MedTech company Alpha Tau Medical focuses on R&D and commercialization of its breakthrough cancer treatment, Alpha DaRT, originally invented in 2003 by Prof. Itzhak Kelson and Prof. Yona Keisari from Tel Aviv University. Alpha DaRT (Diffusing Alpha-Emitters Radiation Therapy) delivers high-precision alpha radiation, that is released when radioactive substances decay inside the tumor. The short-range alpha particles effectively kill the cancer cells while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue. Early clinical results showed that Alpha DaRT is safe and effective for treating squamous cell carcinoma tumors, with a 100% partial and 70% complete response rate. The company recently received the Sealed Source and Device (SSD) approval and the FDA’s IDE Approval and is collaborating with key cancer physicians and researchers worldwide to investigate the Alpha DaRT as a treatment for various solid tumor indications, including: - Pancreas - Liver - Head and Neck - GYN.
