  • Dotatate
  • Advanced Accelerator Applications S.A. (AAA) announced in AUG17 that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in the United States, has accepted and considered complete the resubmission of the New Drug Application (NDA) for its investigational drug lutetium Lu 177 dotatate (Lutathera).

  • PRRT
  • Please see the following post for the very latest on PRRT worldwide - CLICK HERE I was extremely disappointed to learn of the decision to remove PRRT (Lutetium or Yttrium) from the Cancer Drugs Fund (CDF) as reported by the NET Patient Foundation. (ronnyallan.net)
  • yttrium
  • Lutetium usually occurs in association with the element yttrium [ citation needed ] and is sometimes used in metal alloys and as a catalyst in various chemical reactions. (rug.nl)
  • radioactive
  • Lutetium-176 is a relatively abundant (2.5%) radioactive isotope with a half-life of about 38 billion years, used to determine the age of minerals and meteorites . (rug.nl)
  • researchers
  • All of these researchers found lutetium as an impurity in the mineral ytterbia , which was previously thought to consist entirely of ytterbium. (rug.nl)
  • cells
  • Paragangliomas are tumours that grow in cells of the 'peripheral' nervous system (i.e. the nerves outside the brain and spinal cord). (ronnyallan.net)
  • types
  • There can be confusion between the two types of tumour as Paragangliomas are often described as extra-adrenal Pheochromocytomas (i.e. a Pheo external to the adrenal gland). (ronnyallan.net)
  • often
  • Lutetium is sometimes considered the first element of the 6th-period transition metals , although lanthanum is more often considered as such. (rug.nl)
  • With Neuroendocrine Cancer, finding the tumours (the bad guys) can often be a challenge - they can be small and/or difficult to find - they are sometimes expert at camouflage. (ronnyallan.net)
  • Pheochromocytomas are often referred to as the "ten percent tumour" because as a rule of thumb they do many things about ten percent of the time. (ronnyallan.net)
  • specific
  • Molecular profiling will also help doctors create targeted therapies for each cancer based on the specific genetic makeup of the tumour. (cancer.ca)
  • different
  • They arise from the central portion of the adrenal gland, which is called the adrenal medulla (the remainder of the gland is known as the cortex which performs a different role and can be associated with a different tumour type). (ronnyallan.net)
  • Many different tumour markers have been characterized and are in clinical use. (ronnyallan.net)
  • rare
  • Lutetium is the last element in the lanthanide series, and it is traditionally counted among the rare earths . (rug.nl)
