MTTI features EBTATE advances at the 2022 SNMMI meeting in Vancouver, BC

West Chester, PA, June 9, 2022 — Molecular Targeting Technologies, Inc. (MTTI), a clinical stage oncology company, will highlight advances on its EvaTheraTM radiotheranostics platform at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) meeting in Vancouver, BC, on June 11-15, 2022 (Exhibit booth #1715).  The EvaThera platform includes  EBTATETM (177Lu-DOTA-EB-TATE) for Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NENs), Hürthle cell thyroid and nasopharyngeal cancers and EBRGDTM (177Lu-DOTA-EB-RGD)  for glioblastoma multiforme and non-small cell lung cancer.

A video featuring the EBTATE story (see link below) will be released at the meeting. 

In addition, two abstracts highlighting MTTI’s EBTATE & our PET imaging agent,18F-glucarate, were selected for oral and poster presentations:

  • Evaluation of Safety, Biodistribution and Dosimetry of a long-Acting Radiolabeled Somatostatin Analogue 177Lu-DOTA-EB-TATE with and without Amino Acid Infusion by Qingxing Liu, Yuanyuan Jiang, Koon Pak, Guochang Wang, Jingjing Zhang, Xiaoyuan Chen and Zhaohui Zhu (oral presentation).
    EBTATE treatment without amino acid  infusion, normally used in current treatments to block drug impact on non-target organs, has acceptable, minor effects on the kidneys and does no harm to kidney function.  EBTATE may significantly improve patient comfort vs. current treatments.
  • Assessment of 18F-glucarate as a potential PET tracer for cancer imaging by Junling Li, Huaiyu Zheng, Levi Beverly, Brian Gray, Koon Pak and Chin K. Ng (poster presentation).
    18F-glucarate uptake in both in vitro and in vivo correlated well with the degree of cell death and shows early tumor response to chemotherapy, enabling faster assessment of treatment efficacy.
