What is 177Lu-PSMA Therapy?
177Lu-PSMA Therapy is a targeted therapy that uses the high energy radioactive element of 177Lu (Lutetium) that is bound to a molecule called PSMA (prostate specific membrane antigen). Once it is injected into the body, The 177Lu-PSMA attaches itself to PSMA receptors that appear on prostate cancer cells. The Lutetium produces high energy particles that damages the prostate cells.
