Description: AV-1451 or [F-18]T807 is a novel tau PET imaging agent, reported to have a high affinity and selectivity to PHF-tau in the brain of Alzheimer's disease patients.
In April 2013, Eli Lilly announced it has acquired two investigational positron emission tomography (PET) tracers from Siemens Medical Solutions USA. The tracers are intended to image tau (or neurofibrillary) tangles in the brain.
Lilly will initially focus on incorporating this new technology into its anti-amyloid and anti-tau research and development (R&D) programs. Lilly also has the option to commercialize the tracers. The tracers will be developed and validated by a team at Avid Radiopharmaceuticals, Lilly's wholly owned subsidiary focused on molecular imaging. Financial terms of the deal are not being disclosed.
Partners: Siemens AG
