Houston (TX), Jan. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RadioMedix Inc. Houston-based clinical-stage radiopharmaceutical company is proud to announce that the company was selected for the 2020 TechConnect Innovation Award. The annual TechConnect Business Innovation Awards program recognizes the top 15% of submitted technologies as ranked by the selection committee in multiple categories from the Energy, Nanomaterials, Health and Medicine, AI, Robotics, and others. The Summit is co-organized by SBIR/STTR Innovation Program and co-located with Defense Innovation Summit..
RadioMedix received the TechConnect Innovation Award based on the early results of the clinical studies of the targeted alpha-emitter therapy of cancer and its potential impact on cancer treatment. The company is developing and commercializing the platform of alpha-emitter-labeled drugs to selectively deliver a high dose of radiation to cancer cells with a limited negative effect on the surrounding normal cells. AlphaMedix ™, 212Pb-labeled peptide targeting somatostatin receptors overexpressing cancer cells, is co-developed in collaboration with Orano Med, and the project was funded in part by multiple NCI SBIR Contract awards.
“Targeted alpha-emitter therapy can overcome the limitations of the currently available methods of treatment due to the unique properties of alpha-emitting particles. This new therapeutic approach has brought new hope to our patients with advances neuroendocrine cancer”, said Dr. Ebrahim S. Delpassand, CEO of RadioMedix.
“TechConnect Award recognizes the team efforts of RadioMedix, Orano Med, and Excel Diagnostics and Nuclear Oncology Center to accelerate the development of the targeted alpha-emitter therapy. We are grateful for the opportunity to present our technology at the TechConnect Summit and recognition by the selection committee”, said Izabela Tworowska, Ph.D., CSO of RadioMedix.
