Radiopharmaceuticals are pharmaceuticals that contain a radioactive nuclide, sometimes referred to as radionuclides or radioisotopes Radiopharmaceuticals are drugs that are bound to radioactive substances. The pharmaceutically active portion determines the activity that will be measured and the radioactive portion emits radiation that can be measured by the scanner. A number of radiopharmaceuticals are used in human imaging Radiopharmaceuticals are biologically active molecules labeled by radionuclides which provide a beneficial source of ionizing radiation mainly applied in diagnostic imaging and therapy. From: Reference Module in Chemistry, Molecular Sciences and Chemical Engineering, 201 Characteristics of Radiopharmaceuticals Radiopharmaceuticals are a drug grouping of unique medicinal formations. These formations use radioactive isotopes, also known as radioisotopes, in clinical diagnosis, as well as for therapeutic interventions Radiopharmaceuticals are radioactive labelled substances containing one or more radionuclide(s) suitable for adminis-tration to humans. The chemical and physical properties of the radiopharmaceutical affect its localization in the body, while the radioactive decay properties determine the detectio

The pharmaceutical is used to transport the radioisotope to a certain organ, tissues or particular cells within the body
A radiopharmaceutical is a preparation intended for in-vivo use that contains a radionuclide in the form of a simple salt or a complex. It may exist as a solid, liquid, gas or a pseudo gas Radiopharmaceuticals are essential to the performance of nuclear medicine procedures. These radioactive drugs consist of two components: a drug component for localization in a specific tissue or organ and a radioactive component for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. The majority of radiopharmaceuticals are used for diagnostic imaging procedures Many radiopharmaceuticals use technetium-99m (Tc-99m) which has many useful properties as a gamma-emitting tracer nuclide. In the book Technetium a total of 31 different radiopharmaceuticals based on Tc-99m are listed for imaging and functional studies of the brain, myocardium, thyroid, lungs, liver, gallbladder, kidneys, skeleton, blood and. the chemical properties of these radiopharmaceuticals without the potentially damaging effects of radiation. Rhenium is not radioactive, but emits fluorescent light, which eliminates the cell damage caused by radioactive substances while still allowing the imaging of cells. The chemical and photochemical properties of
Usually, radiopharmaceuticals contain at least two major components: • A radionuclide that provides the desired radiation characteristics. • A chemical compound with structural or chemical properties that determine the in vivo distribution and physiological behav-iour of the radiopharmaceutical. Radiopharmaceuticals should have severa Properties of the ideal diagnostic radiopharmaceutical 1. pure gamma emitter 2. 100 < gamma energy < 250 keV Radiopharmaceuticals, or medicinal radiocompounds, are a group of pharmaceutical drugs containing radioactive isotopes. Radiopharmaceuticals can be used as diagnostic and therapeutic agents. Radiopharmaceuticals emit radiation themselves, which is different from contrast media which absorb or alter external electromagnetism or ultrasound radiopharmaceutical. Otherwise it will affect the radiological safety of the patient. Radiochemical purity (RCP): It is the percentage of the total radioactivity present in the desired chemical form in a radiopharmaceutical. RCP plays an important role in both diagnostic as well as in the therapeutic of radiopharmaceuticals
2. Chemical Properties of Radioactive Substances: The artificial isotopes of a chemical element have the same properties as the natural ones and also a similar metabolic activity. Quantitative dissimilarities may occur since differences in the mass numbers may result in different mass in the diffusion and dissociation constant Therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals can be a radionuclide in simple ionic form (e.g. Na131I or H332PO4), in the form of inorganic complexes with suitable chelating agents (e.g. 153Sm-EDTMP, 186Re-HEDP), labeled to biomolecule such as peptides (e.g. 177Lu-DOTATATE) or antibodies (e.g. 90Y-anti-CD20 mono- clonal antibody) Advantages And Disadvantages Of Radiopharmaceuticals 784 Words4 Pages Isotopes are atoms that contain the same number of protons but have different numbers of neutrons (What is Isotope).

Radiopharmaceuticals constitute diagnostic and therapeutic tools for both clinical and preclinical applications. They are a blend of a tracer moiety that mediates a site specific accumulation and an effector: a radioisotope whose decay enables either molecular imaging or exhibits cytotoxic effects Einsteinium, a synthetic element with the symbol Es and atomic number 99, is a soft, silvery-white, paramagnetic metal.. It was discovered as a component of the debris of the first hydrogen bomb. radiopharmaceutical used in PET is typically synthesized, puriﬁed, formulated and analyzed within a timeframe of roughly 2-3 physical half-lives of the employed radionu-clide. For example, to obtain 11C-labeled radiopharma-ceutical in optimal radiochemical yield (RCY), a compromise has to be made between the chemical yield and the. .01 hr; Egamma 142 keV), low cost, and easy availability through the commercial 99Mo/99mTc generator, and chemical versatility of the element Gallium-68 was applied for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging already in the early beginnings of PET imaging.

The stability of radiopharmaceuticals can be improved by using chelating agents for radionuclide labeling (Lucia Tornesello et al., 2017). The chemical structures of typical chelators have been shown in Figure 2. The radionuclide may disengage from the peptide without an appropriate metal chelator, resulting in excessive imaging background.
selection of a particular radiopharmaceutical depends on the clinical question and organ or pathology of concern. Choice of the radiopharmaceutical to apply in diagnostic imaging and therapeutic nuclear medicine is typically based on the availability at the hospital, side effects, and its pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties  radiopharmaceutical manufacturing centres and centralized pharmacies involved in the production of kits. It will be a useful resource for the many hospital radiopharmacies that routinely use the kits to compound 99mTc radiopharmaceuticals, and a source of information for regulators of radiopharmaceuticals. Technetium-99m Radiopharmaceuticals Nuclear imaging used in diagnostic medicine requires the use of radiopharmaceuticals to make biological areas visible under a gamma camera. Although much success has been found in the use of technetium based imaging agents, their corresponding rhenium complexes can provide insight into the chemical properties of these radiopharmaceuticals without the potentially damaging effects of radiation

The term radiopharmaceutical denotes the association of a radionuclide and pharmaceutical, that is symbiosis of biological, chemical, and physical properties. Radiopharmaceuticals are approved for use in humans for diagnostic purposes chemical compounds whose molecules contain radionuclides This chemical form may range from elemental, molecular or ionic, to complex compounds formed by coordinate or covalent bonding of the radionuclide to either simple organic or inorganic molecules, or complex macromolecules.
