Johns Hopkins University Key Developments
Progenics Pharmaceuticals Enters into Licensing Agreement with Johns Hopkins
Aug 13 15
Progenics Pharmaceuticals Inc. has entered into an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement with Johns Hopkins University for 18F-DCFPyL, or PyL, a clinical-stage prostate specific membrane antigen, or PSMA, targeted imaging agent for prostate cancer. PyL, when used in conjunction with high-resolution PET imaging, has shown potential for use in identifying prostate cancer and sites of relapse. PyL was developed by a team led by Martin G. Pomper, M.D., Ph.D. at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. An early stage clinical trial of PyL with PET imaging in men with prostate cancer demonstrated uptake of PyL in sites of putative metastatic disease and primary tumors not seen with currently approved imaging techniques, suggesting the potential for high sensitivity and specificity in detecting prostate cancer.
