MELBOURNE, Australia, June 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Telix Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX: TLX, Telix, the Company)┬átoday announces presentations from the Company’s investigational prostate (prostate specific-membrane antigen, or PSMA-targeting) and renal (carbonic anhydrase IX, or CAIX-targeting) diagnostic and therapeutic programs at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) 2023 Annual Meeting being held in Chicago from June 24 ÔÇô 27.

Further data from Telix’s completed pivotal Phase III ZIRCON study of TLX250-CDx (89Zr-DFO-girentuximab) in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03849118) will be delivered by Jeremie Calais, MD in an oral presentation.┬á

In addition, Andrew M. Scott, MD will present a preclinical evaluation of Telix’s CAIX-targeting radionuclide therapy candidate TLX250 (177Lu-DOTA-girentuximab) in combination with a Merck KGaA DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) inhibitor candidate, peposertib.

SNMMI 2023 will also feature presentations on Telix’s lutetium-based, antibody-directed prostate cancer therapy program, ProstACT, and the Company’s FDA-approved, gallium-based prostate cancer imaging agent, Illuccix┬«, where PSMA imaging with positron emission tomography (PSMA-PET) continues to be a focus for the nuclear medicine and molecular imaging community.

Telix Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Colin Hayward said, “It is fantastic to have such broad representation at this year’s SNMMI annual meeting, the premier educational, scientific, research, and networking event in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging worldwide. Alongside further data from the highly successful Phase III ZIRCON study in kidney cancer imaging, we are excited to present latest updates from our ProstACT SELECT and TARGET studies as this program builds momentum into the ProstACT GLOBAL study.

“Preclinical data from a study of Telix’s CAIX-targeting therapy candidate TLX250 with an investigational DNA damage response inhibitor will also be presented as this combination prepares to move into the clinic. And last ÔÇô but by no means least ÔÇô our approved prostate cancer imaging agent, Illuccix, will feature on the program as part of lifecycle management.
