This one-day event will cover the exciting concept of theranostics. This event will discuss the use of theranostics in the imaging and therapy of primarily oncological conditions. Our renowned international multidisciplinary faculty of expert oncologists, radiopharmacists, radiologists, physicists and nuclear medicine physicians will provide a comprehensive overview of imaging technology and therapies. Attendees will develop their skills in theranostics with talks covering radiological imaging, PET/CT, radionuclide therapy, regulatory requirements and new theranostic tracers. There will also be opportunities for discussions with our expert panel.
We are very grateful to the following organisations for supporting this event.
Bayer’s Radiology business is well placed to be the partner of choice in helping NHS trusts to address the many challenges faced today including the increasing need for governance to demonstrate best practice and improving patient care within increasing financial constraints. With market-leading contrast media and power injector systems, Bayer is able to offer innovative patient care and with the addition of its informatics platform, it can support radiology departments in driving protocol standardisation and easily accessible audit data that enable departments to meet further challenges faced around contrast and radiation dose management. 0118 2063999 www.radiology.bayer.co.uk
Advanced Accelerator Applications (AAA) is an innovative radiopharmaceutical company developing, producing and commercializing molecular nuclear medicine theragnostics. Theragnostics is a strategy that can combine a single targeting compound with different isotopes in order to deliver diagnostic or therapeutic interventions. AAA is at the forefront of developing predictive, preventive and personalized tools and procedures that have the potential to radically transform healthcare. Our path to accomplishing this goal is by merging therapeutic and diagnostic approaches to advance early detection, treatment, and monitoring of diseases. AAA is developing a pipeline of theragnostic pairings for oncology indications. Specifically, the company’s theragnostic platform involves radiolabeling a targeting molecule – initially the somatostatin analogue, dotatate (oxodotereotide) – with either gallium Ga 68 for diagnostic use, or lutetium Lu 177 for therapy. Products based on this first theragnostic pairing include the diagnostics NETSPOT® (gallium Ga 68 dotatate) in the US and SomaKit TOC® (gallium (Ga 68) edotreotride) in Europe, and the therapeutic, Lutathera® (USAN: lutetium Lu 177 dotatate/INN: lutetium (177Lu) oxodotreotide), which is approved for use in Europe and the United States. Additional pairings in development target Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST), and prostate and breast cancer. AAA is a leader in the production and commercialization of molecular nuclear diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT). The Company currently markets 9 diagnostic products (8 in Europe and 1 in the US), mainly used in clinical oncology, cardiology, neurology and infectious/inflammatory diseases. AAA is a Novartis company.
