PHILADELPHIA -- The radioimaging
agent 18F-florbetaben reliably excluded amyloid pathology in a study of 74 end-of-life patients with dementia.
was suggestive of a mass in both parapharyngeal spaces; the lesion was more prominent on the left side.
Not surprisingly, lungs of healthy individuals display no uptake of folate-targeted radioimaging
agents, whereas lungs of many cancer patients display localized uptake at sites of malignant disease.
The primary diagnosis of extracranial meningioma is difficult even on advanced radioimaging
techniques like CT and MRI .
application used for body scans is expected to enter clinical trials this fall, and an optical imaging application used to measure prostate cancer cells in blood samples is already in clinical trials.
Thromboview is a blood clot radioimaging
antibody reagent, which uses radiolabelled antibodies to locate blood clots in the body.
BLSI's products in development include: Altropane, a radioimaging
agent for the diagnosis of PD and ADHD; Troponin I, a naturally-occurring anti-angiogenesis factor for the treatment of solid tumors; AF-1 and Inosine, nerve growth factors for the treatment of acute and chronic CNS disorders; fusion toxins for the treatment of cancer and multiple sclerosis; novel therapies for the treatment of PD and ADHD; and transcription factors that may control the expression of molecules associated with autoimmune disease and allergies.
