How does Magic Bullet Therapy work for Prostate Cancer ?

Prostate-specific membrane antigen radiology ( PSMA-RLT) with 177 Lu, holds great potential as the Prostate Specific Member antigen peptide binds itself specifically to prostate cancer cells but not to normal healthy cells. With a range of 0.1mm, this method allows selective irradiation, killing cancerous cells with minimal damage to healthy tissue.

The Alpha emitters work by inducing clusters of DNA damage such as double- stranded breaks and cellular cell modifications which leads to destruction of cancerous cells due to cell cycle arrest.
