Clovis, Isotopia Ink Clinical Supply Pact For Lutetium-177 Used In Its Targeted Cancer Radiation Therapy
  • Clovis Oncology Inc CLVS and Isotopia Molecular Imaging Ltd signed a clinical supply agreement that provides Clovis Oncology with Isotopia's lutetium-177 (177Lu) n.c.a. for use in the clinical development of FAP-2286, Clovis' fibroblast activation protein (FAP)-targeting therapeutic candidate. 
  • FAP-2286 is currently being investigated in the Phase 1/2 LuMIERE study for patients with advanced solid tumors. 
  • The agreement covers an initial period of two years. Further details of the agreement were not disclosed.
  • 177Lu is a beta-emitting radiopharmaceutical precursor with a half-life of 6.7 days. It is used in precision oncology for targeted radionuclide therapy. It can deliver therapeutically-beneficial radiation precisely to a tumor when bound to disease-specific targeting therapeutics.
  •  Isotopia's 177Lu contains no metastable 177Lum, eliminating cost-intensive clinical waste management.
  • In June, the first presentation of initial data from the Phase 1/2 LuMIERE study of FAP-2286 demonstrated a manageable safety profile and encouraging evidence of activity.
  • The company plans to present a further interim data update during the EANM Congress in October 2022. 
  • Price Action: CLVS shares are up 5.36% at $1.17 on the last check Wednesday.
