Information for the public

Lutetium‑177 vipivotide tetraxetan (Pluvicto) is not normally available on the NHS for treating prostate-specific membrane antigen (PMSA)-positive hormone-relapsed metastatic prostate cancer in adults:

  • after taxane-based chemotherapy and an anti-androgen or
  • when taxanes are ‘medically unsuitable’.

Your doctor should talk with you about other treatment options. If you are already having it, you should be able to continue until you and your doctor decide when best to stop.
