Imaging Biometrics announce agreement to develop a diagnostic tool for liver surface nodularity.
Imaging Biometrics®, LLC (“IB”), a subsidiary of Flying Brands Limited (LON:FBDU), announces today that it has been awarded a development contract by the Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama (“UAB”) to develop a product to quantify liver surface nodularity (“LSN”) – a biomarker derived from routine computed tomographic (“CT”) images, which allows prediction of cirrhosis decompensation and death. UAB will pay IB a fee to develop the software plus an additional fee for regulatory services.
In a paper published in “Radiology” in November 2016, the study’s authors concluded that the LSN score derived from routine CT images allows prediction of cirrhosis decompensation and death. IB is seeking to translate these findings into a commercially robust software product that will streamline this process, and that will quickly and efficiently determine how well patients are responding to treatment. The agreement also includes preparing and submitting an application to the US FDA for obtaining regulatory market clearance.
Imaging Biometrics’ CEO, David Smith said, “We believe this agreement could generate significant revenues for Imaging Biometrics. UAB’s decision to enlist Imaging Biometrics as a development partner underscores their confidence in Imaging Biometrics’ proven track record of commercialising advanced imaging technologies into routine clinical applications. We are excited about this opportunity and look forward to the possibility of entering into future agreements with UAB.”
