Eckert & Ziegler to supply radioisotopes to Alpha Tau
Eckert & Ziegler AG (ISIN DE0005659700) yesterday signed a multi-year supply agreement with Alpha Tau Medical (Tel Aviv, Israel) for the supply of Thorium-228. The radioisotope is used for the production of Alpha DaRT, a new innovative therapy for the treatment of a variety of solid tumors. Alpha Tau is currently running multiple global clinical trials with promising results and expects to receive marketing authorizations soon.
“We are pleased with this order, which demonstrates the increasing interest in alpha emitters for cancer treatment. Alpha particles are well suited for the treatment of different tumor types due to their high energy and short-range. They destroy the cancer cell by causing complex double-strand DNA breaks from which the cancer cell cannot recover,” explained Dr. Lutz Helmke, Executive Board member at Eckert & Ziegler and Head of the Radiopharmaceutical Segment.
“With Eckert & Ziegler, we have found an isotope specialist that supports our innovative Alpha DaRT therapy. We appreciate Eckert & Ziegler’s ongoing help and look forward to a fruitful ongoing relationship as we continue our clinical trials and prepare for regulatory approvals and product launches around the globe,” added Uzi Sofer, CEO of Alpha Tau.
