GE Healthcare, a unit of diversified conglomerate General Electric Co. (GE: Quote), Wednesday released results from four pooled brain biopsy studies and results from a brain autopsy study of the investigational PET amyloid imaging agent, flutemetamol.
The results revealed that both biopsy and autopsy study images had high sensitivity and specificity, and that strong concordance exists between flutemetamol PET images and Alzheimer's disease-associated beta amyloid brain pathology.
The data confirm the potential of flutemetamol as an imaging agent to detect beta amyloid plaque, a pathology associated with Alzheimer's disease in living patients.
