Radium-223 dichloride (223Ra) is an alpha-particle-emitter radiopharmaceutical, approved for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients with symptomatic bone metastases and no visceral involvement. Its administration is based on a schedule of intravenous injection (55kBq/kg) every four weeks for up to six cycles. Because the biological effectiveness of 223Ra-therapy is dose-dependent, the main goal is to complete the entire treatment to achieve a better patient outcome. This study aims to identify potential pre-treatment variables that could impact on 223Ra-treatment completion and then be used to improve the clinical and supportive management of mCRPC patients.

Abstract

Radium-223 dichloride (223Ra) is an alpha-particle-emitter radiopharmaceutical, approved for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients with symptomatic bone metastases and no visceral involvement. Its administration is based on a schedule of intravenous injection (55kBq/kg) every four weeks for up to six cycles. Because the biological effectiveness of 223Ra-therapy is dose-dependent, the main goal is to complete the entire treatment to achieve a better patient outcome. This study aims to identify potential pre-treatment variables that could impact on 223Ra-treatment completion and then be used to improve the clinical and supportive management of mCRPC patients.
