Morphotek Announces Collaboration Agreement with University of Gothenburg to Develop Farletuzumab

Morphotek Inc. announced that it entered into an agreement with the Targeted Alpha Therapy Group at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden to collaborate on the research and development of farletuzumab as an alpha therapy vector being studied for radioimmunotherapy in ovarian cancer. Farletuzumab is an investigational humanized monoclonal antibody (mAb) that binds to folate receptor alpha, a protein which is highly expressed in ovarian carcinoma but largely absent from normal tissue. In radioimmunotherapy, mAbs are attached to radioisotopes that may potentially deliver highly cytotoxic radiation in a targeted and more direct way to relevant cancer cells. The use of alpha emitters, in contrast to beta emitters, may potentially allow for the killing of only targeted cells binding with the vector due to the short alpha particle track. This collaboration will initially investigate the use of farletuzumab as an alpha therapy vector in preclinical laboratory studies, followed by the overall objective, which is to investigate in clinical trials the safety and efficacy of alpha-radiolabeled farletuzumab in women who enter remission upon completion of first-line treatment.
