Optimale Ergebnisse der Girentuximab-Redectane-TLX250 Bridging Studie
Interim Analysis of 89Zr-TLX250-CDx Bridging Study (?ZIR-DOSE?) Demonstrates Significantly Improved Patient Dosimetry Melbourne (Australia) 15 October 2018. Telix Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX.TLX) (?Telix?, the ?Company?), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of diagnostic and therapeutic products based on targeted radiopharmaceuticals or ?molecularly-targeted radiation? (MTR), today announced that it has completed an interim analysis of the ZIR-DOSE dosimetry bridging study, conducted as part of Phase III readiness for 89Zr-TLX250-CDx imaging in metastatic renal (kidney) cancer. The ZIR-DOSE study is a 10 patient Pk / multi-time point imaging study designed to compare the whole-body dosimetry of 89Zr-girentuximab (TLX250-CDx) with historical dosimetry data for 124I-girentuximab (Wilex AG / Heidelberg Pharma). As part of the commercial development of TLX250-CDx, Telix elected to change the isotope from 124I to 89Zr in order to lower patient dose, enhance image contrast, lower cost of goods and improve clinical workflow by eliminating the need for thyroid blocking. The ZIR-DOSE study achieves both a mass dose comparison between 5mg and 10mg injected dose, as well as full body dosimetry. An interim analysis was conducted by ABX CRO (Dresden, Germany) on the first 5 patients, covering both 5 and 10mg mass dose. The key findings are: ? A 10mg mass dose was confirmed as superior with a 50% reduction of liver dose and 25% less intestinal dose, compared with 5mg. ? The absorbed dose from 37 MBq (1mCi) of 89Zr-girentuximab is 18 mSv/mCi, approximately 25% less than that of 124I-girentuximab (24 mSv/mCi) ? validating that the change of isotope results in a meaningfully lower patient radiation dose. ? The dosimetry observed for 89Zr-girentuximab (TLX250-CDx) is well within legislated radiation safety limits in any regulatory jurisdiction. Telix CEO Dr. Christian Behrenbruch stated, ?This interim data enables us to proceed with first patients in our global multi-centre Phase III trial for TLX250-CDx with the confidence that we have the dosing and dosimetry right, with much improved image quality compared with iodinated girentuximab. Although this is a small study in terms of number of subjects, radiation dosimetry studies are especially demanding on patients and we are grateful to those who have volunteered to participate in the clinical trial, as well as our excellent clinical collaborators at Radboud University Medical Centre (RUMC) in the Netherlands.?

Hier mal eine prima Analyse zu der Telix Pipeline und den Stellenwert von Redectane für Heidelberg und Telix. Eckdaten HP erhält ca 30% für die Bilddiagnostik von ca 70 Millionen$ bei Zulassung und zusätzliche Milestones von etwas über 3 Millionen Euro. Ab 2021 könnten sie damit nach der Zulassung nur für die Bilddiagnostik mit etwa 20 Millionen$ rechnen.
Mit der Therapeutik plant Telix Phase 2b Studien und wenn alles klappt wäre hier mit Zulassungen etwa 2023 zu rechen. Die Umsatzbeteilgung beträgt hier für HP etwa 5% von ca gut 400 Millionen $ Also noch mal etwa 20 Millionen $.
Es sind noch Indikationserweiteung seitens Telix mit TLX250 geplant. Doch das wäre sehr langfristig und ist alles noch in Anfangsplanungen
Die Einzelheiten könnt ihr der folgenden prima Analyse entnehmen.
Gute News (und es waren viele) sind völlig unbedeutend, wenn bei von den Anlegern - vielleicht ja aus sehr gutem Grund - nicht zu Käufen führen. Nochmals 50 Prozent minus und die Aktie ist ein Pennystock.

As RTM continues to build its production capabilities, we welcome the opportunity to partner with innovative companies like Telix to bring new radiopharmaceuticals to market.?
Alte Hasen wissen, dass dies nur eine rein technische Erholung ist. Zum "Schwur" kommt es deshalb erst in den nächsten Tagen. Nach 50 Prozent minus bedarf es immerhin 100 Prozent plus, um den alten Kurs zu erreichen.
Wir haben unsere Investor Relations-Arbeit wieder intensiviert und halten den Kontakt zu internationalen institutionellen Investoren, die an den Fortschritten unserer Technologie interessiert sind. Wir wissen, dass es viel Arbeit und Geduld bedarf, um gerade in den USA langfristige Investoren zu gewinnen. Aber wir sind sehr optimistisch, dass wir mit guten klinischen Daten unserer innovativen Technologie neue Investoren an Bord holen können.
Hier ein kleines Abstract, dass auf weitere Indikationen von HP Redectane hinweist.
