Radiologic conjugating agents

What are Radiologic conjugating agents?

Radiological conjugating agents (RCA) are drugs or diagnostic agents that contain a radioactive substance and a conjugating agent.

When administered the conjugating agent and the attached radioactive substance specifically bind and accumulate in the target cells.

When used as a diagnostic agent the radioactive target cells can be detected for imaging purposes. As a cancer treatment, RCA causes cellular damage to the target cells due the emission from radioactive substance.
