SNMMI Encourages FDA to Alleviate Shortage of Gallium-68

August 13, 2018

SNMMI wrote to the FDA about the shortage of generators for the production of Gallium-68 and suggested ways that the FDA could help alleviate those shortages. The letter is available here.  We noted that while there are a number of generators available for the production of Gallium-68, only one is currently approved for the 68Ga-dotatate (NetSpot). We suggest several ways in which the FDA could assist in alleviating this shortage.
