About Algeta
Algeta ASA is a Norwegian therapeutics company built on world-leading expertise in nuclear medicine and oncology and dedicated to the development of novel anticancer therapeutics based on alpha particle emitting radionuclides.

By harnessing the unique characteristics of alpha emitters, such as high potency and short range, Algeta is developing new therapeutic candidates and technologies targeting metastatic and disseminated tumors and promising unrivalled potency without unacceptable toxicities.

Algeta's lead product candidate, Alpharadin, has completed one Phase II trial and is currently in two further Phase II clinical trials as a potential new treatment of hormone refractory prostate cancer. Based on results to date, it is expected to progress to clinical Phase III trials. Alpharadin is a novel bone-seeking radiopharmaceutical based on the alpha particle emitter radium-223 and may potentially target skeletal metastases from multiple cancer types.

Algeta is also developing other technologies for delivering alpha emitters including microparticles, liposomes and its receptor targeting technology, which is designed to enhance the potency of therapeutic antibodies and other tumor-targeting molecules by linking them to the alpha particle emitter thorium-227.

The Company is headquartered in Oslo, Norway, and was founded in 1997 as Anticancer Therapeutic Inventions.

Alpharadin and Algeta are trademarks of Algeta ASA.
