other types of cancer that have spread to the bones.
The increasing prevalence of cancerous diseases on account of the rising aging population and unhealthy dietary patterns represent the key factors contributing to the growing use of radiopharmaceuticals across the globe. Apart from this, the escalating number of diagnostic centers is also supporting the market. Moreover, the rising number of oncologists that are suggesting disease-targeted cancer therapy, which utilizes drugs to target specific proteins and genes involved in the development of cancer cells, are positively influencing the overall sales. Furthermore, the use of radiolabeled peptides and monoclonal antibodies for the diagnosis and treatment of cancerous tumors, along with rising healthcare expenditures, is strengthening the market growth. Other major factors anticipated to propel the growth of the market include the increasing use of radiopharmaceuticals by oncologists to track radioactivity throughout the body and determine the presence of cancer cells and the increasing shift towards positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) scans.
