WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Parthenon Associates, LLC ("Parthenon" www.parthenonassociates.com), a Financial Consulting firm that provides research and strategic advisory services to Life Sciences, Biotechnology, and Development-Stage Technology companies, has released its report on Targeted Payload Cancer Therapeutics (TPCTs). The report examines the promise of TPCTs, drugs that combine precision cancer-targeting agents with toxins or radioisotopes, to create powerful and safe treatments for many forms of cancer with a $15 billion market potential. An in-depth analysis of the dynamic cancer market, cancer treatment, TPCT development, TPCT economic and reimbursement issues, as well as an examination of companies developing these novel drugs are included.
- Targeted Payload Cancer Therapeutics recently hit three milestones, rekindling excitement among investors about their marketplace viability, including FDA approval of a TPCT drug and promising results in Phase III trials of two different products.
- There is a small but growing pipeline of promising TPCTs in earlier phases of clinical testing. These products are positioned as first line treatments for indications with significant unmet medical needs.
- Next generation TPCTs are expected to be priced at a premium based on the cost of alternative treatments, survival benefits, and the economic/reimbursement environment. Product case studies suggest potential prices ranging from $60,000 to more than $100,000 per treatment.
- Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is poised to attain a leadership position in the development TPCTs that combine radioisotope payloads with monoclonal antibody targeting agents. The company has two lead products already tested in about 300 patients with Phase I and II clinical trials underway: Iomab-B for preparing difficult-to-treat cancer patients for hematopoietic stem cell transplant and Actimab-A for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in the elderly.
- Actinium's Alpha Particle Immunotherapy Platform (APIT) uses more powerful, safer radiation than in current TPCT products and has broad applications for the treatment of many cancers.
