dotatate / INN: lutetium (177Lu) oxodotreotide (Lutathera®)
Lu 177 dotatate/INN: lutetium (177Lu) oxodotreotide (Lutathera®) is an investigational 177Lu-labeled
somatostatin analog peptide. USAN: lutetium Lu 177 dotatate/INN: lutetium (177Lu) oxodotreotide (Lutathera®)
belongs to an emerging form of treatments called Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT), which involves targeting tumors
with radiolabeled molecules that bind to specific receptors expressed by the tumor. The European Commission approved the marketing
authorization of USAN: lutetium Lu 177 dotatate/INN: lutetium (177Lu) oxodotreotide (Lutathera®) for
the treatment of unresectable or metastatic, progressive, well differentiated (G1 and G2), somatostatin receptor positive GEP-NETs
in adults. An NDA submission to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
for lutetium Lu 177 dotatate (Lutathera®) is under review. The Prescription
Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) action date is January 26, 2018. This novel compound has received orphan drug designation from
