Ariceum starts radiopharmaceutical trial



The first patient in a trial of a new radiopharmaceutical has been dosed – paving the way for a potentially new treatment for extensive stage small cell lung cancer, the developer Ariceum Therapeutics GmbH announced on 7 September. The Phase 1b study is taking place at the Murdoch University Health Center in Perth, Australia. It will investigate the safety and tolerability of a theranostic, or a diagnostic agent paired with the radiopharmaceutical product, 177Lu-satoreotide tetraxetan.
