Approved Uses

ILLUCCIX® (kit for the preparation of gallium Ga-68 gozetotide, for injection) is a prescription radioactive diagnostic agent that is prepared by a healthcare provider, and, then, injected. It is used with a medical imaging procedure called Positron Emission Tomography (PET) of lesions identified as prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positive. ILLUCCIX is used in men with prostate cancer whose cancer may have spread to other parts of the body and may need initial therapy or whose cancer may have come back, based on elevated serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels. ILLUCCIX is also approved to help your healthcare provider determine whether you are appropriate for a certain treatment that is a PSMA-directed therapy.

Important Safety Information

There is a risk your PET scan image with ILLUCCIX may be misinterpreted. A negative image does not rule out presence of prostate cancer, and a positive image does not confirm presence of prostate cancer. The ILLUCCIX PET scan may be affected by other factors, like the presence of other tissue types, PSMA levels and site of disease. Your healthcare provider will consider other information to confirm prostate cancer and determine treatment.

ILLUCCIX involves exposure to small amounts of radioactivity, and long-term cumulative radiation exposure is associated with increased risk for cancer. Your healthcare provider will use safe handling techniques to minimize radiation exposure.

Important Safety Information

  • There is a risk your PET scan image with ILLUCCIX may be misinterpreted. A negative image does not rule out presence of prostate cancer, and a positive image does not confirm presence of prostate cancer. The ILLUCCIX PET scan may be affected by other factors, like the presence of other tissue types, PSMA levels and site of disease.

  • ILLUCCIX involves exposure to small amounts of radioactivity, and long-term cumulative radiation exposure is associated with increased risk for cancer. Your healthcare provider will use safe handling techniques to minimize radiation exposure.
  • You should drink water to hydrate before the scan and urinate immediately before the procedure and as often as possible during the first hours after the procedure to help reduce radioactivity exposure.
  • The most common side effects of ILLUCCIX in clinical trials were fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, and dizziness. These adverse reactions each typically occurred in ≤1.2% of patients in clinical trials.
