Piramal Imaging Highlights New Data for Florbetaben and Other Investigational Radiopharmaceuticals at SNMMI 2013

BERLIN, BOSTON and MUMBAI, India, June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Piramal Imaging announced today that results from four studies evaluating the Company's PET amyloid imaging agent (florbetaben F18*) will be presented at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI 2013) taking place in Vancouver from June 8-12.

Additionally, Andrew Stephens, Vice President of Clinical Research and Development at Piramal Imaging will present an update and highlights on florbetaben PET imaging in clinical trials as part of SNMMI's Emerging Technologies Session on Neurodegenerative Imaging on Monday, June 10 at 12:00 p.m. in the West Building, room 306. Dr. Stephens' presentation will highlight the clinical experience with florbetaben which is based on more than 900 applications at imaging centers across the U.S., Europe, Japan and Australia. The florbetaben development program comprises six phase 1 studies, two global, multicenter phase 2 studies, an MCI study with two year follow-up, and a global, multicenter histopathology phase 3 study.

"This year's annual meeting marks an important time as we look to commercialize florbetaben," said Dr. Stephens. "Our clinical presentations at SNMMI further highlight Piramal Imaging's commitment to advance the early detection of Alzheimer's disease as well as our research to develop investigational radiopharmaceuticals to address major clinical needs in oncology, specifically prostate cancer."

Florbetaben is currently being reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) for use in the visual detection of beta-amyloid in the brains of adults with cognitive impairment who are being evaluated for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other causes of cognitive decline. Presentations highlighting Florbetaben and the Company's pipeline compounds include:
