Understanding Physiological PSMA Biodistribution - Jeremie Calais

Details
In this educational initiative, focusing on the knowledge of PSMA PET and PSMA theranostics, Jeremie Calais presents on understanding the physiological PSMA biodistribution and the pathological uptake of the use of PSMA for prostate cancer. Independent Medical Education Initiative Supported by Novartis/Adacap and Point Biopharma Biographies: Jeremie Calais, MD, MSc, Director, Clinical Research Pro...

Practical Application of 18F-DCFPyL-PET/CT in Patients with Biochemically Recurrent Prostate Cancer: The CONDOR Study - Michael Morris

Details
The CONDOR trial was one of two studies that supported the United States Federal Drug Administration (FDA) submission and subsequent approval of DCFPyL, an 18F radiolabeled PSMA directed PET tracer. The CONDOR trial focused specifically on the rising, the biochemically relapsed patient population, those who had surgery or radiation as their definitive primary therapy, biochemically relapsed, and t...

18F-DCFPyL PET/CT Imaging in Patients with Suspected Recurrence of Prostate Cancer (CONDOR) Journal Club - Christopher Wallis & Zachary Klaassen

Details
In this UroToday Journal Club, Christopher Wallis and Zachary Klaassen discuss the Clinical Cancer Research publication on the results from the CONDOR Phase 3, multicenter study. In particular, conventional imaging performs poorly when PSA levels are low, less than 2 ng/mL, and the use of novel PET radiotracers may address this issue and provide more sensitive imaging. CONDOR was a prospective stu...

PYLARIFY®, F 18-labeled PSMA Targeted PET Gains US FDA Approval - Michael Morris

Details
Michael Morris, MD joins Charles Ryan, MD in a discussion on the United States (US) FDA Approval of PYLARIFY®, an F 18-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) targeted positron emission tomography (PET) imaging agent. The F 18 tracer went through two qualifying clinical trials the CONDOR trial and then OSPREY trial. This is the first time a national commercial approval will render PSMA i...

The Impact on Patient Care and Clinical Outcomes Gallium 68 PSMA-11 in Suspected Prostate Cancer Metastasis - Jeremie Calais

Details
On December 1, 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration approved Gallium 68 PSMA-11 (Ga 68 PSMA-11) for use for patients with suspected prostate cancer metastasis in UCLA and UCSF. It is the first drug for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positive lesions in men with prostate cancer. In a follow-up conversation after speaking about the approv...

68Ga-PSMA-11 PET approved in Biochemical Recurrent Prostate Cancer - Jeremie Calais

Details
Jeremie Calais, MD, MSc, joins Phillip Koo, MD, FACS, to discuss the approval of Gallium 68 PSMA-11, the first agent for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positive lesions in men with prostate cancer. The safety and efficacy of Ga 68 PSMA-11 were evaluated in two prospective clinical trials, which lead to the United States Federal Drug Administ...

68Ga-PSMA-11 Joins FDA-Approved Tools for Management of Prostate Cancer - Thomas Hope

Details
68 Ga-PSMA-11, the first drug for PET imaging of prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)–positive lesions in men with prostate cancer (PC), was FDA approved on December 1, 2020. The approval was granted to the University of California–San Francisco (UCSF) and UC–Los Angeles (UCLA). 68 Ga-PSMA-11 is indicated for suspected metastatic disease at the time of initial staging prior to definitive ther...

Changing the Standard of Care in Prostate Cancer with Advances in Nuclear Medicine, PET and Theranostics Symposium - Rob Flavell

Details
Prostate Cancer Outreach Webinar - Hosted by The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI)'s Prostate Cancer Working Group, and faculty from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Molecular imaging and radionuclide therapies play an important role in the management of patients with prostate cancer. Recent advances are allowing for increased precision in both diagnosis a...

CONDOR: Study of 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT Imaging in Patients with Suspected Recurrence of Prostate Cancer - Michael J. Morris

Details
Michael Morris, Oliver Sartor, and Alicia Morgans discuss the CONDOR study, the second of two prospective clinical trials designed in collaboration with the FDA to demonstrate the diagnostic performance of PyL in patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer. Correct localization rate (CLR), or the positive predictive value of the PyL scan, was established as the primary endpoint and the C...

PSMA PET/CT Imaging for Staging High-risk Prostate Cancer Prior to Curative-intent Surgery or Radiotherapy (proPSMA) - Michael Hofman and Declan Murphy

Details
Declan Murphy and Michael Hofman join Alicia Morgans to discuss the results from proPSMA study "A prospective randomized multi-center study of the impact of Ga-68 PSMA-PET/CT imaging for staging high-risk prostate cancer prior to curative-intent surgery or radiotherapy." Conventional imaging using CT and bone scan has insufficient sensitivity when staging men with high-risk localized prostate canc...
