Treatment Currently Offered
Pluvicto for Metastatic Prostate Cancer
Pluvicto (Lutetium Lu 177 vipivotide tetraxetan) is an outpatient treatment, administered intravenously. It is provided in six cycles of therapy, six weeks apart. Pluvicto concentrates within prostate tumors that express the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), harming or killing the cancer cells with radiation. Candidates for this therapy must undergo a PSMA PET scan that shows that their tumor(s) concentrate the PET agent, which would be an indication that they would also concentrate the corresponding radiotherapeutic. Pluvicto is well-tolerated, with few side effects, can provide relief from pain and may prolong life.

Patients can bring one caregiver; however, the caregiver may not be present during the delivery of the radiopharmaceutical.
