About Actimab-A™

Actimab-A is a drug candidate construct made using Actinium Pharmaceuticals' proprietary patented technology for arming monoclonal antibodies with alpha emitters actinium 225 and bismuth 213.  Antibodies are used as high precision delivery systems that bring powerful alpha emitters into or immediately next to targeted cancer cells.  Actimab-A consists of the Lintuzumab monoclonal antibody and actinium 225.

Actinium-225 decays by giving off high-energy alpha particles, which kill cancer cells. When actinium decays, it produces a series of daughter atoms, each of which gives off its own alpha particle, increasing the chances that the cancer cell will be destroyed.  The technology was first developed by Dr. David Scheinberg at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. 

Lintuzumab is a monoclonal antibody that targets CD33, found on myeloid leukemia cells. It is the humanized version of M195, the antibody initially developed by Dr. David Scheinberg of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
