It has been proposed that alpha emitting2l2Bi (t1/2 = 60 min) coupled to tumor-specific antibodies may be a useful radiotherapeutic agent. However, since Bi can accumulate in the kidney, it is necessary to characterize the factors influencing localization of Bi within this tissue in order to evaluate the potential for radiation damage to the renal system… CONTINUE READING
