ImmunoVaccine Technologies Collaborates with NRC Institute for Biodiagnostics Atlantic to measure effectiveness of DepoVax(TM) with novel MRI Imagin
Date:5/20/2009

HALIFAX, May 20 /PRNewswire/ - ImmunoVaccine Technologies Inc. (IVT), a vaccine development company, has announced a collaboration agreement with the National Research Council Institute for Biodiagnostics (NRC-IBD) Atlantic. This collaboration will develop new 3-D MRI technology to track the effect of IVT's DepoVax(TM) technology on reducing tumour growth.

"This research has the potential to deliver extremely sensitive MRI analysis, down to the individual cell level, and we will see, for the first time, our DepoVax(TM) formulation in action," remarked Dr. Marc Mansour, vice president R&D at IVT.

In pre-clinical studies, IVT has shown that DepoVax(TM) vaccines can eradicate cancerous tumors. This new research involves labeling liposomes, suspended in the DepoVax(TM) formulation, with iron-oxide nanoparticles. The 3-D MRI analysis will shed light on the activity of DepoVax(TM) in vivo, and allow the monitoring of tumor elimination in real time.

Current MRI techniques are well established in biomedical research. This research aims at developing highly sensitive and quantitative techniques for monitoring tumor progression and vaccine clearance in vivo.

"This collaboration means that NRC-IBD Atlantic will break new ground in developing novel MRI imaging techniques that will vastly improve the quality of information that may be acquired non-invasively," continued Mansour.
