Lutetium-177 PSMA Therapy 6 mon
PSMA is a radioactive isotope used in targeted prostate cancer therapy. It targets the prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA), which is found on the surface of certain cells in the prostate, including cancerous ones. The lutetium-177 PSMA treatment can be injected into your body, where it attaches itself to this antigen and is absorbed by nearby tissues. This process helps destroy cancer cells without harming surrounding healthy tissue.
Lutetium-177 PSMA therapy is a method of treatment whereby a radioactive isotope called lutetium-177 (Lu-177) is injected into the body to specifically target prostate cancer cells in patients with metastatic, hormone-refractory prostate cancer https://bookinghealth.com/clinics/all
Lutetium-177 PSMA therapy is part of a group of therapies that are known as targeted alpha therapy. This type of treatment uses alpha particle emitting radionuclides like Lu-177 to kill and destroy cancer cells while leaving healthy tissues unharmed or minimally affected by radiation.
