Cellectar Biosciences Files Investigational New Drug Application to Evaluate I-131-CLR1404 in Clinical Trials in Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma

August 12, 2014 — Cellectar Biosciences Inc. submitted an Investigational New Drug (IND) application to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to begin clinical study of I-131-CLR1404, a highly-selective, cancer-targeting radiopharmaceutical, in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, an incurable cancer of plasma cells.

"Despite the emergence of new treatment options, no cure exists for multiple myeloma and the limitations of available therapies are particularly evident in patients that have relapsed or become resistant to treatment creating a clear need for the development of additional novel therapeutics," commented Simon Pedder, president and chief executive officer. "The radiosensitivity of multiple myeloma has been well established and preclinical models show pronounced uptake of our phospholipid ether (PLE) analog delivery platform and significant therapeutic response to a single dose administration of I-131-CLR1404. We believe the selective nature and prolonged retention of our agent could enable effective, localized treatment to suppress or eliminate malignant plasma cells while preserving the important functions of normal blood cells."
