MELBOURNE, Australia and INDIANAPOLIS, March 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telix Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX.TLX) ("Telix Group", "Company"), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of diagnostic and therapeutic products based on targeted radiopharmaceuticals or "molecularly-targeted radiation" (MTR), has today announced the submission of a Drug Master File (DMF) for a sterile kit used in the preparation of 68Ga-PSMA-11 (PSMA Kit), to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA DMF ID: 032631).

Dr. Bernard Lambert, President of Telix USA noted, "The filing of this DMF marks an important step toward offering a commercial PSMA prostate imaging solution for the US market, and we are the first to have achieved this accomplishment in collaboration with our partner, ANMI.

The DMF is held by Kyzeo Imaging LLC (Kyzeo), a joint-venture company between Telix Pharmaceuticals (US) Inc. and ANMI SA.

About the US Prostate Cancer Imaging Market

Prostate cancer has emerged as a major cancer killer in the United States, with approximately 160,000 new cases annually and three million men living with prostate cancer.4 There remains a significant unmet need to better diagnose and stage men with prostate cancer, from initial diagnosis all the way to therapeutic monitoring in patients with late-stage metastatic disease. The prostate imaging market in the US is estimated to be a $500m market opportunity, likely to be dominated by the use of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and imaging agents targeting prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) in particular.5
