Cellectar Biosciences is working on testing a radiosensitive therapy in blood cancers including multiple myeloma. Their product, CLR 131, targets the myeloma tumors by delivering a cytotoxic radioisotope, iodine-131 directly to the tumor cells. Phase I study results showed an overall mean survival rate of 26.2 months for relapsed/refractory myeloma patients (who had received on average 5.8 prior lines of therapy). The drug was given as a one or two-dose treatment as a single agent, given during a 30-minute infusion. These results are promising when compared to recently FDA-approved myeloma treatments. 

A Phase II study is now open using CLR 131 and dexamethasone for blood cancer patients including: multiple myeloma (MM), indolent chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma (LPL), marginal zone lymphoma (MZL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) who have been previously treated with standard therapy for their underlying malignancy.
