Actinium Pharmaceuticals (NYSE:ATNM) announced today that the Medical College of Wisconsin has treated its first patient in a Phase 1 trial studying Actinium’s Actimab-A in combination with CLAG-M for patients with relapsed or refractory (r/r) acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

As quoted in the press release:

Dr. Mark Berger, Actinium’s Chief Medical Officer said, “We are grateful for all of the hard work that the team at MCW has put in to get to this important milestone.  Actimab-A has demonstrated promising activity as a single agent in difficult to treat patient populations that we attribute to its targeting ability, potency and tolerability.  We are excited to be leveraging these strengths of Actimab in a combination regimen to bring this potentially important therapy to a greater number of patients in indications that need improved outcomes.  We are confident that the addition of Actimab to a salvage chemotherapy regimen has the potential to improve outcomes through improved response rates and by increasing the number of patients that can receive a bone marrow transplant.”

Actimab-A is an ARC or Antibody Radio-Conjugate comprised of the anti-CD33 monoclonal antibody lintuzumab labeled with the radioisotope actinium-225. CD33 is a marker expressed on AML cells of virtually all AML patients.  Actinium’s CD33 ARC has been studied in over 100 patients to date and is the only CD33 targeting agent being studied in a broad range of diseases in which the CD33 antigen is expressed including AML, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and multiple myeloma. CLAG-M is a salvage chemotherapy regimen commonly used to treat patients with AML that consists of cladribine, cytarabine, filgrastim, and mitoxantrone.
