Rosatom Will Sell Iodine-125 To Treat Prostate Cancer

State Corporation "Rosatom" in 2016 plans to start commercial sales of micro sources with the radioactive isotope iodine-125, which is required for the treatment of prostate cancer. This was reported in the annual report of "Atomenergoprom" for the year 2015.

      The document states that iodine-125 in the required quantities is produced at two plants of Rosatom - Research Institute of Atomic Reactors (Dimitrovgrad) and in Physics and Energy Institute named after Leypunsky (Obninsk).

      "Atomenergoprom" also notes that the introduction of Russian sources significantly reduces the cost of surgeries, as they are almost five times cheaper than imported counterparts.

      In October 2015, "Rosatom" reported that the Medical Radiological Research Center named after Tsyba in Obninsk, Russia's first operation to treat prostate cancer using a full Russian micro sources of the isotope iodine-125 was held.

      The project started about 10 years ago, and as a result of its implementation a domestic high-tech product at the level of world analogues is received; it also has a significant export potential.
