What is Detectnet?
Detectnet is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by RadioMedix Inc. and Curium US LLC. Detectnet is a radioactive diagnostic agent used with positron emission tomography (PET) for the localization of somatostatin receptor-positive neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) in adult patients.
What doses of Detectnet are available?
Detectnet is available as an intravenous injection form, in the following doses: 148 MBq (4 mCi) (37 MBq (1 mCi) per 1 mL) in a single-dose vial.
A negative scan after the administration of Detectnet in patients who do not have a history of NET disease does not negate disease, and there is a risk for image misinterpretation. The uptake of copper Cu 64 dotatate can also be seen in a variety of other tumors that also have somatostatin receptors, as well as in other non-cancerous conditions that express somatostatin receptors including thyroid disease or subacute inflammation, or may occur as a normal physiologic variant (e.g. uncinate process of the pancreas).
In the event of a radiation overdose, the absorbed dose should be reduced by increasing the excretion of the radionuclide from the body by increasing hydration and regular bladder voiding. A diuretic may also be used. Detectnet is not recommended for pediatric use, and dose selection for geriatric use should usually start at the lower end of the dosing range.
Please see the full prescribing information for additional preparation, and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Detectnet active ingredients
Detectnet contains copper cu 64 dotatate as the active ingredient. Copper CU 64 is a positron beta-emitting radionuclide with emissions that allows PET imaging.
Detectnet side effects
The most common side effects of Detectnet in clinical trials include:
In rare instances, Detectnet can cause more serious side effects. These can include:
- Diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals, including Detectnet, add to a patient’s overall long-term radiation exposure. Long-term cumulative radiation exposure is associated with an increased radiation risk
Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Detectnet against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Detectnet to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
Detectnet drug interactions
Detectnet can interact with other medications. These include:
- Non-radioactive somatostatin analogs and copper Cu 64 dotatate competitively bind to somatostatin receptors (SSTR2). For patients on long-acting somatostatin analogs, a wash-out period of 28 days is recommended before imaging. For patients on short-acting somatostatin analogs, a washout period of 2 days is recommended
This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Detectnet.
