Eckert & Ziegler Submits Drug Master File for Lu-177 n.c.a.
Eckert & Ziegler (ISIN DE0005659700, SDAX) has successfully submitted a Type II Drug Master File (DMF) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for lutetium (177Lu) chloride solution (containing no-carrier-added radioisotope Lutetium-177), an active pharmaceutical ingredient and received DMF registration number 038043.
Drug manufacturers can now refer to this DMF when developing new radiopharmaceuticals for the U.S. market and use the lutetium (177Lu) chloride solution in clinical trials of drugs, for example. A large number of tumor-specific drugs can be labeled with the beta emitter lutetium-177, which brings the radiating effect of the isotope directly to the tumor cell.
"We are excited about the access to the U.S. market for lutetium-177 based radiotherapeutics," explains Dr. Lutz Helmke, member of the Executive Board and responsible for the Medical segment at Eckert & Ziegler. "Thanks to our joint venture with Atom Mines LLC, we have excellent access to the scarce and indispensable precursor ytterbium-176 and thus the possibility to supply no-carrier-added lutetium-177 in highest purity and reliably to pharmaceutical customers worldwide."
Radionuclide therapy with lutetium-177, is becoming well established as a valuable treatment option within precision oncology for various indications. Eckert & Ziegler is one of the leading partners for the radiopharmaceutical industry, offering complete early development services in addition to the supply of isotopes, including process development and scale-up, CMC development, manufacturing and packaging, product release and stability programs.
