The partners in the venture are Rafarma and the Korean pharmaceutical company Woods Medical Care.

Woods Medical Care, Inc. was established to grow into a global pharmaceutical company producing radiopharmaceuticals by collaborating with Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute.

International cooperation between companies includes:

1) Release of packaging of microsphere-based products for the East Asian markets and their promotion for the treatment of cancer;

2) Bench assembly of medical accelerators for lithium-capture therapy for cancer treatment;

3) Promotion of lithium capture technology in East Asia as a service to hospitals to promote this therapy for cancer treatment;

4) Organization of production and construction in the Busan Technopark of a plant for the production of microsources for brachytherapy based on iodine isotopes for treatment.

The potential revenue of the created enterprise can reach $50 million in the first 5 years, and the potential profit exceed $20 million in 4 years. The parties estimate the required investment in the project to be about $30 million.
