ITM to Host Scientific Precision Oncology Symposium in Parallel to the ASCO Annual Meeting on Friday, June 03, 2022

ITM Isotope Technologies Munich SE (ITM), a leading radiopharmaceutical biotech company, today announced that it will host a scientific symposium on precision oncology titled "Targeted Radionuclide Therapy ? present and future prospects" held as an ancillary event in parallel to the 2022 ASCO® Annual Meeting. The symposium will feature key opinion leaders in the field and will be held in a hybrid format on June 03, 2022 from 11:00 am ? 12:30 pm CST in the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, in Chicago, USA and online.

Targeted Radionuclide Therapy is an approach to treating a variety of cancer types. As new areas of interest and advancing approaches to implementing this uniquely selective therapeutic modality continue to be highlighted, the session will offer an overview of the key topics. The panel will focus on the clinical application of Targeted Radionuclide Therapy in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors, prostate cancer and potential future prospects. They will also spotlight the benefits and risks of this therapeutic approach, address any challenges that may be encountered, and provide valuable insights to their patient management experiences. Participants will be able to interact with the speakers in a Q&A session at the end of the event.

About Targeted Radionuclide Therapy

Targeted Radionuclide Therapy is an emerging class of cancer therapeutics, which seeks to deliver radiation directly to the tumor while minimizing radiation exposure to normal tissue. Targeted radiopharmaceuticals are created by linking a therapeutic radioisotope to a targeting molecule (e.g., peptide, antibody, small molecule) that can precisely recognize tumor cells and bind to tumor-specific characteristics, like receptors on the tumor cell surface. As a result, the radioisotope accumulates at the tumor site and decays, releasing a small amount of ionizing radiation, thereby destroying tumor tissue. The highly precise localization enables targeted treatment with minimal impact to healthy surrounding tissue.
