Cerveau Technologies Inc. Signs Agreement with Roche to Provide Novel Tau Imaging Biomarker for Disease Modifier Research

Friday, March 11, 2022

Cerveau Technologies, Inc. today announced a research collaboration agreement with Roche Products Limited (Roche), on the use of Cerveau’s [F-18]MK-6240, an investigational imaging agent, in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans to assess the status and progression of neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) in the brain. NFTs made up of aggregated tau protein are a hallmark of several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease.

The collaboration is focused on using [F-18]MK-6240 as a biomarker in Roche’s neurodegenerative disease research and development of investigational medicines. The Companies will apply [F-18]MK-6240 imaging to evaluate Roche’s investigational therapeutics for potential treatment of neurodegenerative diseases in humans.

“Cerveau is focused on enabling acceleration of technologies that have the potential to advance the fight against debilitating neurodegenerative diseases,” said Rick Hiatt, Chief Executive Officer, Cerveau Technologies, Inc. “We are excited to add Roche to our growing network of pharmaceutical partners and global validated production sites. Our goal is to expand the availability of this novel investigational imaging agent to the broader scientific community.”
