Therapeutic nuclear medicines or radiopharmaceuticals are radioactive material used to treat certain medical conditions. This is also known as nuclear medicine therapy, which is most frequently used to treat an overactive thyroid gland – a condition known as hyperthyroidism or thyrotoxicosis. Few nuclear medicines are used to treat some type of cancer, relieve pain from cancer that has spread to bones and treating some type of arthritis. Nuclear medicine therapy is performed differently for different indications. While treatment of thyroid cancer or overactive thyroid gland, nuclear medicine is swallowed in a capsule or liquid form. Patients are usually treated as outpatients where single dose is needed in most of the cases. During treatment of joint pain (Arthritis), nuclear medicine is injected into joint fluid under local anaesthetic post which the joint is immobilized with the help of bandage or light splint. Bones affected due to spreading of pain caused by cancer is treated by injecting radiopharmaceutical in a vein in the arms.
Therapeutic Nuclear Medicines Market: Drivers & Restraints
Revenue growth in the therapeutic nuclear medicines market is expected to be fuelled by factors such as rising awareness about nuclear medicine and increasing number of cancer cases. Increasing prevalence of arthritis and hyperthyroidism is expected to affect positively on therapeutic nuclear medicines market. Few more factors such as non-invasive treatment by nuclear medicines, targeted treatment which is less traumatic than surgery and quick discharge are projected to favor the therapeutic nuclear medicines market over the forecast period.
Some factors that can pull back the market are rise in the cost of the procedure, low supply of several radiopharmaceuticals and side effects associated with use of nuclear medicine. Apart from these factors, short half-life of radiopharmaceuticals is expected to hamper the revenue growth of global therapeutic nuclear medicines market over the forecast period.
