ITM Isotope Technologies Munich SE (ITM), a leading radiopharmaceutical biotech company, supports Advanced Accelerator Applications, a Novartis company, as a long-term supplier for the medical radioisotope component of the newly U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved radiotherapeutic, Pluvicto (lutetium Lu 177 vipivotide tetraxetan) for the treatment of adult patients with prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-positive metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who have been treat

March 28, 2022 — ITM Isotope Technologies Munich SE (ITM), a leading radiopharmaceutical biotech company, supports Advanced Accelerator Applications, a Novartis company, as a long-term supplier for the medical radioisotope component of the newly U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved radiotherapeutic, Pluvicto (lutetium Lu 177 vipivotide tetraxetan) for the treatment of adult patients with prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-positive metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who have been treated with androgen receptor pathway inhibition and taxane-based chemotherapy. ITM will now supply its medical radioisotope n.c.a. 177Lu (EndolucinBeta), a core component of the newly approved radiotherapeutic, for the commercial phase based on a supply agreement entered in 2020, supporting the scalability and security-of-supply for patients worldwide.

“As a long-standing supplier of n.c.a. lutetium-177 for Pluvicto, we share in the excitement of this approval,” commented Steffen Schuster, Chief Executive Officer of ITM. “At ITM, we strive to provide high-quality radioisotopes not only for our own pipeline, but also for our partners in an effort to bring improved precision oncology treatments to patients on the widest scale possible. We congratulate Advanced Accelerator Applications on its notable achievement and are proud to have contributed clinical supply for the development of this new therapeutic.”

ITM has established an industrial scale production of high-quality n.c.a. 177Lu which is intended to be used to damage tumor tissue by emitting a small amount of ionizing beta radiation at short distances thereby minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. ITM’s n.c.a. 177Lu is designed to have an extraordinarily high level of purity which cuts storage and logistic costs otherwise associated with handling contaminated waste and enables its global use in areas adhering to strict radiation protection rules and regulations. ITM holds a U.S. DMF with the FDA for n.c.a. 177Lu and has marketing authorization in the EU (brand name EndolucinBeta).

ITM is a global leader in the production and supply of high-quality medical radioisotopes used as radiopharmaceutical precursors for precise diagnosis and targeted treatment of cancer and has established a wide-reaching international supply network. Furthermore, ITM is developing a proprietary broad pipeline of Targeted Radionuclide Therapies and Diagnostics for various cancer indications which includes its lead candidate, ITM-11 for the treatment of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs), currently being investigated in two phase III clinical trials.
