The ProSense(R) Activatable Imaging Agent platform was developed to provide in vivo readouts of some of the key protease activities known to underlie disease states in oncology, inflammation, and cardiovascular disease. A pre-clinical version of ProSense is currently being used by leading academic institutions and pharmaceutical customers worldwide to image disease-related in vivo protease profiles in pre-clinical research and drug development. The IND program and the planned Phase I clinical trials are designed to translate the benefits of ProSense into humans, as well as to further develop the multi-channel white light and near infrared fluorescence laparoscopic imaging systems used in collecting and analyzing fused images in real time in the operating room. The planned trial is also designed to gather safety and imaging data for the agent, which will be administered systemically, and to
