Manhattan Isotope Technology Receives Drug Master File Acknowledgment Letter From FDA


10/9/2012 10:28:31 AM

LUBBOCK, Texas, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Positron Corporation, (OTCBB:POSC) a molecular imaging healthcare company, announces that their subsidiary, Manhattan Isotope Technology, LLC, has received an acknowledgment letter and Drug Master File (DMF) number assignment, from the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA), for its Strontium-82 Drug Substance.

Manhattan Isotope Technology (MIT) has received acknowledgment from the FDA for its Strontium-82 Drug Substance submission and has been assigned DMF #26411. MIT is now permitted to submit Letters of Authorization (LOA) with companies supplying Sr-82/Rb-82 generators. The LOA requests MIT's DMF information be referenced in support of the holders aNDA/NDA applications. This acknowledgment is a requirement which enables the FDA to review information in the DMF with respect to these applications.

For over two decades, Rubidium-82 generators using the parent isotope Strontium-82, have proven to be the radiopharmaceutical of choice in myocardial perfusion imaging with Positron Emission Tomography (PET).

"We are very pleased to have achieved this significant milestone. Assignment of our DMF by the FDA, positions Positron alongside the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and Nordion as DMF holders for Sr-82 Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API). MIT is now able to supply drug manufacturers Sr-82 for qualification in their Sr-82/Rb-82 generators. This signifies our Company's official entry into the business of radiopharmaceutical production, the foundation of Positron's end-to-end solution for the cardiac PET industry," stated Jason Kitten, President of MIT.

About Positron: Positron Corporation is a molecular imaging healthcare company vertically integrating all the segments of nuclear cardiologyproviding an end-to-end solution for cardiac PET. Through proprietary PET imaging systems, radiopharmaceuticals and radioisotopes solutions, Positron enables healthcare providers to more accurately diagnose disease and improve patient outcomes, while practicing cost effective medicine. Positron's unique products, market position and approach in securing the supply chain are substantial advantages, further accelerating the adoption of cardiac PET and growth of nuclear cardiology.
