Background: In patients with oligometastatic recurrent prostate cancer, standard treatment is androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). However, ADT has many potential side effects that may result in impaired quality of life. Early identification to select patients suitable for stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is of utmost importance to prevent or delay start of ADT and its side effects.
Because Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen-11- Positron Emission Tomography (PSMA-11-PET) has a higher sensitivity than choline-PET, we hypothesise that PSMA-11-PET based SABR results in longer response duration and subsequent longer delay in starting ADT than choline-PET.
Patients with oligometastatic (≤4 metastases) recurrent prostate cancer (with no local recurrence) based on PSMA-11-PET or choline-PET treated with SABR from January 2012 until December 2017 were included. Primary endpoint was ADT-free survival. Secondary endpoints were Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) response after SABR and time to PSA rise after SABR.
Results: Fifty patients (n = 40 PSMA-11-PET and n = 10 choline-PET) with in total 72 lesions were included. Median follow-up was 24.3 months. PSMA-11-PET enabled eligibility of patients with lower PSA levels than choline-PET (median 1.8 versus 4.2 ng/mL, p = 0.03). The PSMA-11-PET group had a significant longer PSA response duration (median 34.0 months (95% confidence interval (CI), 16.0–52.0) versus 14.7 months (95% CI 4.7–24.7), p = 0.004) with a subsequent longer ADT-free survival (median 32.7 months (95% CI, 20.8–44.5) versus 14.9 months (95% CI, 5.7–24.1), p = 0.01).
With PSMA-11-PET we are able to select patients with oligometastatic recurrent prostate cancer suitable for SABR in an earlier disease stage at lower PSA levels. PSMA-11-PET guided SABR resulted in a significant longer response duration and ADT-free survival compared with choline-PET and can therefore prevent or delay ADT related side effects.

Targeted radiotherapy is an evolving and promising modality of cancer treatment. The killing of cancer cells is achieved with the use of biological vectors and appropriate radionuclides. Among the many advantages of this approach are its selectiveness in delivering the radiation to the target, relatively less severe and infrequent side effects, and the possibility of assessing the uptake by the tumor prior to the therapy. Several different radiopharmaceuticals are currently being used by various administration routes and targeting mechanisms. This article aims to briefly review the current status of targeted radiotherapy as well as to outline the advantages and disadvantages of radionuclides used for this purpose.(more…)

Abetavu is an organization that started as an orphanage, founded by a Vancouver woman, Carli Travers, and her Ugandan husband Robert, nearly ten years ago. It is now so much more than an orphanage. Abetavu provides a safe haven to children that need support, and it provides essential services to the local community, in terms of counseling, education, sports, and many other services.

Y-90 radioembolization for HCC patients with PVT appears to have an acceptable safety profile, with better survival in CP-A patients than in CP-B patients. This study confirms prior reports of survival in PVT patients treated with Y-90 radioembolization, and survival after Y-90 radioembolization appears to exceed that in
similar patients treated with systemic therapies. Despite the negative studies recently reported, Y-90 radioembolization is a reasonable treatment option in properly selected PVT patients. Further controlled studies are needed to compare it with systemic therapies or other locoregional treatments for advanced-stage HCC.

A positive response for surrogate parameters demonstrates remarkable antitumor activity for 225Ac-PSMA-617. Swimmer-plot analysis indicates a promising duration of tumor control, especially considering the unfavorable prognostic profile of the selected advanced-stage patients. Xerostomia was the main reason patients discontinued therapy or refused additional administrations and was in the same dimension as nonresponse; this finding indicates that further modifications of the treatment regimen with regard to side effects might be necessary to further enhance the therapeutic range.
