ECLIPSE – A randomized phase 3 trial for 177-Lu-PSMA-I&T in patients with mCRPC
A new therapy, 177-Lu-PSMA-I&T, is being investigated for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) within the ECLIPSE clinical trial. The investigational therapy targets PSMA (prostate-specific membrane antigen), a biomarker expressed in 95% of prostate cancer cells. Upon binding to the PSMA receptor, the medication is internalised within the cancer cell. The radioactive medication emits DNA-breaking radiation, leading to targeted cell death. It is hoped that the therapy will provide better treatment for patients with mCRPC when compared with standard-of-care hormone therapy.
