By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

January 26, 2021 -- Fuzionaire Radioisotope Technologies (FRIT) and radiopharmaceutical firm Nihon Medi-Physics (NMP) are teaming up in a bid to create a new class of PET radiopharmaceuticals.

NMP, a joint venture between Sumitomo Chemical Company and GE Healthcare, will assess the ability of Fuzionaire's F-18 radiolabeling platform in a feasibility study. Fuzionaire aims to apply its technology to create new radiopharmaceuticals that can aid in predicting and measuring patient response to cancer immunotherapy treatments, according to the companies.

Formed in 2019 as a joint venture of Fuzionaire Diagnostics and Japan Medical Isotope Technology Development, FRIT is working to develop and commercialize Fuzionare Dx's radiopharmaceutical technologies in Japan.
