What is Lutetium PSMA Therapy?

Advanced prostate cancer is treated with lutetium PSMA therapy, sometimes referred to as lutetium-177 prostate-specific membrane antigen therapy or lutetium-177 PSMA therapy. The protein known as PSMA, or prostate-specific membrane antigen, is present on the outer surface of prostate cancer cells.

Lutetium In PSMA therapy, a chemical that precisely targets and binds to the PSMA protein on prostate cancer cells is used in conjunction with the radioactive isotope lutetium-177. This minimises radiation harm to neighbouring healthy tissues while allowing precision radiation delivery to the cancer cells

Treatments

During the Lutetium PSMA Therapy procedure, a small amount of Lutetium-177 is injected into your bloodstream. The radioactive molecules specifically seek out and attach themselves to PSMA receptors on cancer cells, delivering a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor sites. This targeted approach allows for effective destruction of cancer cells while minimizing side effects.
