About Alpha Tau Medical, Ltd.

Founded in 2016, Alpha Tau Medical Ltd, is an Israeli oncology therapy company focused on the research, development and commercialization of Alpha DaRT ™ technology for the treatment of solid tumors.

Alpha DaRT ™ (Diffusing Alpha-Emitters Radiation Therapy) is an innovative technology that enables the unique highly potent and conformal alpha irradiation of solid tumors. The treatment is administered by intratumoral insertion of Radium-224, which allows the release and diffusion of alpha emitting radioisotopes, releasing alpha particles that can destroy the tumor. Since alpha emitting atoms only diffuse a short distance, Alpha DaRT primarily affects the tumor and may spare the healthy tissue around it.
