Tunable Bonds: A Step Towards Targeted At-211 Cancer Therapy

Wednesday, May 31, 2023 - 10:13 in Health & Medicine

The astatine isotope astatine-211 (At-211) shows promise as a cancer therapy, but scientists know little about how it interacts with chemicals. Researchers have now discovered a new tunable bonding interaction between At-211 and a class of chemicals known as ketones. This discovery has the potential to improve cancer therapy drugs by linking At-211 to cancer targeting molecules.
