Title: Bulk production and evaluation of high specific activity 186g Re for cancer therapy using enriched 186 WO 3 targets in a proton beam

Abstract

Rhenium-186 g (t 1/2 = 3.72 d) is a β– emitting isotope suitable for theranostic applications. Current production methods rely on reactor production by way of the reaction 185Re(n,γ) 186gRe, which results in low specific activities limiting its use for cancer therapy. Production via charged particle activation of enriched 186W results in a 186gRe product with a much specific activity, allowing it to be used more broadly for targeted radiotherapy applications. Furthermore, this targets the unmet clinical need for more efficient radiotherapeutics.
