Imavita, partner in Pi-R2 project / Radio-fluorination platform

IMAVITA / Preclinical Imaging efficacy CRO

IMAVITA S.A.S., an innovating technology company providing services in preclinical models of human pathologies associated with imaging and image analysis, announces its participation in the collaborative project Pi-R2 / Innovative Technical Radiofluorination Platform for Radiochemistry and Radiopharmacy of Fluor-18.

This 3-year project will focus on the fields of oncology, cardiovascular and neurology, for which 4 work teams have been created:

  • Synthesis, purification and structural analysis of radiolabelling precursors with Fluor 18 and development of various syntheses of radio-fluorinated molecules,
  • Production of radiolabelled molecules for injection in pre-clinical models,
  • Development and implementation of animal pathological models, PET/CT imaging and quantitative analysis of imaging data for therapeutic targeting validation,
  • Production in pharmaceutical quality and use of radiolabelled products in clinical trials

IMAVITA will actively participate in this project by providing technical and scientific expertise and relevant preclinical models of cancer, atherosclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease.

This project will allow IMAVITA to develop new animal models, access custom and innovative radio tagging skills, explore existing preclinical models in PET/CT imaging and develop new translational services in preclinical and clinical imaging.

Imavita, partenaire du projet PiR2

IMAVITA S.A.S., société de services et d’innovation dans les modèles précliniques de pathologies humaines associées à l’imagerie et l’analyse d’images, annonce sa participation au projet collaboratif PiR2 / Plateau Technique innovant de Radiochimie et de Radiopharmacie du Fluor-18.

Ce projet de 3 ans sera axé dans les domaines de l’oncologie, cardio-vasculaire et neurologie et pour lesquels 4 équipes de travail ont été créées :

 1/ Synthèse, purification et analyse structurale de précurseurs de radio-marquage avec le Fluor 18 et mise au point des diverses synthèses de molécules radio-fluorées,

 2/ Production des molécules radio-marquées pour injection dans des modèles pré-cliniques,

 3/ Développement et mise en place des modèles animaux pathologiques, imagerie PET/CT et analyse quantitative des données d’imagerie pour validation du ciblage thérapeutique,

4/ Production en qualité pharmaceutique et utilisation des productions de produits radio-marqués dans le cadre d’essais cliniques

La société IMAVITA participera activement à ce projet par la mise à disposition de compétences techniques et scientifiques et la fourniture de modèles précliniques pertinents de cancer, d’athérosclérose et de maladie d’Alzheimer.

Ce projet permettra à IMAVITA le développement de nouveaux modèles animaux, l’accès à des compétences de radio-marquage à façon et innovants, l’exploration en imagerie PET/CT de modèles précliniques existants et de nouveaux services translationnels en imagerie préclinique et clinique.

Release of in vivo OCT imaging in preclinical models

Imavita released the use of OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) for in vivo imaging in the following applications:

This imaging technique is available for in vivo (isofluran anesthesia) and/or ex vivo imaging and permits to accelerate evaluation of efficacy of compounds during course of projects or on sample collection.

Image example (atopic dermatitis model / ear):

Imavita OCT imaging

Imavita developed a quantification algorithm to permit measurement of epidermis thickness immediatley after image capture. Correlation and validation of this imaging biomarker was fully performed in comparison to histology.

Release of in vivo OCT imaging in preclinical models was performed on November 2018.

Innovating imaging of dermatology models

Imavita is proud to announce the acquisition of new Optical Coherence Tomography apparatus to develop Innovating imaging of dermatology models.

Since september 2017, Imavita is working on this innovative imaging system (OQ Labscope / Lumedica) which will permit to generate non-invasive, surface tissue quantitative data for pre-clinical models in place at Imavita in Applications of interest, principally in the area of dermatology.OCT preclinical model Imavita

The benefits of this in vivo imaging modality are:

  • Easily and efficiently obtain calibrated quantitative data in preclinical models
  • Deepen understanding of disease mechanisms, disease progression and therapeutic responses
  • Manage costs and capture time course data by avoiding sacrifice of animal models
