Does anyone know about LU 177 study in the Netherlands?


Recommended Posts

LU-177 is a radioisotope. I believe it is used for carcinoid (Carleen may have more info). They can attach the iosotope to somatostatin

It is like using radiation therapy but it is internal as opposed to external radiation. The radioisotope can be attached to another molecule (that seeks out cancer cells) so that the radiation targets the cancer cell.

It is also called brachytherapy.

Indium 111 and Yttrium 90 are other radioisotopes.
