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. There is considerable demand for effective prostate imaging in the United States and we already have several leading cancer hospitals preparing to use the PSMA Kit. We'd also like to acknowledge the excellent work of our colleagues at NukeMed and the team at Indiana University, who worked tirelessly over the past six months to complete the validation work."

The PSMA Kit has been validated for use with all major vendors of 68Ga generators, including Eckert & Ziegler1, ITM2 and IRE ELiT3. The PSMA Kit is expected to be commercially available by mid-2018, subject to FDA review of the manufacturing package. 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
