What is Lutetium PSMA Therapy ?

PSMA (Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen) treatment with lutetium-177 is a type of radionuclide therapy used to kill prostate cancer cells that have migrated to other regions of the body, such as lymph nodes and bones. The eradication of prostate cancer cells may extend life expectancy and ease symptoms such as bone discomfort, which are commonly associated with cancer deposits in the skeleton.

Lutetium-177 is a radionuclide that produces harmful radiation that destroys neighboring cells. It's coupled with a protein called PSMA, which looks for PSMA receptors on the majority of prostate cancer cell surfaces. Once administered into a patient's bloodstream, Lutetium-177 PSMA will seek out and connect to PSMA receptors on prostate cancer cells. Prostate cancer cells will die over time as a result of the damaging radiation from Lutetium-177.

Lutetium PSMA therapy slows cancer cell proliferation, shrinks tumors, and, most importantly, improves patients' quality of life by lowering cancer-related discomfort.

When is Lutetium PSMA Therapy required ?

Currently, Lutetium-177 PSMA is used in patients with metastatic prostate cancer who have failed other forms of treatment such as hormone therapy or chemotherapy. Before commencing treatment, patients will need to undergo a PSMA PET-CT scan to confirm PSMA receptors on the cancer cells, which will be targeted by Lutetium-177 PSMA.

How is Lutetium PSMA Therapy done?

Lutetium-177 PSMA is administered by injection into the bloodstream every 6-8 weeks. An intravenous line is established on the day of therapy, and the Lutetium-177 PSMA is infused over 30 minutes.

Antiemetics and a diuretic (to promote urine clearance) are also given at the same time. After 24-72 hours, a SPECT scan is performed to check that disease areas have been effectively targeted. The majority of individuals require four therapy cycles.

A repeat PSMA PET-CT is conducted after two cycles to assess therapy response. If the PSA levels have lowered and a repeat PSMA scan shows a good response, further two cycles will be given to complete the full treatment course of four cycles.

What Results Can I Expect from Lutetium PSMA Therapy?

Around 60-70 percent of patients who receive the treatment will have a positive reaction (e.g., symptom relief), and in some cases, it may result in a reasonably long-term illness remission. It is also possible to extend one's life expectancy.

Patient Testimonials

  • Cancer is daunting. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised to travel immediately to India for the treatment. Found IndiCure online and traveled within 10 days. We were well received by Team IndiCure and got immediate treatment. I am very much humbled with the kindness of the doctors- each time we met they cleared all our doubts and were very helpful.

    After undergoing 6 cycles of chemotherapy and surgery, I am cancer free now and ready to travel back to my country.

    Thank you so much IndiCure for all the help.


    Treatment: Breast cancer

  • After undergoing my cancer treatment in India, I have developed deep respect for Indian doctors and Indian healthcare services. The doctors are prompt in their actions and extremely helpful. I underwent extensive investigations including PET scan and other tests and as soon as they knew my exact condition, they made a comprehensive treatment plan and immediately started my treatment. The hospital staff was also very kind and co-operative.

    Though it was a long journey, it was definitely a fruitful one. Thanks, IndiCure.

    Treatment: Multiple Myeloma

  • I am highly indebted to the whole IndiCure team and Dr. Singh specifically for saving my life. The doctors in my home country Ghana had clearly stated that if I do not get operated for a brain tumor at the earliest, I would not live more than a month. But the promptness with which IndiCure team arranged things for me was something extraordinary. I am extremely satisfied with the whole experience and completely relieved of all my symptoms. Thanks a lot!

    Treatment: Brain tumor

  • Thank you IndiCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in setting up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare teams. Your professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I've never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated on my Dad and we are so grateful for that. I would like to say a special thank you to Mr. Bachir, whom my dad now calls a friend. Mr. Bachir went above and beyond his job responsibilities and responded to the present every time my father needed him. I will recommend your services to friends and family every time I get the opportunity to do so. No amount of words can express my gratitude, so on behalf of my family, we would like to THANK YOU. Sincerely, a father's daughter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Lutetium-177 is a radioactive material that emits beta radiation, which is a type of radiation that is harmful to living things. Lutetium-177 is attached to a short peptide that binds to the PSMA receptor on the surface of cancer cells. When the Lutetium 177 - PSMA complex is coupled to a prostate cancer cell, it produces lethal radiation, causing the cancer cell to die. The surrounding normal cells are spared due to the low penetration of the released beta particle.

Lu177 PSMA is injected into the vein. The patient is admitted to the hospital and will be there for the next 24 hours. Prior to the Lu177 PSMA injection, a MAG3/EC scan is performed to assess kidney function.

Intravenous fluids are normally given to the patient before and after the Lu177 PSMA is given throughout a 24-hour period.

PSMA Lu177 is well tolerated. A little dry mouth, tiredness, and nausea are the most prevalent adverse effects. About 2-3 weeks following the Lu177 PSMA delivery, there may be a modest drop in white blood cells and platelets. These side effects are usually mild and transitory, and they go away on their own without any active therapy. Serious or life-threatening consequences are relatively uncommon.

Lu177 PSMA response rates are determined by the tumor biology of prostate cancer, the initial Gleason Score, the degree of illness, and prior therapy responses. Lu177 PSMA therapy typically results in a drop in S. PSA and a shrinking of tumors in more than 70% of patients. By the second dosage of therapy, nearly all patients have experienced a reduction in pain and an improvement in overall health.

Lu PSMA Therapy is a particularly precise therapy that is used to treat metastatic prostate cancer or when other methods of treatment are no longer effective. Patients with advanced castration-resistant metastatic prostate cancer who have shown indications of tumor progression are candidates for this treatment. The following symptoms may appear as cancer progresses:

  • Rising Serum PSA levels
  • Increase in the size or number of the metastatic lesions on CT/MRI or Ga68 PSMA scans
  • Increasing pain or other worsening symptoms due to the disease
  • Lu177 PSMA Therapy cannot be given to patients in case of Severe renal insufficiency
  • Severe hematological compromise

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
