[18F]FNDP for PET Imaging of Soluble Epoxide Hydrolase (sEH)

Case ID:
C13981
Disclosure Date:
1/25/2016
Description:
Unmet Need
Soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) inhibitors have been shown to effectively increase the levels of epoxyeicosatrienoic acids and reduce the levels of dihydroxyeicosatrienoic acids, which may be translated to therapeutic potentials for multiple disease indications. sEH inhibitors show great promise for the treatment of  hypertension, diabetes, stroke, dyslipidemia, pain, immunological disorders, eye diseases, neurological diseases and other indications.  sEH imaging could prove useful for drug development and patient selection strategies.

Technology Overview
The technology provides a sensitive, highly specific and easy to synthesize PET imaging agent for sEH.

Stage of Development 
Proof of concept, including PET imaging and biodistribution data, in murine and non-human primate models.
