BREAKING News:

Actinium Highlights Foundational Patents Covering the Composition of Apamistamab Antibody and Iomab-B Antibody Radiation Conjugate for Targeted Conditioning Until 2037 and Recent EU Patent Activity

Meeting an unmet medical need is the Holy Grail for pharmaceutical companies.

Take the case of Actinium Pharmaceuticals (STOCK:ATNM) for example.

While COVID gets all the media attention nowadays, there is still a significant unmet medical need for the treatment of Relapsed or Refractory (R/R) Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

Unfortunately, standard therapies for R/R acute myeloid leukemia just are not sufficient.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, many patients either do not achieve complete response (CR) after CR or relapse. Furthermore, although 70-80% of patients achieve CR, many patients are refractory to, or relapse, following treatment.(1)

There is also a “lack of a uniform treatment strategy for this group, with the exception of allogeneic hematopoietic transplantation (HCT) as the only potentially curative treatment option for patients achieving a second complete remission.”(2)

Actinium Pharmaceuticals Could Potentially Solve This Unmet Need

Clinical trials for Actinum’s Actimab-A CLAG-M combination have been very encouraging. With this treatment, Actinum reported a remission rate of 86%. 71% of patients also achieved negative minimal residual disease status with the second dose of Actimab-A CLAG-M Combination.(3)

All patients in the third dosing cohort also completed treatment with a 0.75 uCi/kg dose of Actimab-A followed by CLAG-M and have already cleared their initial safety evaluation.(4) This cohort is expected to be the final cohort of the planned Phase 1 dose escalation trial.

Both investors and the medical community are eagerly anticipating the expected release of clinical results by the end of the year.

Actinium’s Remission Rates Appear Far Better Than Competitors’

According to Actinium’s study results, remission rates appear to be far better than competing therapies that have already been approved for treatment.

Actinium Pharmaceuticals has shown an overall response rate of 86% in tests, as compared to:(6)

  • 68% with g.ilteritinib (X.ospata)
  • 64% with v.enetoclax (V.enclexta) plus h.ypomethylating agents,
  • 40% with e.nasidenib (I.dhifa),
  • 19% with v.enetoclax alone, and
  • 17% with a.zacytidine alone

Actinium Pharmaceuticals (STOCK:ATNM), has Even More Exciting Treatments in the Works

Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that develops ARC’s or Antibody Radiation-Conjugates. This combines the targeting ability of antibodies with the killing ability of radiation therapies.

Some of the things Actinium has in the works are:

  • Lomab-B. This may be Actinium’s lead asset, and is in a pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial. This is being used as an induction and conditioning agent in patients over the age of 55 with relapsed or refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) prior to receiving a bone marrow transplant (BMT), also known as a hematopoietic transplant or HSCT.(7)
  • Actinium is also developing a multi-disease, multi-target pipeline of clinical-stage ARC’s targeting the antigens CD45 and CD33. The goal is for this to become a therapeutic either in combination with other therapeutic modalities or as a single agent for patients with a broad range of hematologic malignancies including AML or Acute Myeloid Leukemia, MDS or Myelodysplastic Syndrome MM or Multiple Myeloma.
  • The company’s proprietary AWE or Antibody Warhead Enabling technology platform has also garnered attention. Actinium’s intellectual property portfolio of over 100 patents, finite knowledge, and collective research and expertise in the field, plan to be leveraged in order to construct and study novel ARC’s and ARC combinations to bolster its pipeline for strategic purposes.
  • Actinium has also launched a brand new research and development (R&D) facility in New York City. This new research facility expands Actinium’s internal R&D capabilities and claims to focus on developing novel ARC candidates, ARC therapeutic combination strategies, and supporting AWE platform research collaborations.

Actinium’s Fundamentals are Strong…and Analysts Can’t Get Enough

For an experimental pharmaceutical company, Actinium’s fundamentals are quite enticing…and analysts are noticing.

The company, first and foremost, is extremely underlevered. It holds way more cash than debt on its balance sheet, and for a growing, experimental company, this is huge. Its Debt / Equity ratio of 1.9%, Current Ratio of 10.5x, and Quick Ratio of 10.3x are outstanding numbers that depict the company’s financial health. It appears to fund itself more through equity than debt, and has more than enough assets to fulfill its obligations.

The company’s Altman Z-Score of 11.9 shows financial health and a very low bankruptcy risk. Ideally a company wants a Z-Score of 3.0 or higher, and no lower than 1.8. The fact that Actinium’s Z-Score is nearly 4 times higher than the ideal amount speaks volumes.

Furthermore, due to its small float, this is a stock that surges on good news. In fact, the stock, since it bottomed in the end of April, has skyrocketed by over 107%, and has seen a massive price tick over the last 6 months.

But don’t just take their financials’ word for it. Analysts are in love with this stock and can’t stop gushing over it.

H.C. Wainwright for example recently initiated a buy rating on the stock.(7) Additionally, according to the Wall Street Journal the stock has a low price target of $25.00, a median price target of $32.50, and a high price target of $65.00.(8) To put that in perspective, the stock is currently trading at only $11.28 a share! With the high price target, this gives the stock a consensus analyst upside of nearly 116.6%. 

Additionally, analysts are forecasting the company’s next quarterly EPS to be -$0.46- a gain of 61.67% from the prior-year quarter.(9)

Analysts are bullish on the company’s interim clinical data on Actimab, and believe that its capital increase in April potentially eliminates the risk of additional shareholder dilution. Furthermore, this increase in capital could even provide enough cash to cover the early stages of commercialization.

Actinium’s Technicals Show Bullish Signals Too

After Actinium’s stock tested a high of approximately $18.83, the stock pulled back to about $7 where it found strong support dating back to early February 2020.

Now at approximately $11.28, the stock appears to have regained momentum, especially with all of the good news hitting the headlines. If more positive news continues to be released, the stock could very well test its prior high of $18.83.

Additionally, the stock is showing strong technical indicators based on its:(10)

  • 20- and 50-day moving average
  • 100 to 200-day moving averages
  • 20-50 day MACD Oscillator
  • 20-200 day MACD Oscillator
  • 50-200 day MACD Oscillator
  • 100-200 day moving average
