Pinnacle Biologics and INTERmedic Medical Devices announce strategic manufacturing and distribution agreement for cancer laser technology
Date:6/26/2012

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinnacle Biologics, Inc., a bio-pharmaceutical technology company developing and manufacturing novel therapies for oncology and rare diseases and European-based INTERmedic, a medical laser and light technology company, announced a global manufacturing and distribution agreement of INTERmedic's latest photodynamic therapy (PDT) laser for exclusive use with Pinnacle's PHOTOFRIN ® (porfimer sodium) for injection. 

PDT is a two-step process, which uses a photosensitizing drug activated inside the body by laser light to kill cells. The agreement creates a customized PDT application combining PHOTOFRIN, a photoactivated agent, with INTERmedic's newest endoscopic laser delivery device. The device is already approved in Europe. Pinnacle anticipates registration in the United States and other global markets within the next 12-18 months.

"PDT is an impactful, yet under utilized treatment strategy," said Guillermo Herrera, Pinnacle Executive Chairman and CEO. "Pinnacle's goal is to support worldwide development of PDT with PHOTOFRIN in a way that elevates awareness and use among physicians and alerts patients to this cancer treatment option."

Pinnacle acquired PHOTOFRIN in March 2011 with the goal of solidifying its corporate presence and global leadership in the photodynamic therapy field by normalizing product supply, expanding availability and education among current customers, and targeting areas of unmet medical need as new indications for use of PDT.

Pinnacle is working with regulators, top academic institutions and opinion leaders to accelerate product development in areas where the product has shown evidence of safety and efficacy for the benefit of patients affected by rare and devastating diseases.

"PDT for cancer is an advanced therapeutic approach that needs to be expanded and further developed," said Patrick Ross, MD, Ph.D., professor of clinical surgery an
