ST. LOUIS, July 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Curium, a world leader in nuclear medicine, announced today that it has submitted its 505(b)(2) New Drug Application for Lutetium Lu 177 Dotatate Injection, which, if approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), would be intended for the treatment of somatostatin receptor-positive gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETS).