Preclinical validation of 111In-girentuximab-F(ab')2 as a tracer to image hypoxia related marker CAIX expression in head and neck cancer xenografts. Huizing FJ1, Hoeben BAW2, Franssen G3, Lok J2, Heskamp S3, Oosterwijk E4, Boerman OC3, Bussink J2. Author information
Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Hypoxia is a major cause of radio- and chemoresistance. Carbonic anhydrase IX (CAIX) is an endogenous hypoxia-related marker and an important prognostic marker. Assessment of CAIX expression may allow patient selection for hypoxia or CAIX-targeted treatment. The radioactive tracer 111In-girentuximab-F(ab')2 targets CAIX and can be used for SPECT imaging. Aim of this study was to validate and optimize 111In-girentuximab-F(ab')2 for imaging of CAIX expression in head and neck tumor xenografts. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Affinity and internalization kinetics of 111In-girentuximab-F(ab')2 were determined in vitro using CAIX-expressing SK-RC-52 cells. Tumor targeting characteristics were determined in athymic mice with six different head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (SCCNij) xenografts. Tracer uptake was measured by ex vivo radioactivity counting. Intratumoral distribution of tracer uptake was measured using autoradiography and CAIX expression was determined immunohistochemically. RESULTS: 26% of the tracer was internalized into the SK-RC-52 cells within 24h. The half maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) was 0.69±0.08nM. In biodistribution studies SCCNij153 tumors showed the highest tracer uptake: 4.1±0.8ID/g at 24h p.i. Immunohistochemical and autoradiographic analyses of the xenografts showed a distinct spatial correlation between localization of the tracer and CAIX expression. CONCLUSION: 111In-girentuximab-F(ab')2 has a high affinity for CAIX. In vivo tumor uptake correlated strongly with CAIX expression in different head and neck xenografts. These results suggest that 111In-girentuximab-F(ab')2 is a promising tracer for imaging of hypoxia-related CAIX expression.D
Telix Commences ZIRCON Phase III Renal Cancer Imaging Trial Melbourne
(Australia) ? 23 October 2018. Telix Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX:TLX) (?Telix?, the ?Company?), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of diagnostic and therapeutic products based on targeted radiopharmaceuticals or ?molecularlytargeted radiation? (?MTR?) has today announced that the Company is preparing to commence recruitment for its ZIRCON Phase III trial for imaging of clear cell renal cell cancer (ccRCC) with 89Zr-girentuximab (TLX250).
Concurrent with ongoing submissions to regulatory authorities and clinical sites in Europe, Telix has successfully completed a Clinical Trial Notification (CTN) submission to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and has now received its first Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) approval in Australia. The Company is planning to recruit patients at a total of four clinical sites in Australia.
Telix CEO Dr. Christian Behrenbruch stated, ?As an Australian-headquartered company, it?s very pleasing to be able to start to recruit patients in our own backyard while we finalize the regulatory documentation in the various international jurisdictions. Our EU submissions are progressing well with several key review milestones in November that should enable us to bring further international sites online before end-year. In all the countries we plan to run the ZIRCON study, there has been a high level of clinician enagement and we expect this trial to recruit well.?
About the ZIRCON Study ZIRCON (?Zirconium Imaging in Renal Cancer Oncology, EudraCT 2018-002773-21) is a global multi-centre Phase III study with at least 15 sites in Europe, Australia and the United States, subject to regulator approval in the various jurisdictions. ZIRCON is a prospective imaging trial in approximately 250 renal cancer patients undergoing kidney surgery, and will determine the sensitivity and specificity of TLX250-CDx PET imaging to detect clear cell renal cell cancer (ccRCC) in comparison with histologic ?ground truth? determined from surgical resection specimens.
About TLX250 TLX250 (girentuximab) is being developed by Telix Pharmaceuticals both as a therapeutic drug (177Lu-girentuximab, in Phase II) and a diagnostic PET imaging agent, denoted as TLX250-CDx (?Companion Diagnostic?). TLX250 is an antibody-based platform that targets carbonic anhydrase IX (CAIX), a cell surface target that is over-expressed in several serious cancers, including renal, lung, colorectal and esophageal cancer. High CAIX tumour expression is generally correlated with poor prognosis. Telix has prioritized the development of TLX250 for metastatic renal cell cancer (RCC), particularly the clear cell variant (ccRCC), which almost ubiquitously over-expresses CAIX.
About the Renal Cancer Imaging Market The opportunity for advanced renal cancer imaging techniques consists of several distinct clinical needs, ranging from patients that have had an incidental finding in the kidney, to diagnosed patients undergoing staging (or re-staging) and for treatment response assessment. Kidney cancer patients are commonly mis-staged as metastases may be very small and do not typically image well using conventional techniques. Between the US and EU5 there are about 120,000 new diagnoses a year (Globocan), where more precise diagnostic imaging tools would significantly impact patient care. In the US alone the prevalence of clear cell renal cell cancer (ccRCC) is approxiately 450,000 patients (SEER), a large proportion of which would benefit from better imaging for staging and treatment response.
