General information about Lutathera

Lutathera is supplied as an injection for intravenous administration. The recommended dose is 7.4 GBq (200 mCi) every 8 weeks for a total of 4 doses.

Lutathera (lutetium Lu 177 dotatate) is a radiolabeled somatostatin analog. Lutetium Lu 177 dotatate binds to somatostatin receptors with highest affinity for subtype 2 receptors (SSRT2). Upon binding to somatostatin receptor expressing cells, including malignant somatostatin receptor-positive tumors, the compound is internalized. The beta emission from Lu 177 induces cellular damage by formation of free radicals in somatostatin receptor-positive cells and in neighboring cells.
