TOMSK, Jul 20 – RIA Tomsk. Tomsk polytechnics at the TPU Nuclear Research Reactor began the production of lutetium-177 trichloride, a chemical compound that can later be used for the manufacture of anticancer drugs, the head of the TPU Laboratory for Isotopic Analysis and Technologies Igor Shamanin told RIA Tomsk.

Earlier it was reported that in 2019, for the first time in Russia, at the TPU Nuclear Research Reactor a trial batch of lutetium-177 isotopes was produced, the synthesis of which is carried out using a new technology developed in Tomsk. New isotopes were planned to be used for the treatment of malignant tumors with fewer side effects than their counterparts.

"We have started the production of a compound of the isotope lutetium-177 trichloride. It will be used to synthesize radiopharmaceuticals for the targeted destruction of tumors. By the end of the year, we will send samples to the Karpov Institute of Physical Chemistry for an independent examination. There radiochemists will look at the quality of our lutetium trichloride", – Shamanin said.

According to the agency's interlocutor, in the fall, a radiopharmaceutical based on the new compound will be produced at the TPU Nuclear Research Reactor, and its laboratory and preclinical tests will start in 2021.

Tomsk Polytechnic University Nuclear Research Reactor – is the only operating university nuclear reactor in Russia. It was launched in 1967 and has been upgraded several times since then. The reactor conducts promising research in the field of environmental management and materials science, nuclear medicine. TPU is one of the leading Russian centers for the development and production of radiopharmaceuticals – drugs containing radioisotopes.
