Abstract:
The potential of targeted therapy with the alpha emitter 213Bi has been successfully demonstrated in a large number of preclinical studies and several clinical trials have provided evidence for its feasibility, safety and therapeutic efficacy. This review describes methods for the production of 225Ac and 225Ac/213Bi radionuclide generators, gives an overview of selected preclinical studies and summarizes the current clinical experience with 213Bi.
