CPDC to produce critical medical radioisotopes for Isotopia Molecular

News   /  

Israel-based Isotopia Molecular Imaging and CPDC (Hamilton, Ontario) are pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement for the production and distribution of no-carrier-added Lutetium-177 (n.c.a. Lu-177), a critical medical radioisotope used in the manufacturing of radiopharmaceuticals for treatment of many types of cancer, including neuroendocrine tumors and prostate cancer.

The Centre for Probe Development and Commercialization (CPDC), a global leader in the development, production and commercialization of radiopharmaceuticals, will produce n.c.a. Lu-177 in collaboration with Isotopia Molecular Imaging for distribution in North America.

n.c.a. Lu-177 is used in Targeted Radionuclide Therapy in the field of Precision Oncology.  By binding n.c.a. Lu-177 isotopes to tumor-specific targeting molecules, the resulting radiopharmaceutical targets the tumor and delivers precise cell-killing radiation that spares normal healthy tissue. Isotopia has developed a reliable and unique GMP method to produce a highly pure form of Lu-177.  n.c.a. Lu-177 contains no Mercury (Hg) and no metastable Lu-177m, therefore there is no need for cost intensive clinical waste management.
