Radiopharmaceuticals Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends And
Forecast, 2012 - 2018 [ ]  

    Radiopharmaceuticals imply the usage of radiation for non-invasive treatment and
diagnosis of various diseases. Utilization of these molecules for medical purposes in
PET and SPECT imaging has changed the entire algorithm of disease diagnosis. With rise
in the aging population globally coupled with increasing rate of chronic cardiovascular,
oncology and neurology diseases, there is tremendous growth potential in this market,
especially in developing nations.

    Similarly, the use of radiolabeled isotopes with peptides and monoclonal antibodies
has opened new boulevards for the growth of the global radiopharmaceuticals market. Many
radiopharmaceuticals use technetium-99m (Tc-99m) that has many useful properties of
gamma-emitting tracer nuclide.  

    Radiopharmaceuticals [ ] are
majorly used to diagnose cancer, tumors, biliary tract blockage, bone diseases, bone
marrow diseases, brain diseases, colorectal disease, disorders of iron metabolism and
absorption, heart disease, heart muscle damage (infarct), impaired flow of cerebrospinal
fluid in the brain, kidney diseases, liver diseases, lung diseases, parathyroid
diseases, parathyroid cancer, pernicious anemia, improper absorption of vitamin B12 from
intestines, red blood cell diseases, salivary gland diseases, spleen diseases, stomach
and intestinal bleeding, stomach problems, tear duct blockage, thyroid diseases, thyroid
cancer and urinary bladder diseases.  

    This may be given to the patient in a number of ways, for e.g. they may be given
through the mouth, through injections or placed into the eye or into the bladder. It is
a small treatment, which includes use of simple substances containing radioactive
isotopes. While treating cancer, these radioactive agents are taken up in the cancerous
area to destroy the affected tissues. It works effectively by targeting the areas in the
body where the cancer is present. Individuals are suggested to intake
radiopharmaceuticals only under the direct supervision of a doctor.
