INITIAL STAGING

Efficacy of diagnostic performance confirmed through histopathology comparison1

BIOCHEMICAL RECURRENCE

High rate of detection confirmed even at PSA levels lower than 2 ng/mL1

VARIOUS REGIONS

Demonstrated detection including bone, prostate bed, pelvic lymph node, and extrapelvic soft tissue1

National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Guidelines and Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) appropriate use criteria recommendations include 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT or PET/MRI across different stages of prostate cancer2,3,b

a68Ga-PSMA-11 is also known as gallium Ga 68 gozetotide.

bThese guidelines do not recommend use of a particular radiopharmaceutical.

Initial Staging: PSMA-PreRP Trial

Efficacy established at initial staging1

Illuccix® accuracy demonstrated in a pivotal trial with 68Ga-PSMA-11 by histopathology comparison

The open-label, prostate-specific membrane antigen-preprostatectomy (PSMA-PreRP) study (N=325) compared majority positron emission tomography (PET) reads to pelvis lymph node histopathology results.1

In an exploratory subgroup analysis based on summed Gleason score, there was a numerical trend toward more true positives in patients with a Gleason score of ≥8 compared to those with a Gleason score of ≤7.1

In an exploratory analysis of pelvic nodal metastasis in all patients, including those without histopathology reference standard, and using an imputation method1,c:

  • Imputed sensitivity was 47% (95% CI: 38%-55%)
  • Imputed specificity was 74% (95% CI: 68%-80%)

Biochemical Recurrence: PSMA-BCR-Trial

Efficacy established at biochemical recurrence even at low PSA levels1

Illuccix® provides a high rate of detection across regions as seen in a pivotal trial with 68Ga-PSMA-111

  • Patients with biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy were enrolled in this prospective study (N=635)
  • Of the 210 evaluable patients, 192 patients (91%) were found to be true positive in one or more regions against the composite reference standard (95% CI: 88%-95%)

PET results and percent PET positivity stratified by serum PSA level (n=628)1,f

Detection rates increased with increasing PSA levels.

Guideline

When 68Ga-PSMA-11 is recommended for use

National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN)2,k

To be considered for full body (soft tissue and bone) imaging and equivocal results on initial bone imaging at:

  • Initial staging of unfavorable intermediate,l high or very high-risk prostate cancer
  • Biochemical recurrence (BCR) after initial definitive therapy or progression of N1 disease on androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), or localized on observation
  • Progression of nonmetastatic and metastatic castration-naïve prostate cancer
  • Nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) with increasing PSA or radiographic evidence of metastases

Because of the increased sensitivity and specificity of PSMA-PET tracers for detecting micrometastatic disease compared to conventional imaging (CT, MRI) at both initial staging and BCR, the panel does not feel that conventional imaging is a necessary prerequisite to PSMA-PET and that PSMA-PET/CT or PSMA-PET/MRI can serve as an equally effective, if not more effective front-line imaging tool for these patients.

Important Safety Information

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Risk for Misdiagnosis
Image interpretation errors can occur with gallium Ga 68 gozetotide PET. A negative image does not rule out the presence of prostate cancer and a positive image does not confirm the presence of prostate cancer. The performance of gallium Ga 68 gozetotide for imaging of biochemically recurrent prostate cancer seems to be affected by serum PSA levels and by site of disease. The performance of gallium Ga 68 gozetotide for imaging of metastatic pelvic lymph nodes prior to initial definitive therapy seems to be affected by Gleason score. Gallium Ga 68 gozetotide uptake is not specific for prostate cancer and may occur with other types of cancer as well as non-malignant processes such as Paget’s disease, fibrous dysplasia, and osteophytosis. Clinical correlation, which may include histopathological evaluation of the suspected prostate cancer site, is recommended.

Radiation Risks
Gallium Ga 68 gozetotide contributes to a patient’s overall long-term cumulative radiation exposure. Long-term cumulative radiation exposure is associated with an increased risk for cancer. Ensure safe handling to minimize radiation exposure to the patient and health care workers. Advise patients to hydrate before and after administration and to void frequently after administration.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

The safety of gallium Ga 68 gozetotide was evaluated in 960 patients, each receiving one dose of gallium Ga 68 gozetotide. The average injected activity was 188.7 ± 40.7 MBq (5.1 ± 1.1 mCi). No serious adverse reactions were attributed to gallium Ga 68 gozetotide. The most commonly reported adverse reactions were nausea, diarrhea, and dizziness, occurring at a rate of < 1%.

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Androgen deprivation therapy and other therapies targeting the androgen pathway

Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) and other therapies targeting the androgen pathway, such as androgen receptor antagonists, can result in changes in uptake of gallium Ga 68 gozetotide in prostate cancer. The effect of these therapies on performance of gallium Ga 68 gozetotide PET has not been established.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit MedWatch at www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088. You may also report adverse reactions to Telix by calling 1-844-455-8638 or emailing pharmacovigilance@telixpharma.com.
