Nordion führt patientenspezifische Dosierungen für Leberkrebstherapie TheraSphere® in Europa und Kanada ein

OTTAWA, Kanada, March 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Ärzte können nun interventionelle Onkologiebehandlungen auf die individuellen Patientenbedürfnisse anpassen.

Nordion Inc. (TSX: NDN) (NYSE: NDZ), ein führender Anbieter von Produkten und Dienstleistungen zur Prävention, Diagnose und Behandlung von Krankheiten, bietet ab heute in Europa und Kanada patientenspezifische Dosierungen für TheraSphere®, die Y-90-Mikrosphären-Behandlung für Leberkrebs von Nordion, an.   Nordion hat außerdem bei der US-amerikanischen Arzneimittelzulassungsbehörde FDA die Zulassung der Dosierungsfunktion in den USA beantragt.

Zusätzlich zu standardmäßigen Dosierungsampullenkonfigurationen bietet Nordion nun eine erweiterte Auswahl an TheraSphere-Behandlungsoptionen mit patientenspezifischen Dosierungen in einer größeren Bandbreite an Mengenstufen. Die patientenspezifischen Dosierungen wurden entwickelt, um eine größere Behandlungsflexibilität für Ärzte zu ermöglichen, Verwaltungszeit zu sparen und Produktabfälle zu reduzieren, sowie unnötige Strahlungsaussetzung für Patienten und medizinisches Personal zu begrenzen.

Nordion hat außerdem sein Treatment Window Illustrator-Werkzeug verbessert, um zu zeigen, wie patientenspezifische Dosierungen ausgewählt und mit Standardampullenkonfigurationen verglichen werden können.

Nordion nimmt am jährlichen Treffen 2012 der Society of Interventional Radiology (Gesellschaft für interventionelle Radiologie, SIR) vom 24. bis zum 29. März in San Francisco teil. Nordion wird am Stand mit der Nr. 1234 vertreten sein, und freut sich auf zahlreiche Gespräche über TheraSphere mit teilnehmenden Ärzten. Nordion wird an seinem Stand zwei Lernveranstaltungen unter dem Motto "Eat and Be Educated" (Essen und Lernen) abhalten:

Über TheraSphere

TheraSphere ist eine Therapie zur Behandlung von Leberkrebs, die aus Millionen kleiner Glasperlen besteht (20-30 Mikrometer im Durchmesser), die radioaktives Yttrium-90 (Y-90) enthalten. Die Perlen werden über einen Katheter von einem Arzt in die Hauptarterie der Leber eingeführt; damit kann der Tumor direkt über den Blutfluss behandelt werden.

In den USA wird TheraSphere zur Behandlung von Patienten mit nicht resezierbaren, hepatozellulären Karzinomen (HCC), der häufigsten Form des primären Leberkrebs, eingesetzt und kann zur zeitlichen Überbrückung bis zum chirurgischen Eingriff bzw. bis zur Transplantation bei diesen Patienten verwendet werden.   Es ist auch für die Behandlung von HCC-Patienten mit Pfortaderthrombose (PVT) indiziert.   TheraSphere hat in den USA von der US-amerikanischen Arzneimittelzulassungsbehörde FDA eine HDE-Zulassung (Humanitarian Device Exemption) erhalten. HDE-Zulassungen basieren auf nachgewiesener Sicherheit und wahrscheinlichen klinischen Vorteilen. Die Wirksamkeit der Indikation für die Verwendung wurde jedoch noch nicht bewiesen.

TheraSphere® wird in der Europäischen Union und in Kanada für die Behandlung hepatischer Neoplasie bei Patienten verwendet, bei denen ein Arterienkatheter in geeigneter Weise positioniert wurde.

Zu den häufig auftretenden Nebenwirkungen gehören leichte bis mäßige Erschöpfung, Schmerzen und Übelkeit für ungefähr eine Woche. Ärzte beschreiben diese Symptome als ähnlich denen einer Virusgrippe. Bei einigen Patienten kann es zu Appetitlosigkeit und vorübergehenden Änderungen einiger Blutwerte kommen. Für ausführlichere Informationen über seltene oder schwerwiegendere Nebenwirkungen lesen Sie bitte den Beipackzettel von TheraSphere unter: http://www.nordion.com/therasphere.
