In order to use of an alpha emitter for targeted alpha therapy, we have started the production and the utilization of $$^{211}$$At using 30 MeV $$^4$$He particle in the $$^{209}$$Bi($$^4$$He, 2n)$$^{211}$$At nuclear reaction at cyclotron facilities of Osaka University and JAEA Takasaki. In addition to that, we have been developing a $$^{211}$$Rn/$$^{211}$$At generator to expand the availability of $$^{211}$$At to wide range of populations far away from cyclotron facilities. The results of studies on the At-chemistry for clinical use and on the development of the $$^{211}$$Rn/$$^{211}$$At generator will be presented. And a review of current status of targeted alpha therapy in Japan will be also introduced.
