Before and after photos sure look impressive. I could not find the information how many cycles these patients received?

I think the PSMA Lu-177 treatment offers great hope to men with metastatic PCa but people should know that not all men respond to it. I believe that the photos above show the eight best responses from a large group of treated men. Most men did not do as well and some had very little improvement.

Should you try the treatment? I think it's worth trying - at least to the point of finding out whether the PSMA (prostate specific membrane antigen) is present in your metastases. If the PSMA PET scans show that you will likely benefit from the treatment then go for it. Sometimes everything works out great even for those of us who have been unlucky until now. You might possibly get a remission that seems miraculous, as the men in the photo did.
