QSAM Biosciences (OTCQB: QSAM), a company developing next-generation therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals, including Samarium-153-DOTMP (CycloSam(R)), for the treatment of bone cancer and related diseases, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2022, and provided a corporate update. “Initial, preliminary data from our second patient dosed with CycloSam continues to show positive signals in terms of safety and efficacy. While it is too early for formal conclusions to be made of these results, CycloSam generally performed how we expected it to perform, even given the lowest dosage in our dose-escalating study. This is all very encouraging,” said Douglas R. Baum, CEO and co-founder of QSAM Biosciences. “We expect the pace of our clinical trials to accelerate in the fourth quarter of 2022 and into 2023. This is partly due to the onboarding as a trial site the highly-regarded Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, which is a National Cancer Institute (‘NCI’) – designated Comprehensive Cancer Center that treats a significant population of patients who could potentially qualify for our study. We have also been able to raise equity funding on favorable terms from supportive investors who share our long-term vision for QSAM. Our team continues to work towards creating shareholder value in conjunction with our most important mission to help adult and pediatric patients suffering from bone cancer.”

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 have developed other FDA-approved radiopharmaceutical products. 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 undesirable europium impurity) and DOTMP, a chelator that targets sites of high mineral turnover (bone) and is believed to reduce or eliminate off-target migration 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, it is also believed to be an important candidate for use in bone marrow ablation as pre-conditioning for bone marrow transplantation, and 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 targeting chelant 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 well established. For more information, visit the company’s website at https://QSAMBio.com.
