ADA Medical Launches Pre-Clinical Imaging Services

February 20, 2014

ADA Medical announced its collaboration with Ephoran Multi- Imaging Solutions srl. Building on Ephoran's technology, ADA Medical is expanding into the pre-clinical research space.

In a release, the company noted that ADA Medical can now provide research and quality assured based pre-clinical contract services focused on inflammatory, oncology and cardiovascular diseases.

This new molecular imaging CRO service based near Turin in Bioindustry Park Silvano Fumero, Italy, will conduct pre-clinical drug development modeling and assessments using technology. ADA Medical's existing project management, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, biostatistics, data management and regulatory/ quality assurance capabilities will bring needed GLP, pre-clinical management and quality oversight to create the discipline needed for drug research and support of drug research submissions.

"Ephoran's molecular imaging expertise will bring a much needed new technology to the market to assist drug and biotech companies in expediting cost effective development of new compounds to clinical trials." noted Renzo DiCarlo, CEO of ADA Medical.

Ephoran is a reference centre for a number of imaging technologies. This expansion into drug development applications fills a void in the pre-clinical drug imaging sector, namely new product verification prior to filling an Investigational New Drug Application (INDA). "We are excited to see our technology be a part of ADA Medical's medical research family. Imaging technology provides significant biological data that will be used to verify the efficacy of a drug compound and make the drug development process much more effective and quicker" said Vito Lorusso, Vice-President, Ephoran.

ADA Medical is a Research Partnership Group of research professionals dedicated to the successful implementation and completion of clinical research projects for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries.

Ephoran Multi-Imaging Solutions is a Contract Research Organization providing imaging expertise and knowledge to study, develop and promote the application of imaging technologies in preclinical drug research and development.
