DraxImage gets clearance for palladium version of BrachySeed

Radiopharmaceutical firm DraxImage has received Food and Drug Administration clearance for a palladium-103 version of its BrachySeed therapy implant. BrachySeed Pd-103 is indicated for the treatment of prostate cancer and other localized tumors, such as in the head, neck, lung, pancreas, breast, and uterus, according to the Mississauga, ON-based company.

DraxImage launched BrachySeed I-125 in Canada and the U.S. this year. Following approval by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, BrachySeed Pd-103 will become commercially available later this year, according to the company. The implant will be distributed in the U.S. by Cytogen, which also markets BrachySeed I-125 and the ProstaScint prostate cancer imaging agent.
