Special Issue Information
In the past decades, the development and application of targeted radiopharmaceuticals for the imaging and treatment of cancer have been an emerging area of research, not only in the field of nuclear medicine but also in that of cancer research in general. In the late 1980s–early 1990s, the first successful preclinical and clinical studies were performed with a targeted radiopharmaceutical. Following this success, a broad range of targeted radiopharmaceuticals directed against different cancer types have been developed. Over time, many research breakthroughs occurred, which led to the improvement of targeted radiopharmaceuticals and their application. As a result of these breakthroughs, a radiopharmaceutical was recently EMA- and FDA-approved for the treatment of neuroendocrine tumours. Despite the major advances in the development of radiopharmaceuticals that have been made over the years, there is still room for improvement. This Special Issue of Pharmaceutics will focus on novel advances in the development of radiopharmaceuticals for cancer imaging and therapy. This includes, but is not limited to, studies on the production and use of novel radionuclides, the development and application of new radiotracers, and the application of advanced strategies to improve radiopharmaceuticals’ pharmacokinetics. Short communications, original research papers, and reviews are welcome.
