ARTMS and Telix Pharmaceuticals Announce Successful Production of 68Ga PSMA-11 with Cyclotron Produced 68Ga from a Solid Target

Burnaby, Canada and Indianapolis, USA, January 12, 2021 – ARTMS Inc. and Telix announce successful production of Telix’s prostate cancer imaging product using multi-Curie quantities of cyclotron-produced Gallium-68 via ARTMS’ proprietary Quantum Irradiation System (QIS®) solid target system.  

Telix is pleased to announce the successful preparation of its prostate cancer imaging investigational product, TLX591-CDx (using a specially formulated high activity kit for the preparation of 68Ga-PSMA-11), using multi-Curie quantities of cyclotron-produced Gallium-68 (68Ga) via ARTMS’ proprietary Quantum Irradiation System (QIS®) solid target system.

The testing demonstrated an impressive six-hour stability of TLX591-CDx, a radiopharmaceutical targeting Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA) for the imaging of prostate cancer using Positron Emission Tomography (PET). Testing met all relevant specifications for both low- (50 mCi and 100 mCi) and mid-level output (over 2,500 mCi) 68Ga production runs. The “cold kit” format of TLX591-CDx enables rapid radiolabelling at room temperature with high radiochemical purity and production consistency, ideally suited for the radiopharmacy setting.

ARTMS Chief Executive Officer, Charles S. Conroy, stated, “This collaboration and successful testing represents a significant step forward for the diagnosis of prostate cancer globally. The combination of Telix’s user friendly, high quality PSMA-11 kit along with robust production of  68Ga using our solid targetry approach moves us closer to having a PET diagnostic agent on demand for clinicians. Our goal at ARTMS is to ensure that the  68Ga supply is able to meet the substantial projected clinical demand for this isotope.”

Telix USA President, Dr Bernard Lambert, added, “When the Telix-ARTMS collaboration was announced in April 2020, we were confident that ARTMS’ proprietary technology to produce 68Ga from specialized solid 68Zn targets using low-energy cyclotrons would be valuable to the Molecular Imaging and Oncology community. ARTMS’ work represents a significant development in how 68Ga is able to be supplied to the market for large-scale production and, as a result, will contribute to the reliability of access to all men living with prostate cancer who require advanced prostate imaging. This outcome is a testament to both the ARTMS technology and Telix’s proprietary formulation of PSMA-11 kit
