RadioMedix and Orano Med are pleased to announce the initiation of the Phase II clinical trial of AlphaMedix™ with the treatment of the first patient on December 21st, 2021. This trial will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of 212Pb-DOTAMTATE (AlphaMedix™) in Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) of naive patients with somatostatin receptor-expressing neuroendocrine tumors (NET).
“The initiation of the Phase II trial is a significant milestone in the clinical development of our innovative targeted alpha-emitter radiotherapy and brings us one step closer to having this drug available for our patients”, said Ebrahim Delpassand, MD, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RadioMedix. “Targeted alpha therapy (TAT) with 212Pb-DOTAMTATE has been shown to be well-tolerated and preliminary efficacy results are highly promising. If these results are confirmed in the Phase II trial, it could potentially provide substantial benefit over currently FDA approved therapies for patients with metastatic or inoperable SSTR-expressing NETs regardless of the grade and location of the primary tumor”, added Dr. Delpassand.
