ABSTRACT

Auger electron emitting radionuclides have potential for the therapy of small-size cancers because of their high level of cytotoxicity, low-energy, high linear energy transfer, and short range biologic effectiveness. Auger emitter 165Er (T1/2 = 10.3 h, IEC = 100%) is a potent nuclide for targeted radionuclide therapy. 165Er excitation function via 165Ho(p,n)165Er, 165Ho(d,2n)165Er, 166Er(p,2n)165Tm→165Er, 166Er(d,3n)165Tm→165Er, natEr(p,xn)165Tm→165Er and 164Er(d,n)165Tm→165Er reactions were calculated by ALICE/91, ALICE/ASH (GDH Model & Hybrid Model) and TALYS-1.2 (Equilibrium & Pre-Equilibrium) codes and compared to existing data. Requisite for optimal thicknesses of targets were obtained by SRIM code for each reaction.
