On June 3rd, researchers at Molecular Insight also presented preclinical data on MIP-1072, a radiolabeled, small molecule molecular imaging pharmaceutical in development for diagnosis and staging of prostate cancer. MIP-1072 is designed to target prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA), a protein found predominantly on prostate tumor cells. The paper, "Molecular Targeting of Prostate Cancer with Small Molecular Inhibitors of Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen," was honored by SNM with the 2007 Berson-Yalow Award for most original scientific abstract.
