Polarean Imaging (LON:POLX) 17.5p £13.33m
The Company announced that it has entered into a licencing agreement with Duke University for patents related to an entirely new use for hyperpolarised gas imaging in the field of pulmonary vascular disease ('PVD'). This opens the potential for Polarean to address an additional unmet medical need in diagnosis and monitoring of cardiopulmonary conditions.
Duke University has recently patented a method of using hyperpolarised gas MRI in a novel, non-invasive manner to quantify pulmonary vascular pressure, potentially eliminating the need for the costly and invasive catheterisation required to confirm PVD and monitor its progression.
The licencing agreement with Duke University grants Polarean exclusive rights to the technology, and the Company will work with Duke to drive this new technology towards clinical use and regulatory approval. This license further strengthens the previous licensing of Duke's 3D gas exchange imaging technology to provide a complete diagnostic suite that addresses a critical unmet need in the care of patients with PVD.
