Award* of three Phase II projects sponsored by two major American biotech companies specializing in oncology
MEDIAN Technologies (ALMDT.PA), a leading medical imaging solutions and service provider for image interpretation and management in oncology clinical trials, cancer screening programs and routine practice in oncology, announced today that it has been selected to provide imaging solutions and services for three new clinical studies in oncology. Taken together, these three new projects total approximately €2.76M. These three studies are sponsored by two biotech companies specializing in oncology and immuno-oncology:
- A phase II study (non-small cell lung cancer – NSCLC) for a total of €1.08M
- A phase II study (colorectal cancer) for a total of €1.44M
- A phase II study (pancreatic adenocarcinoma) for a total of €248K.
Based on the West Coast of the United States, both of these companies are new clients for MEDIAN Technologies.
“The rise of biotech companies, primarily in the field of immuno-oncology, is a major driving force for MEDIAN Technologies’ development in the clinical trial market,” Jérôme Windsor, VP Business Development Pharma explains. “The highly innovative nature of our imaging offer is very attractive for biotech companies. This is why, since we signed our first contract with a biotech company in December 2013, we have been winning more and more projects with the players in this market segment.”
As a reminder, on March 3, 2015 MEDIAN had announced project awards for a total of €1.53M. As of April 9, 2015, project awards and new signed contracts have reached €4.29M, compared to the €1.8M of orders received in the 1st quarter of 2014.
