About CD8 ImmunoPET
CD8 ImmunoPET is a 89Zr-labelled minibody that has been designed to bind to the CD8 receptor on human T cells for quantitative, non-invasive PET imaging of CD8+ T cells. CD8+ T cells are the main effector cells involved in the immune response against tumour cells induced by immunotherapies and they also play a key role in multiple autoimmune diseases. As such, quantitative imaging of CD8+ T cells is currently being researched to determine whether it may be used to diagnose the immune status of a patient, to measure the efficacy of immunotherapies and predict patient outcomes.
As a leading radiopharmaceutical manufacturer in Australia and New Zealand, Cyclotek’s mission is to improve patient outcomes with accessible targeted radiopharmaceuticals. Its novel PET-tracers provide patient-specific insights into their disease state, providing earlier diagnosis, more accurate assessment of disease extent and improved treatment planning and monitoring. Cyclotek offers a range of radiopharmaceutical products in oncology and neurology bringing patient-centred diagnostics to life. With long-standing pharmaceutical company engagements, Cyclotek has a strong history of undertaking product development and technology transfers to support clinical trials and investigator sponsored studies. The Company seeks to advance therapeutic discovery, further refine diagnostic pathways and drive higher standards in personalised medicine. Please visit https://www.cyclotek.com.
