Title: BIOCOMPATIBLE MICROBUBBLES TO DELIVER RADIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS TO TUMORS, ATHEROSCLEROTIC PLAQUES, JOINTS AND OTHER TARGETED SITES
Abstract:
A composition and method for targeted use of radionuclide therapy for the treatment of cancer and cancerous tumors, atherosclerotic plaques, joints and other targeted sites. Microparticles, microbubbles, or nanoparticles deliver therapeutic doses of radiation, included radiation from alpha emitting radionuclides, to sites in a patient. The delivery may be targeted by targeting agents linked to the microparticles, microbubbles, or nanoparticles or by the external application of energy, or both.
