A Phase I, Multi-Center, Open-Label, Dosimetry Study of I-131-CLR1404 in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Advanced Solid Tumors Who Have Failed Standard Therapy or for Whom No Standard Therapy Exists

I-131-CLR1404 is a small-molecule, phospholipid ether analog that combines lipid-like
properties with a cancer therapeutic beta-emitting radioisotope. Cellectar believes that
this compound will benefit individuals with cancer due to its selective retention and
accumulation in malignant cells versus nonmalignant cells. Preclinical experiments have
demonstrated that I-131-CLR1404 significantly slows malignant tumor growth in several mouse
tumor models.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Relapsed or refractory advanced solid tumor(s) and have exhausted standard treatment
options or no standard therapy exists

- Must have a sufficient window of time to complete the washout period, dosimetry data
acquisition and the follow up safety assessment period

- 18 years or older

- Must be compliant with the protocol and be within geographical proximity to make the
required study visits

- Have the ability to read, understand and provide written informed consent

- Patients with brain metastasis are acceptable if the clinical condition has been
stable for at least one month

- Female patients of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test
within 24 hours of start of treatment

- Must agree to use an effective method of contraception during the study and for 90
days following the last dose of study drug

treatment, and/or biological treatment for cancer including immunotherapy while on
