QSAM Biosciences (OTCQB: QSAM) is a company developing a new class of drugs called radiopharmaceuticals that deliver radiation therapy directly and specifically to cancer cells. The company’s lead drug candidate, CycloSam(R), is a clinical-stage bone-seeking radiopharmaceutical designed to deliver targeted radiation safely and precisely to tumors in the bone. “QSAM is leading the charge to evaluate a new treatment for bone cancer and other related, underserved diseases. The company’s pioneering efforts are evident as the first patient has completed treatment in the company’s clinical trial designed to study the effect of its proprietary radiopharmaceutical technology: CycloSam(R),” a recent article reads. “This is an important milestone for QSAM,” said the company’s co-founder and CEO Douglas R. Baum. “Successfully treating patients with primary or secondary bone cancer remains an area of significant unmet medical need and a goal for CycloSam(R).”

About QSAM Biosciences Inc.
QSAM Biosciences is developing next-generation nuclear medicines for the treatment of cancer and related diseases. QSAM’s initial technology, CycloSam(R) (Samarium-153 DOTMP), is a clinical-stage bone-targeting radiopharmaceutical developed by IsoTherapeutics Group LLC, pioneers in the nuclear medicine space who also developed the FDA-approved Quadramet(R) (Samarium-153 EDTMP) radiopharmaceutical product, which is indicated for pain palliation. QSAM is led by an experienced executive team and board of directors that have completed numerous FDA approvals and multiple successful biotech exits. CycloSam has demonstrated preliminary safety and efficacy in animal studies and a single patient FDA-cleared human trial performed in 2020 at the Cleveland Clinic. This nuclear technology uses low specific activity Samarium-153 (resulting in far less long-lived europium impurities) and DOTMP, a chelator believed to reduce or eliminate off-target migration and targets sites of high bone turnover, making it, in management’s opinion, an ideal agent to treat primary and secondary bone cancers. Since CycloSam delivers targeted radiation selectively to the skeletal system and to bone tumors, it is also believed to be a great candidate for effectiveness trials in bone marrow ablation as preconditioning for bone marrow transplantation, as well as in procedures to reduce external beam radiation to bone tumors. This multi-patented drug candidate utilizes a radioisotope previously approved by the FDA combined with a novel chelant, DOTMP, that has demonstrated preliminary increased efficacy and decreased side effects in animal models and veterinary treatment of bone cancer in dogs. Further, CycloSam utilizes a streamlined, just-in-time manufacturing process that is already in place. Given these factors, management believes there is a strong pathway to commercialization for CycloSam. For more information, visit the company’s website at https://QSAMBio.com.
