CHICAGO, June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Angiogenesis is a hallmark of many cancers and a key target in the development of novel therapies. Similarly, angiogenesis is also involved in the inflammatory mechanisms of many chronic diseases. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) represents an imaging methodology of choice to assess [micro-] vascularization and blood perfusion.

At the annual meeting of American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), Image Analysis, the medical expert company, will be presenting a new methodology for quantitative assessment of tumour response based on the changes in vascularisation and blood perfusion, which has been implemented in early phase trials, specifically to address the pseudo-progression challenge and early understanding of the treatment response.

The latest work has shown that the derived pharmacodynamics imaging biomarkers provide a better insight and understanding, as well as evidence and predictive value, of the physiological impact of novel compound in oncology clinical trials.

This new methodology for clinical trial design enables consistent, reliable, and reproducible computation of the quantitative endpoints across different imaging platforms, clinical settings and sites, as well as across various time points.

About ASCO

ASCO, one of the world's largest professional meetings focused on oncology research and treatment. Over 30,000 professionals will join in Chicago to learn more about this year's theme, "The Future of Patient-Centered Care and Research".
