VisEn brings molecular imaging probe to market

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

June 7, 2007 -- Optical imaging developer VisEn Medical of Woburn, MA, has released its MMPSense molecular imaging probe for real-time imaging of matrix metallopreoteinase (MMP) related activities in vivo.

The presence of MMP activity is linked to disease phenomena, including cancer propagation, invasion, and metastsis, as well as cardiovascular disease. Developed from VisEn's proprietary fluorescence imaging probe platforms, MMPSense can image MMP activity in tumors and other sites of inflammation in vivo. The probe emits fluorescence in response to MMP activity.

In May, VisEn and its distribution partner in Asia, Olympus Corporation, launched MMPSense, as well as VisEn's AngioSpark nanoparticle-based and molecular imaging probes, in Japan and other Asian markets.
