Canadian Nuclear Laboratories : Canadian Nuclear Laboratories and TRIUMF to Host 11th Targeted-Alpha-Therapy Symposium

Dela

Canada's national nuclear laboratory and leading particle accelerator centre partner to host global forum on targeted radiopharmaceutical therapy

CHALK RIVER, Ontario and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), Canada's premier nuclear science and technology organization, and TRIUMF, one of the world's leading particle accelerator centres, jointly announced today that they are partnering to co-host the 11th Targeted-Alpha-Therapy Symposium (TAT11) to be held from April 1 - 5, 2019 at the Fairmont Château Laurier in Ottawa.

TAT11 is a global forum for academic and industry leaders to meet and discuss the latest technical, regulatory and clinical developments in targeted radiopharmaceutical therapy. The potential benefits of targeted-alpha-therapy in the battle against cancer and other diseases are significant. While existing radiation treatments target all cells in the vicinity of a tumor, both healthy and cancerous, targeted-alpha-therapy focuses the treatment application to cancerous or unhealthy cells. This limits the overall radiation dose a patient may receive, holds promise of better patient outcomes, and encourages a faster recovery time following treatment.

In addition to a variety of industry and academic speakers and presentations, the TAT11 conference will feature an exhibition for companies to showcase their products and services, and will include a tour of the Chalk River Laboratories.

"Targeted-alpha-therapy is one of the most promising areas of nuclear medicine, and could represent a leap forward in radiation therapy," commented Kathy McCarthy, Lab Director, CNL. "Given CNL's history as a world-leader in the development and delivery of medical isotope technology, hosting this important international conference alongside TRIUMF, a leader in subatomic physics, was a natural fit. We look forward to welcoming participants from around the globe to discuss this exciting medical technology."

As part of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited's (AECL) Federal Nuclear S&T Work Plan, CNL is conducting research to evaluate alpha therapy delivery methods. This includes the construction of a small alpha radioisotope generator to provide isotopes for CNL and its collaborators. CNL is also taking the necessary steps to grow and expand its resources and capabilities to pursue related research projects, including work alongside TRIUMF.

"Canada has an existing and powerful particle accelerator infrastructure capable of enabling a greater supply of targeted-alpha-therapy isotopes," explains Paul Schaffer, TRIUMF Associate Lab Director - Life Sciences Division. "It's very fitting to be hosting the next conference here and I am looking forward to both learning from others and advocating for what Canada can contribute to this exciting field.

"TRIUMF has established the feasibility of producing important targeted-alpha-therapy isotopes such as Ac - 225 using its 500 MeV cyclotron; and is also in the process of upgrading its infrastructure to improve safety and reliability of large-scale, accelerator-based isotope production," explains Schaffer.

"Both CNL and TRIUMF are committed to improving the health of Canadians through nuclear medicine, and TAT11 is an important medium to foster international partnerships and collaborations that are necessary to advance this therapy," added Corey McDaniel, Vice-President, Business Development with CNL. "It is our hope that this forum will build awareness around alpha therapy and spur further research to accelerate the development of these isotopes."
