Molecular Insight Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Initiates Trial for Zemiva in Detection of Cardiac Ischemia

June 25, 2007 — Molecular Insight Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced today that it has initiated a Phase 2 trial with Zemiva (iodofiltic acid I 123 or BMIPP) for the diagnosis of cardiac ischemia, or lack of sufficient blood supply to an area of the heart, in patients with suspected Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) in the emergency department setting.

Zemiva is a metabolic, molecular imaging pharmaceutical that has previously demonstrated the ability to detect cardiac ischemia up to 30 hours after an ischemic event as compared to currently available techniques, which are limited to an approximate two hour imaging window.

The current trial, which is expected to involve an estimated 600 to 700 patients at up to 70 centers in the United States and Canada, is designed to be a pivotal registration trial that, upon replication in a successive confirmatory Phase 3 trial, could form the basis of an application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for marketing approval. Molecular Insight expects to report top line data from this trial in the second half of 2008.

Targeted MRI Could Pinpoint Aggressive Prostate Cancers Before They Spread

The ZD2-Gd probe, represented by the orange ball and green arrow, binds to the EDB-FN in the prostate cancer cells with high metastatic potential. This results in a strong MRI signal (upper right). Prostate cancer cells with low metastatic potential have no EDB-FN and so there is no MRI signal (lower right). Credit: Han, et al., Bioconjug Chem-Apr-2017
