About CD8 ImmunoPET
The 89Zr CD8 ImmunoPET technology (zirconium Zr 89 crefmirlimab berdoxam) is a [89Zr]-labelled minibody that binds the CD8 receptor on human T cells and is used for quantitative, non-invasive PET imaging of CD8+ cells in patients. CD8+ cells are the main effector cells involved in the immune response against tumor cells induced by immunotherapies and they also play a key role in multiple autoimmune diseases. As such, quantitative imaging of CD8+ cells can be used to diagnose the immune status of a patient, to measure the efficacy of immunotherapies and predict patient outcomes.
PharmaLogic Holdings Corp., founded in 1993, is an innovative and reliable supplier of radiopharmaceuticals. With over 900 employees currently operating 39 facilities, PharmaLogic is the fastest growing radiopharmaceutical manufacturer in North America. PharmaLogic is privately held and backed by Webster Equity Partners and MedEquity Capital.
