177Lu-PSMA RLT and SBRT combined
The challenge of the radiation therapy in cancer treatment lies in achieving an optimal radiation level within tumours and metastases, effectively eradicating cancer cells while minimizing harm to surrounding healthy tissues. The combination of Stereotactic Body RadioTherapy (SBRT) and internal radioligand therapy (RLT) with 177Lu-PSMA appears to be precisely the way to maximize the treatment of oligometastatic prostate cancer.
A recent study demonstrated a remarkable increase in the median biologically effective dose (BED) to 159 Gy with the combined 177Lu-PSMA RLT and SBRT. Importantly, this was achieved without significant side effects, whereas standalone external radiation typically falls short of reaching 70Gy. SBRT, strategically applied post-RLT, precisely targets any remaining PSMA-positive metastases, as verified by a control PSMA PET/CT after RLT.
In collaboration with our partners specializing in Cyberknife, SBRT and proton/C-Ion-therapy, our clinic offers these advanced therapies in a coordinated approach. We are committed to providing our patients with the cutting-edge oncological treatment, ensuring the highest standards of care and precision in their fight against cancer.
