Rising Application in Treatment of Cardiovascular Disorders Drives Global Radiopharmaceutical Theranostics Market Growth

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are among the most prevalent chronic diseases of the 21st century, with a high mortality rate. Due to their sedentary lifestyle, CVDs are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in developed countries. In addition, obesity and diabetes, and related diseases are associated with cardiovascular disease and are becoming comorbid. In addition, a complication such as coronary artery obstruction is one of the number one causes of death in adults, resulting in thrombus plaque in the intima of the arterial wall, mainly in the carotid artery. According to data from the National Center for Biotechnology, around 17.7 million people died worldwide in 2015 due to cardiovascular diseases. In this regard, it is estimated that mortality from cardiovascular disease could increase to 22 million by 2030. Therapeutic applications in cardiovascular diseases include nanomedicine in angina pectoris, myocarditis, myocardial infarction, pericardial disease, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and stroke. Theranostics nanomedicines can prolong systemic circulation, evade host defense systems, and deliver theranostics agents to the target site for imaging and therapy at the cellular and molecular levels.

As per the 2022 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is a leading cause of death among men and women in the US. Heart disease was a cause of ~697,000 deaths, i.e., 1 in 5 deaths, in the US in 2020. A National Institute of Health (NIH) report states that theranostics nanoparticles have gained significant attention in the medical field, as the techniques help overcome complexities and pathophysiological complications associated with CVDs. Cardiovascular imaging of atherosclerosis patients provides pathophysiological evidence that can help treat CVDs. Further, theranostics nanoparticles can be combined with a range of imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and computed tomography (CT). Various clinical research studies have been conducted in clinical laboratories so far. A three-in-one therapeutic complex has been constructed, by combining a polymeric photoacoustic probe with nanoparticles-PLCDP@PMH. Clinical in-vivo evaluations reveal that the PLCDP@PMH provides lucrative advantages for the theranostics approach to early-stage atherosclerosis detection in patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is radiopharmaceutical theranostics?

Radiopharmaceuticals are radioisotopes that are bound to biological molecules that target specific tissues, organs, or cells within the human body. Radioisotopes emitting gamma rays are useful for diagnostic imaging where the radiation escapes the body. Nuclear medicine imaging generally utilizes radioactive isotopes attached to specific molecules to examine biological processes, such as disease pathophysiology. Every radiopharmaceutical is designed to travel to a specific location in the body, and as soon as it reaches the site, it releases radioactive substances that kill the tumor cells. Radiopharmaceuticals can target various malignancies such as prostate cancer, heart disease, thyroid cancer, and others. These drugs can also be used as both therapies and diagnostics, known as 'theranostics’. In theranostics, radiopharmaceuticals are used for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes by targeting one specific tumor receptor.
