(NYSE MKT: ATNM) ("Actinium" or the "Company"), a biopharmaceutical Company developing innovative targeted payload immunotherapeutics for the treatment of patients with advanced cancers, announced today that the Company will host a webinar to discuss results of the Phase 1 portion of the Actimab-A Phase 1/2 trial. The webinar will include a discussion of the Actimab-A Phase trial results, certain key findings of the HuM195-Alpha program enabled by the latest Actimab-A results, potential future development opportunities and next steps for the upcoming Phase 2 portion of the Actimab-A trial.
Actimab-A is an alpha particle radioimmunotherapy being developed for patients over the age of 60 who are newly diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Actimab-A is the second generation therapy from the HuM195-Alpha program, which Actinium licensed from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). The current Phase 1/2 trial for Actimab-A is the fourth clinical trial under the HuM195-Alpha program with over 85 patients treated thus far as part of this program.

Sandesh Seth, Actinium's Executive Chairman, stated, "Actinium is deeply committed to the development of Actimab-A and our HuM195-Alpha program as we believe our targeted approach of delivering alpha particles holds significant promise in AML and potentially other indications where there are serious unmet patient needs. We look forward to hosting this webinar to discuss the safety and efficacy results of Actimab-A from the Phase 1 portion of the ongoing Phase 1/2 trial. We will also be providing further insight into the potential development strategy for Actimab-A in the light of key findings from our HuM195-Alpha program which were enabled by the trial results."
Actimab-A, Actinium's most advanced alpha particle immunotherapy (APIT) program, is currently in a single arm, multicenter trial Phase 1/2 trial for patients newly diagnosed with AML over the age of 60. Actimab-A is being developed as a first-line therapy and it has attracted support from some of the leading experts at the most prestigious cancer treatment hospitals due to the potential of its safety and efficacy profile. Actimab-A consists of the monoclonal antibody, lintuzumab, and the radioisotope, 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. Lintuzumab is the humanized version of M195 and is a monoclonal antibody that targets CD33, which is abundantly found on myeloid leukemia cells. Both the alpha particle technology and lintuzumab were initially developed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
