DGAP-News: Eckert & Ziegler Strahlen- und Medizintechnik AG / Key word(s): Incoming Orders
Berlin, 30 August 2019. 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.
