Just to alert fellow members, Amgen are gearing up to begin first phase human trials on their new immunotherapy drug, AMG 160, whit trials to begin in Sydney and Melbourne.  This new drug utilises PSMA to direct the immune system to the cancer cells.  You can find more information on the Amgen Clinical Trials website.

Hi Kezza2,

I'm interested to find out more? Is Amgen similar to Lutetium- 177. 

I'm speaking to my oncologist tomorrow and there is not much left for me to try. 

In this order I have already been on Androcure, Zytiga, Docetaxel, Cabazitaxel, Xtandi now my PSA is rising again.

He has suggested perhaps trying Carboplatin. or paying  $10,000 per treatment for Lutetium as he says I may not be eligible for inclusion in the trial. 

thanks for any suggestions. 

Kezza

Hi Kezza,

From what I understand, AMG 160 is a PSMA directed immunotherapy treatment.  I am sure your oncologist will be aware of the trial, and would be the first person to talk to about it and possibly getting on the trial.  The details of eligibility etc are on the clinical trials website at

  https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03792841

Details of the pre-clinical trials are at :  https://meetinglibrary.asco.org/record/169946/abstract

Hang in there comrade.

Hi Kezza 2, 

Thanks for your update. Yes I spoke to Dr this morning and that trial is in very early days and not for me. 

I'm hoping to get on the LuPin Trial. 

I'll keep you posted. 

Thanks
