QSAM Biosciences (OTCQB: QSAM) is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing and bringing to market targeted therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals and advancing the fight against cancer, including the underserved pediatric population. “With the overall incidence of childhood cancer on the rise, the work of QSAM is becoming increasingly important… According to Children’s Cancer Cause, in 2022, an estimated 10,470 children (from birth to 14 years) and 5,480 adolescents (aged 15 to 19 years) will be diagnosed with cancer. ‘It is estimated that there will be 13.7 million cases of childhood cancer between 2020-2050. Unless there are major improvements in diagnosis and treatments, of this, 45% will go undiagnosed and 11.1 million will die if no further investments in interventions are made. The vast majority, almost 85%, will be concentrated in developing countries.’ The group went on to note that cancer in children and young adults is different from cancer that develops in adults,” a recent article reads. “QSAM Biosciences is working to make a difference in this space, as well as in the adult cancer sector. The company is developing ‘targeted therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals as safer and more efficacious alternatives to current treatment modalities to address large unmet medical needs and underserved patient populations.’ With that in mind, QSAM is focused on creating a pipeline of novel radiotherapeutics to serve multiple indications.”

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.
