There are several ongoing medical trials to use Bi-213 conjugated to monoclonal antibodies to kill tumor-cells of various cancer types. The institute is supplying Ac-225 generators for the test and is itself engaged in in-vitro cytotoxicity tests. The present supply of Ac-225 stems from Th-229 decay obtained from aged U-233. From possible alternative the reaction Ra-226 (p, 2n) Ac-225 is presently favoured. The fabrication of Ac-225 for Bi-213 generators will be described.
