The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) have now updated their guidelines to allow use of Pylarify PSMA PET to qualify for Pluvicto (177Lu-PSMA617).
As you may know, the FDA only approved 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET to qualify for Pluvicto. That's because the FDA can only approve what was used in the VISION trial. But Pylarify is more widely available. Insurance companies and Medicare may still deny Pluvicto if there is only a Pylarify scan, but they will probably reverse their decision with the new NCCN guideline.
Novartis is still 6 weeks off from supplying Pluvicto.
