Avid Radiopharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Avid”) today announced the presentation of interim data from its landmark florbetapir “Image-to-Autopsy” Phase III study. These data come from the first cohort of subjects in the trial and are the first ever Phase III results for an agent designed to image Alzheimer’s disease pathology. Today, Alzheimer’s disease can only be definitely diagnosed by microscopic detection of beta-amyloid at autopsy. The goal of Avid’s Phase III trial is to test the ability
of florbetapir to image beta-amyloid in living patients.
