Lantheus diversifies supply of radioisotope

Lantheus Medical has signed NTP Radioisotopes as a supplier of molybdenum-99, which generates technetium, a key component of Lantheus' SPECT nuclear cardiology agent Cardiolite. The agreement provides a second source of the radioisotope generator, which Lantheus had previously obtained primarily from the aging Canadian nuclear reactor at Chalk River (New moly-99 shortage threatens following Chalk River reactor shutdown). NTP Radioisotopes, a subsidiary of the South African Nuclear Energy Corporation, will ship the isotope at regular intervals. To further bolster the new agreement, NTP has partnered with Belgian radiochemical producer IRE to cosupply the isotope to Lantheus.
