With Bone Marrow Transplants Rising, New Therapy Gives Hope to Those Over 55
Date:1/8/2014

tment with Iomab™-B prepares a patient for bone marrow transplant in only 10 days, compared to approximately six weeks required with traditional care—a potentially vital difference in the face of a fast-evolving cancer.

"The only potentially curative treatment option for older AML patients is bone marrow transplant, but the majority of patients over age 55 are ineligible for conventional care due to health reasons and/or severity of their disease," says Kaushik J. Dave, Ph.D., President and CEO of Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. "We believe Iomab™-B offers a positive step toward their continued treatment. Almost all patients are eligible, and preliminary studies indicate their survival rates are significantly higher as a result. It also can help prepare older patients for bone marrow treatment who have survived chemo but whose AML either was not cured or returned."

On the strength of results showing its potential in Phase 1/2 trials, the company is poised to begin a Phase 3 trial during 2014. The primary endpoint will be the rate of durable complete remission among the treated patients. A series of physician-led trials involving Iomab™-B is also ongoing.
