Affibody and National Cancer Institute, NIH, to Develop Molecular In Vivo Imaging Agents for Detection of Cancer
BROMMA, Sweden, Nov. 8, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Affibody AB today announced a cooperative agreement with the NCI/NIH on the development of conjugates with Affibody(R) molecules to be used for in vivo imaging of cancers over-expressing HER2.The collaboration is a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Radiation Oncology Branch of the National Cancer Institute and builds on Affibody AB's proprietary Affibody(R) technology and various conjugation systems of the NIH. The molecules under development are expected to be useful for medical imaging monitoring of patients with cancer diseases that over-express the HER2 protein. Affibody will design and develop engineered Affibody(R) molecules specific for HER2, a receptor protein often over-expressed in breast- and ovary cancers, among others. NCI plans to conjugate the engineered Affibody(R) molecules with various detection molecules to evaluate them for non-invasive tumor and metastasis visualization. Medical imaging agents should be highly specific and small, as small size allows for good tissue penetration and rapid clearance from the blood. This renders high contrast images within very short time.
