What is theranostics? It is a new field of medicine which combines specific targeted therapies based on targeted diagnostic tests. With a key focus on patient-centred care, theranostics provides a transition from conventional medicine to a contemporary, personalised and precise medical approach. It allows for effective diagnosis, drug delivery, and treatment response monitoring.
Lutetium-177 Octreotate therapy is designed to damage and kill the cancer cells in neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). Most of the Lutetium-177 Octreotate travels to the tumour locations where it targets the unhealthy cells in the neuroendocrine system, reducing the size of tumours and preventing them from multiplying; any damage to healthy tissue is kept to a minimum.
Lutetium-177 PSMA therapy uses a molecule which attaches itself to the PSMA receptors on the cancer cells. PSMA is a type of protein found on the surface of cells, and naturally in the prostate gland. Before therapy is administered, the PSMA molecule is bound with Lutetium-177, which emits beta radiation, a type of radiation that damages cancer cells when it is in close proximity. Over time, it destroys the prostate cancer cells.
