“Curium is a world-class leader in nuclear medicine and an ideal partner for PyL, with the infrastructure, commercial footprint and experience in prostate cancer to position PyL for success in Europe,” stated Mark Baker, CEO of Progenics. “This collaboration accelerates development of PyL in this important market, while we focus our internal efforts on advancing our Phase 3 CONDOR trial and laying the groundwork for commercialization in the United States.”

Curium will meet with European regulators in the first half of 2019 to agree upon the regulatory path forward in the territory.

“PyL is a promising prostate cancer imaging agent in development today, and we are thrilled to add this superior product to our broad portfolio of nuclear medicine diagnostics,” stated Renaud Dehareng, Curium CEO. “PyL has the potential to detect small lesions, offering significant advantages over existing products and others in development. We look forward to leveraging our success with F-Choline in prostate cancer to advance the development and commercial uptake of this next-generation product.”
