Cardinal Health (NYSE: CAH) and IRE ELiT (the radiopharmaceutical subsidiary of IRE Group) are working to expand patient access to novel radiopharmaceuticals for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging as demand in the United States (U.S.) continues to grow. Cardinal Health is the preferred U.S. distributor of the IRE ELiT 100 mCi Germanium-68/Gallium-68 radionuclide generator (Ge-68/Ga-68 Galli Eo® generator) in support of clinical investigational trials, pre-commercial research and post-approval commercial sales in the U.S. and its territories, including Puerto Rico.


IRE submits its request for a single permit for the construction of a 100% Walloon cyclotron

In 2020, IRE signed a contract with IBA to build a cyclotron on its site in Fleurus. This state-of-the-art equipment will enable the IRE to produce Germanium-68 locally, a key raw material to enable the institute to contribute even more to the fight against cancer. The IRE is pursuing the progress of this project by submitting today an application for a single permit (urban planning and environmental permit).
