Lantheus and POINT Biopharma Announce FDA Grants Fast Track Designation for ¹⁷⁷Lu-PNT2002 for the Treatment of Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer
“Fast track designation by the FDA is an important milestone and recognizes the potential for 177Lu-PNT2002 to address the significant unmet need for mCRPC patients,” said
“The FDA Fast Track designation for 177Lu-PNT2002 underscores its potential to address a serious unmet need and serve as a meaningful therapeutic option for patients with mCRPC,” said Dr.
The Phase 3 SPLASH trial is a multi-center, randomized, open label assessment of 177Lu-PNT2002 in participants with PSMA-expressing mCRPC who have progressed on androgen receptor pathway inhibitor therapy and refuse, or are not eligible for, chemotherapy. Participants were randomized 2:1 with those in arm A receiving 177Lu-PNT2002 and those in arm B receiving either abiraterone or enzalutamide. Participants in arm B who experience centrally assessed radiographic progression and meet protocol eligibility have the option to crossover and receive 177Lu-PNT2002. Patients are subject to follow-up for up to 5 years from their first 177Lu-PNT2002 dose. The primary endpoint of the study is radiographic progression-free survival. Key secondary endpoints include overall survival, overall response rate, and duration of response. Safety and tolerability will also be assessed. Enrollment in the trial is complete and SPLASH top line data is expected in the second half of 2023. More information about the trial is accessible at www.ClinicalTrials.gov, identifier NCT04647526.
