Dr. Nguyen on study of PSMA-targeting fluorescent dye for image-guided prostatectomy

Hao G. Nguyen MD, PhD, describes the near-infrared, PSMA-targeting fluorophore IS-002, and discusses the background and findings from a phase 1 study of the agent that he presented at the 2022 AUA Annual Meeting. Results of the study showed that IS-002 enabled enhanced intraoperative tumor detection during robotic prostatectomy, according to Nguyen.
