An exciting proof-of-concept study of Lutetium-177 PSMA (Lu PSMA) was published in the journal Lancet Oncology. Lu-PSMA has been described as “a disruptive therapy and has the potential to change practice” in the future treatment of men with end-stage prostate cancer.
Lu-PSMA, a nuclear therapy, has been used in Germany for many years under compassionate use basis. This particular study was conducted in Australia. The study results offer hope for men with end-stage prostate cancer who have exhausted all their treatment options.

UC San Francisco researchers have discovered a promising new line of attack against lethal, treatment-resistant prostate cancer. Analysis of hundreds of human prostate tumors revealed that the most aggressive cancers depend on a built-in cellular stress response to put a brake on their own hot-wired physiology. Experiments in mice and with human cells showed that blocking this stress response with an experimental drug—previously shown to enhance cognition and restore memory after brain damage in rodents—causes treatment-resistant cancer cells to self-destruct while leaving normal cells unaffected.
The new study was published online May 2, 2018 in Science Translational Medicine.
