NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: ATNM.OB) ("Actinium" or "the Company"), a biopharmaceutical Company developing innovative targeted payload immunotherapeutics for the treatment of advanced cancers, will host a general corporate update and Virtual Roadshow to discuss the current plans for Iomab™-B at 11:00 AM EDT on November 11, 2013.
The company will discuss the outcome of the recent end of phase two FDA meeting and also the next steps for its Iomab™-B product candidate which is being readied for a pivotal trial. Iomab™-B has completed several physician sponsored clinical trials examining its potential as a bone marrow conditioning regimen for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in various blood cancers including a phase I/II study (study 1432) in relapsed and/or refractory elderly acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients. The results of study 1432 demonstrated the potential of Iomab™-B to create a new treatment paradigm for HSCT by: expanding the pool to ineligible patients who do not have any viable treatment options currently; enabling a shorter and safer preparatory interval for HCST; reducing post-transplant complications; and showing a clear survival benefit including curative potential.

Iomab™-B is a radioimmunoconjugate consisting of BC8, a novel murine monoclonal antibody, and iodine 131 radioisotope. BC8 has been developed by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to target CD45, a pan-leukocytic antigen widely expressed on white blood cells. This antigen makes BC8 potentially useful in targeting white blood cells in preparation for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in a number of blood cancer indications, including acute myeloid leukemia (AML), chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), Hodgkin disease (HD), Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) and multiple myeloma (MM). When labeled with radioactive isotopes, BC8 carries radioactivity directly to the site of cancerous growth and bone marrow while avoiding effects of radiation on most healthy tissues.
