ST. LOUIS, MO, USA I April 23, 2024 I Curium, a world leader in nuclear medicine, announced today that it has successfully enrolled and scanned patients in its SOLAR clinical trials:

  • The first trial is SOLAR-STAGE: a Phase 3, multicenter, open-label study to evaluate the diagnostic performance of copper Cu 64 PSMA I&T PET/CT in staging of men with newly diagnosed unfavorable intermediate-risk, high-risk or very-high-risk prostate cancer electing to undergo radical prostatectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection.
  • The second study, SOLAR-RECUR: a Phase 3, multicenter, open-label study to evaluate the diagnostic performance of copper Cu 64 PSMA I&T PET/CT in men with suspected biochemical recurrence of prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy or radiation therapy.

These clinical trials are currently enrolling patients at sites across the U.S. and will be opening clinical trial sites in Europe later this year.

Sakir Mutevelic, MD, Curium’s Chief Medical Officer said: “The successful start of patient enrollment is a significant step forward for Curium’s Phase 3 SOLAR-STAGE and SOLAR-RECUR clinical trials. As we continue Curium’s journey to redefine the experience of cancer through our trusted legacy in nuclear medicine, we look forward to building on our well-established and successful 64-Cu diagnostic imaging platform.”

Amy Bartalotta, Vice President of Clinical Operations added: “To ensure that the SOLAR clinical trials recruit a diverse set of patients – including minority groups that are often more affected by and less likely to be screened for prostate cancer – we have 50 sites in the U.S. and over 30 sites in Europe participating in these trials. We are pleased to announce the first patients enrolled and scanned were at XCancer® under the direction of Dr. Luke Nordquist. We look forward to additional trial sites scanning patients across the U.S. and Europe in the coming months.”
