NAME OF THE MEDICINAL PRODUCT

THERACAP

131 TM

37 MBq-5.55 GBq capsules, hard

2.

QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE COMPOSITION

THERACAP is presented as a single yellow capsule containing sodium [

l] iodide in the following

dosage range; 37-740 MBq in 37 MBq steps, 50 – 1000 MBq in 50 MBq steps, 0.925-5.55 GBq in 185

MBQ steps and 1000 – 5500 MBq in 100 MBq steps at the activity reference date. Each capsule

contains a maximum of 20 µg of sodium iodide. The specific activity of the sodium [

l] iodide is not

less than 222 GBq/mg.

Iodine-131 is produced by fission of uranium-235 or by neutron bombardment of stable tellurium in a

nuclear reactor. Iodine-131 has a half life of 8.02 days. It decays by emission of gamma radiations of

365 keV (81.7%), 637 keV (7.2%) and 284 keV (6.1%) and beta radiations of maximal energy of 606 keV

to stable xenon-131.

This medicinal product contains:

not more than 1.9 mmol (44

mg) of sodium per capsule.

For a full list of excipients, see section 6.1.

CLINICAL PARTICULARS

4.1 Therapeutic indications

Radioiodine thyroid therapy is indicated for:

Treatment of Graves’ disease, toxic multinodular goitre or autonomous nodules.

Treatment of papillary and follicular thyroid carcinoma including metastatic disease.

medications.

4.2 Posology and method of administration

The activity administered is a matter for clinical judgement. The therapeutic effect is only achieved

after several months.

For the treatment of hyperthyroidism

The activity administered is usually in the range of 200-800 MBq but repeated treatment may be

necessary. The dose required depends on the diagnosis, the size of the gland, thyroid uptake and

iodine clearance. Patients should be rendered euthyroid medically whenever possible before giving

radioiodine treatment for hyperthyroidism.

For thyroid ablation and treatment of metastases

The administered activities following total or sub total thyroidectomy to ablate remaining thyroid

tissue are in the range of 1850-3700 MBq. It depends on the remnant size and radioiodine uptake. In

subsequent treatment for metastases, administered activity is in the range 3700-11100 MBq.

The activity to be administered in children and adolescents should be a fraction of the adult dose

calculated from the body weight/surface area methods according to the following equation.

Paediatric dose (MBq) = Adult dose (MBq) x child weight (kg)

70 kg

Paediatric dose (MBq) = Adult dose (MBq) x child surface (m

The capsule is administered orally together with a drink. It should be swallowed whole.

In patients with suspected gastrointestinal disease, great care should be taken when administering

sodium [

I] iodide capsules. The capsules should be swallowed whole with sufficient fluid to ensure

clear passage into the stomach and upper small intestine. Concomitant use of H

antagonists or proton

pump inhibitors is advised.

After high doses used e.g. for the treatment of thyroid carcinoma, patients should be encouraged to

increase oral fluids to have frequent bladder emptying to reduce bladder radiation.

4.3 Contraindications

Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients

Pregnancy.

For diagnostic purposes in children under 10 years of age.

Thyroid

when

iodine-123

technetium-99m is not available.

Patients with dysphagia, oesophageal stricture, active gastritis, gastric erosions and peptic

ulcer.

Patients with suspected reduced gastrointestinal motility.

4.4 Special warnings and special precautions for use

The possibility of hypersensitivity including anaphylactic / anaphylactoid reactions should always be

considered. Advanced life support facilities should be readily available.

For radioprotection reasons following therapeutic doses, it is recommended to avoid close contact

between mother and child for at least one week.

The risk of second primary malignancies in thyroid cancer survivors treated with radioactive iodine is

slightly increased compared to thyroid cancer survivors not treated with radioiodine.

This medicinal product contains not more than 1.9 mmol (44 mg) of sodium in each capsule. To be

taken into consideration by patients on a controlled sodium diet.

The administration of high dose radioiodine may result in significant environmental hazard. Suitable

precautions should be taken concerning the activity eliminated by the patients in order to avoid any

contamination.

The therapeutic administration of sodium [

I] iodide in patients with significant renal impairment

requires special attention with regards to administered activity.

There is inconclusive evidence of a beneficial effect of saliva stimulation to avoid sialadenitis.

low-iodine

diet

prior

therapy

thyroid

tissue.

Thyroid

replacement therapy should be stopped prior to radioiodine administration for thyroid carcinoma to

ensure adequate uptake.

Hyponatraemia: Serious manifestations of hyponatraemia have been reported after sodium iodide

[131I] therapy in elderly patients who have undergone total thyroidectomy. Risk factors include older

age, female sex, use of thiazide diuretics and hyponatraemia at the start of sodium iodide [131I]

therapy. Regular serum electrolytes measurements shall be considered for these patients.

Sperm banking should be considered for young men who have extensive disease and therefore may

need high radioiodine therapeutic doses.

Contraception for 6 months (for patients with benign thyroid conditions) or 12 months (for patients

with thyroid cancer) is recommended for both sexes after therapeutic administration of sodium [

iodide.

For each patient, exposure to ionising radiation must be justifiable on the basis of likely benefit. The

activity administered must be such that the resulting radiation dose is as low as reasonable achievable

bearing in mind the need to obtain the intended diagnostic or therapeutic result.

4.5 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

Pharmacotherapeutic

group:

therapeutic

radiopharmaceuticals,

sodium

iodine,

Code:

V10XA01

Iodide, in the amount used for therapeutic indications, is not known to have any pharmacological

effect. More than 90 % of the radiation effects result from beta radiation which has a mean range of

0.5 mm.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic properties

After oral administration, sodium [

I] iodide is absorbed rapidly from the upper gastrointestinal tract

(90 % in 60 minutes). The pharmacokinetics follow that of un -labelled iodide. From the extra thyroidal

compartment it is predominantly taken up by the thyroid or excreted renally. Small amounts of sodium

I] iodide are taken up by salivary glands, gastric mucosa and would also be localised in breast milk,

the placenta and choroids plexus.

The effective half-life of radioiodine in plasma is in the order of 12 hours whereas that for radioiodine

taken

thyroid

gland

about

days.

Thus,

after

administration

sodium

iodide,

approximately 40% of the activity has an effective half life of 0.4 days and the remaining 60%, 8 days.

Urinary excretion is 37-75%, faecal excretion is about 10% with almost negligible excretion in sweat.

5.3 Preclinical safety data

No acute toxicity is expected or observed.

There are no data available on the toxicity of repeated doses of sodium iodide nor on its effects on

reproduction in animals or its mutagenic or carcinogenic potential.

DOSIMETRY

The ICRP model refers to intravenous administration. Since absorption of radioiodide is rapid and

complete, this model is applicable in case of oral administration also but there is a further radiation

dose to the stomach wall in addition to that due to gastric and salivary excretion. Assuming that the

mean residence time in the stomach is 0.5 hr, the absorbed dose to the stomach wall increase by

about 30 % for iodine-131.

Radiation dose to specific organs, which may not be the target organ of therapy can be influenced

significantly by pathophysiological changes induced by the disease process.

As part of the risk-benefit assessment it is advised that the effective dose equivalent (EDE) and likely

radiation doses to individual target organ(s) be calculated prior to administration. The activity might

then be adjusted according to thyroid mass, biological half-life and the “re-cycling” factor which takes

into account the physiological status of the patient (including iodine depletion) and the underlying

pathology.
