The Future: Radionanomedicine Trailblazes

Conventional and modern medicine is providing people with healthier and longer lives, but researchers still want to make a new developments and discoveries. The advances in pharmaceutical technology have propelled the usual medications into greater heights, making the future of medicine brighter.

 

The new medicinal technology, radionanomedicine, is the simultaneous application of nuclear medicine with nanomedicine. This takes advantage of radiomedicine using trace technology, where minute amounts of materials are biologically distributed in vivo. Radionanomedicine can be greatly used for targeted delivery and imaging for theranostic - therapeutic and diagnostic - purposes.

 

The importance of nuclear medicine's theranostic application has recently grown due to the lack of treatment courses or options raised by individualized patient medications. Examples are imaging technologies: positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), which help elucidate biodistribution and identify its potential for therapeutic success.

 

Nuclear medicine is based on tracer technology, enabling its entry into the clinical field despite the radiation hazards of radionuclides. Patient use only require very minute amounts of radionuclides or radioisotopes and does not necessarily raise any concern of a hazardous pharmacologic effect.

 

Radiopharmaceuticals are required to be produced under controlled conditions as with any other medicinal products. They are tested for their quality using validated operating procedures prior to patient administration.

 

 

The production of radiopharmaceuticals requires quality and delivery by manufacturers, as well as the medical personnel in the safe handling of large quantities of radioactive substances and chemical processing. These include the operation and maintenance of processing facilities, complying with the guidelines of the current good manufacturing practices (cGMP), guaranteeing effective quality assurance and control systems, radioactive material transport, and the registration of drug products to the governing health authorities.

 

Esco Pharma’s units can serve as the primary engineering controls for the manufacture of radiopharmaceuticals:

 

Blood Cell Labelling Isolator

 

Technetium Dispensing Isolator

Radiopharmacy Hood

 

 

Esco Pharma has a vision of providing the best for its clients. As the generation progresses, so does the company. With the option of customizing various products of the company, the alignment of Esco Pharma to the adjustment of what will be the future, continues.
