Selected results are presented and discussed concerning nuclear data relevant to the production of innovative medical radionuclides of special interest, as from research activities brought up at INFN LASA Laboratory, with reference to irradiation experiments at the K = 38 Cyclotron JRC-Ispra Cyclotron Laboratory. Measurements of excitation functions of the involved nuclear reactions are considered, in comparison with corresponding theoretical calculations, especially including radiation detection measurements, through the relevant instruments, and the requested radiochemistry studies. The considered radionuclides and the relevant production reactions are specified in the following introduction, also concerning recent and new measurements.
