TAT-11: Astatine-211: The Chemistry Infrastructure

Ottawa, ON, Canada (UroToday.com) Despite the availability of At211 production via Bi209(alpha, 2n)At211 at cyclotrons, alpha therapy research suffers from the lack of a chemical infrastructure for producing an end-product At211-conjugated ligand. Dr. Lindegren described such an automated infrastructure developed at Gothenburg. He also described a clinical trial for treating ovarian cancer with 200 MBq of At211.
