property remains a priority.
provisional patent on the chiller and related equipment expires on 12/30/23 so we authorized Indiano Law Group to file for a utility
patent based on the chiller, but including the combined shipping pig/vial holder and syringe shield. Chances are good that the patent
office will force us to split in early 2025. At that time, we can prosecute the two or three applications serially.
received notification that Patent Number 2023/0263913 A1 Radiotherapy Gel and Method of Preparing the Same was published on 8/24/23.
authorized our patent attorneys to file (nationalize) our hydrogel patent in each PCT country in February for Application: RADIOTHERAPY
GEL AND METHOD OF PREPARING THE SAME - International Application No. PCT/US2022/43274.This will cover more than ten patent offices
that collectively cover 63 countries throughout the world.
filed for a trademark on the term “Precision Radionuclide Therapy” so we can now use the TM mark.
have created a robust Quality Management System. This includes documents, GLP validations, and GLP test plans and reports. This is necessary
to prepare for FDA audits that occur when we initiate human clinic studies.
is our primary manufacturing contractor for our hydrogel and particle components, but from a risk mitigation perspective we are to establishing
an additional supplier. For almost two years we have been working with Jay Simon, the GM for North America, for Eckert & Ziegler
to be our alternate. They engaged in detailed discussions of our proprietary procedures and have visited our production site, and we
are confident a supply agreement can be established.
finalized and patented our support equipment from shipping to therapy. We are currently focusing on developing an inventory of each item.
are continuously striving to reduce the production cost of IsoPet to enhance our potential profitability and to make it more affordable
to the typical pet parent. This requires paying close attention to every production step and standardization, setting the stage for possible
Cost Reduction and Optimization
enhanced the polymer production process by eliminating a carbon filtering step. We also ran a dozen production runs to scale up the
polymer production volume and to understand and reduce variables for reproducibility. All changes were supported by validation testing.
parallel, we were analyzing the PET data from the VX2 animal testing to determine if we can enhance the IsoPet characteristics while
remaining within specifications. We increased the standard polymer concentration in IsoPet hydrogel. The improved product has a lower
gelation initiation temperature and greater strength to help lock in the phosphate particles.
working with the Eckert & Ziegler senior management team in the US we will now obtain the Y-90 from their Wilmington MA plant
to reduce shipping costs. The new Y-90 price will result in an approximate $1,000 decrease per therapy. Germany will remain as an
alternate source of Y-90.
this year we intend to demonstrate our enhanced production flow and perform verification testing to qualify the new source of Y-90
as required by our quality management system.
to pet parents, clinic owners, veterinarians, and oncologists is complex. Aside from utilizing advertisements in key journals and the
social media, the following activities are important:
new small animal and equine clinics that are reasonably close for pet parents to access.
quarter we certified a new small animal clinic, Indian Creek Veterinary Hospital in Fort Wayne IN, and two new equine clinics, Myhre
Equine Clinic in Rochester NH and Hopkinton Animal Hospital in Weare NH.
are currently in contact with several other clinics.

animal studies that result in publications in key journals.
quarter we will complete the VX2 tumor injection at Johns Hopkins Veterinary Clinical Trial Network within the approved IUCUC protocol.
This will result in two publications.
year we intend to follow-up with a new small animal study at JHU and an equine study at a university located near “equine territory.”
term we will conduct other studies using mice models to support future indications for use, such as lung cancer.
quarter Dr. Bill Bradly, owner of the New England Equine Practice, will conduct an experiment to determine if IsoPet is effective
in treating caudal heel pain syndrome, sometimes called navicular syndrome. This is a complex syndrome, but if IsoPet is effective,
this is a new and large market.
of the IDE - (Q211938/S001)
next IDE application will be an amendment to the previous submittal. We are systematically preparing the answers to the 60 previous
FDA comments. And as we near completion we felt it was worth the investment to redo a few studies to ensure that the FDA comments
are fully addressed. This includes the polymer and hydrogel shelf-lives, the effect of radiation on the hydrogel, and the effect
of polymer freeze-thaw cycles on the hydrogel properties. These tests will be completed next quarter. Important content is the VX2
Tumor Animal Study report and executing the Genotox protocol.
Animal Study - Dr. Rebecca Krimins has treated 12 rabbits. Next quarter she will treat the last nine rabbits, submit the data
to Pearl Pathways for independent review, and write the report.
– Based on the FDA recommendation on September 29th we participated in the Pre-Sub meeting to discuss the Genotoxicty
Chemical Characterization Protocol. We now feel sufficiently confident to initiate the genotox testing next month.
Clinic Protocol and Institutional Review Board
receiving FDA approval to conduct clinical trials we need formal approval from the Mayo Clinic IRB. In anticipation of this step and
to help expedite the proccess we have submitted the Clinical Trial Protocol to their “gatekeeper” for comments. We have also
been conducting certification training for Dr. Paz Fumagalli. Next quarter we are planning to complete the final training certification
step using high activity RadioGel in a full-dress rehearsal operating theater.
