Neoprobe nets financing

Gamma camera probe developer Neoprobe of Dublin, OH, has signed a finance agreement, the company reported.

The terms of the agreement state that Neoprobe will receive $13 million from Platinum Montaur Life Sciences of New York City. The first installment is for $7 million in the form of a secured note due December 2011, which Neoprobe will use to repay $5.7 million in notes due January 2009, as well as to retire warrants to purchase shares of Neoprobe common stock associated with the notes.

The remaining $6 million will be disbursed in two parts, and will be used to support the development of Neoprobe's Lymphoseek product, a lymphatic mapping agent labeled with technetium-99m DTPA-mannosyl-dextran and designed to be used with handheld gamma detection devices in sentinel lymph node biopsy procedures.

The first disbursement of $3 million will occur once phase 3 trials for Lymphoseek have started, while the second disbursement will occur once 200 patients have been enrolled in the phase 3 trials.
