Targeted radionuclide therapy (TRNT) has proven to be successful in oncology over the last decade (1–5). In TRNT a radionuclide is linked to a molecule that selectively binds to over-expressed receptors of cancer cells, allowing for a targeted approach in cancer therapy. Accumulation of the radiopharmaceutical in tumor tissue delivers toxic levels of radiation directly to the malicious tumor cells minimizing dose given to healthy tissue.
