177-Lutetium-PSMA Before Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for the Treatment of Oligorecurrent Prostate Cancer, The LUNAR Study


Brief Summary

This phase II trial tests whether 177-Lutetium-PSMA given before stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) works to improve cancer control rate in patients with 1-5 prostate cancer tumors that have come back after prior treatment (oligorecurrent). Radioactive drugs, such as 177-Lutetium-PSMA, may carry radiation directly to tumor cells and not harm normal cells. SBRT uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method may kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue. Giving 177-Lutetium-PSMA before SBRT may make the SBRT more effective.
