Algeta ASA (Oslo Stock Exchange: ALGETA)

Algeta is a company focused on developing novel targeted therapies for patients with cancer based on its alpha-pharmaceutical platform. Algeta's lead product Alpharadin (radium-223 chloride) is a first-in-class, highly targeted alpha-pharmaceutical under clinical evaluation to improve survival in patients with bone metastases from advanced cancer. Its localized action helps preserve the surrounding healthy tissue thereby limiting side-effects. Alpharadin is being developed under a development and commercialization agreement with Bayer Pharma AG (formerly Bayer Schering Pharma AG). In June 2011, a global phase III clinical trial (ALSYMPCA) of Alpharadin to treat bone metastases in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) was stopped early after meeting its primary endpoint of significantly improving overall survival. Alpharadin is also under investigation in phase II clinical trials as a potential new treatment for bone metastases in endocrine-refractory breast cancer patients, and in a phase I/IIa trial in combination with docetaxel chemotherapy in for bone metastases CRPC patients. The development of bone metastases represents a serious development for cancer patients as they are associated with a dramatic decline in patient health and quality of life, ultimately leading to death. Bone metastases represent a major unmet medical need, occurring frequently in certain late-stage cancers, e.g. prostate (in up to 90% patients), breast (up to 60 %) and lung (up to 40%). Algeta is also exploring the potential of Targeted Thorium Conjugates (TTCs), which are based on conjugating the alpha-emitter thorium-227 to targeting molecules, as a basis of a future pipeline of tumor-targeting alpha-pharmaceutical candidates. The Company is headquartered in Oslo, Norway, and is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange (Ticker: ALGETA). *
