Cardinal Health Extends Radiopharmaceutical Manufacturing Network to Nebraska

his innovative technology is an important tool in improving local health care, because it helps us detect serious illnesses early and determine the effectiveness of related treatments."

In addition to FDG, the new cyclotron can produce a variety of other PET imaging agents to support oncology, neurology and cardiac imaging procedures, including new radiopharmaceuticals for use in clinical trials. The imaging agents produced at the facility will not only diagnose and treat disease at earlier stages, but they can also help pharmaceutical companies evaluate efficacy of new therapeutic agents, saving time and reducing costs associated with bringing new medications to market.

"Making PET products more accessible to clinicians and patients is critical to providing the highest level of care today, but it is also important to the future of molecular imaging," said John Rademacher, president and general manager of specialty and nuclear pharmacy services for Cardinal Health. "While pharmaceutical companies bring great expertise in new drug development, Cardinal Health acts as a commercialization catalyst that has the manufacturing scale to rapidly bring novel agents to the broader U.S. health care market."

Cardinal Health operates the largest radiopharmacy network in the United States, with nearly 160 nuclear pharmacy locations that compound and dispense radiopharmaceuticals that aid in the early detection and treatment of disease. The company also operates 27 cyclotrons that support the dispensing of PET products from more than 90 of its nuclear pharmacy locations. Its combination of nuclear pharmacy expertise and the size of its network allows Cardinal Health to reach more than 85 percent of all U.S. hospitals within three hours and to provide service and clinical expertise to the nuclear medicine community. Cardinal Health is also the largest employer of nuclear pharmacists in the world.
