Maddocks has advised the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) on a new long-term IP and technology licence agreement with leading German radiopharmaceutical biotech company ITM Isotope Technologies Munich SE (ITM).

Under the agreement, ANSTO will continue to produce medical radioisotope n.c.a. Lutetium-177 (n.c.a. 177Lu) for the Australian and New Zealand markets using ITM’s production technology. N.c.a. 177Lu is used as a radiopharmaceutical precursor in Targeted Radionuclide Therapy, a novel treatment regimen in precision oncology.

The continuation of ANSTO’s long-standing partnership with ITM is significant as it allows local manufacturing to continue to support growing demand of patients in the Australia-New Zealand region.

The Maddocks team was led by IP and life sciences partner Ben Miller, with assistance from lawyer Sophie Vo and our IP and pharma regulatory team.
