Happy Saturday, Zebra family! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
As many may already know, because this is a week and a half later than I would’ve liked (Yay for being a new blog and having so much content to get up this week!), on March 23rd, 2016, there was some breaking news concerning PRRT here in the USA:
“AAA Opens Lutathera Expanded Access Program In U.S. to Eligible Patients And Announces Forthcoming NDA Filing to FDA and EMA
AAA today announced that the company has initiated an expanded access program (EAP) in the United States for the investigational product, Lutathera. Through the program, Lutathera is being made available for patients suffering from inoperable, somatostatin receptor positive, midgut carcinoid tumors, progressive under somatostatin analogue therapy.
