Radiotherapies are dramatically changing the way patients are treated in a wide variety of diseases, particularly for patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and other oncologic indications like metastatic lung, breast and prostate cancer. There is now a sizeable development effort with many clinical trials ongoing in this area; that includes theranostics with a focus on combining molecular targeting with radiation to detect and modulate the tumor microenvironment and cause radiation-induced cell death. Consequently, the dynamic market for innovative radiopharmaceuticals, whether they are intended for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes, has grown globally.
Academic institutions and biotech companies are increasingly contributing to these developments both in terms of scientific discovery and commercialization efforts. They aim for regulatory approval to image and/or treat specific oncology populations. Well-informed radiopharmaceutical clinical research and development remain crucial for getting diagnostic and therapeutic innovations to patients.
Join experts from Medpace’s radiation oncology, imaging, regulatory and operational team as they explore regulatory considerations, oncology trial management, and imaging advancements in a live webinar on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at 11am EST (4pm GMT/UK).
