NEW YORK -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE MKT:ATNM) (“Actinium” or “the Company”), a biopharmaceutical company developing innovative targeted payload immunotherapeutics for the treatment of advanced cancers, will participate in the Sidoti Ninth Annual Micro-Cap Conference in New York City on May 9, 2014.
Dr. Kaushik J. Dave, President and CEO of Actinium, will be reviewing the Company’s clinical developments and strategy in his presentation that will be held at 9:20 AM ET that day.
Dr. Dave and other members of the management team will be available for one-on-one meetings at the conference.

Actimab-A, Actinium's second program is continuing its clinical development in a Phase 1/2 trial for newly diagnosed AML patients over the age of 60 in a single arm multicenter trial. The Company expects to make significant progress in the Phase 2 portion of the trial and announce interim results in 2014. Actimab-A is being developed as a first line therapy and has attracted support from some of the leading experts at the most prestigious cancer treatment hospitals due to the potential of its safety and efficacy profile.
Actimab-A consists of the Lintuzumab monoclonal antibody and actinium 225. Actinium-225 decays by giving off high-energy alpha particles, which kill cancer cells. When actinium decays, it produces a series of daughter atoms, each of which gives off its own alpha particle, increasing the chances that the cancer cell will be destroyed. Lintuzumab is the humanized version of M195 and is a monoclonal antibody that targets CD33, found on myeloid leukemia cells. Both the alpha particle technology and lintuzumab were initially developed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
