Blue Earth Diagnostics Highlights Presentations on Investigational rhPSMA Radiopharmaceuticals and 18F-Fluciclovine at Upcoming Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) Annual Meeting

BURLINGTON, Mass. & OXFORD, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blue Earth Diagnostics, a Bracco company and recognized leader in the development and commercialization of innovative PET radiopharmaceuticals, today announced upcoming presentations at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) Annual Meeting, to be held June 11 – 14, 2022 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.


Presentations on investigational radiohybrid Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen (rhPSMA) compounds are being made at the conference. They include additional results from the Company’s Phase 3 SPOTLIGHT study (NCT04186845) evaluating the safety and diagnostic performance of 18F-rhPSMA-7.3 PET imaging in men with suspected prostate cancer recurrence based on elevated PSA following prior therapy, and preclinical evaluation of 177Lu-rhPSMA-10.1, being investigated by Blue Earth Therapeutics as a therapeutic radiopharmaceutical candidate for prostate cancer. Presentations on investigational studies of 18F-fluciclovine include an interim report from an exploratory trial in lobular breast cancer, distinguishing pseudoprogression from tumor recurrence in glioblastoma, and amino acid transport mechanisms and staging in muscle invasive bladder cancer. Details of selected oral and poster presentations by Blue Earth Diagnostics and its collaborators are listed below.

NOTE: Currently, rhPSMA compounds are investigational and have not received regulatory approval.

18F-fluciclovine is an approved molecular imaging radiopharmaceutical for use in PET imaging in men with suspected prostate cancer recurrence based on elevated blood prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels following prior treatment. Presentations noted by “*” discuss results of investigational studies of an approved product that is not approved by the FDA for the specific use or purpose noted.

Indication and Important Safety Information About Axumin

INDICATION

Axumin® (fluciclovine F 18) injection is indicated for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging in men with suspected prostate cancer recurrence based on elevated blood prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels following prior treatment.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

  • Image interpretation errors can occur with Axumin PET imaging. A negative image does not rule out recurrent prostate cancer and a positive image does not confirm its presence. The performance of Axumin seems to be affected by PSA levels. Axumin uptake may occur with other cancers and benign prostatic hypertrophy in primary prostate cancer. Clinical correlation, which may include histopathological evaluation, is recommended.
  • Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, may occur in patients who receive Axumin. Emergency resuscitation equipment and personnel should be immediately available.
  • Axumin use contributes to a patient’s overall long-term cumulative radiation exposure, which is associated with an increased risk of cancer. Safe handling practices should be used to minimize radiation exposure to the patient and health care providers.
  • Adverse reactions were reported in ≤ 1% of subjects during clinical studies with Axumin. The most common adverse reactions were injection site pain, injection site erythema and dysgeusia.

To report suspected adverse reactions to Axumin, call 1-855-AXUMIN1 (1-855-298-6461) or contact FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.

Full Axumin prescribing information is available at https://www.axumin.com/prescribing-information.pdf.
