The influence of generator eluate on the radiochemical purity of [sup.99][Tc.sup.m]-sestamibi prepared using fractionated Cardiolite
In February 2012, Lantheus entered into a manufacturing and supply agreement with JHS for DEFINITY, as well as the manufacture and supply of Cardiolite
and Neurolite, which are also manufactured by Ben Venue.
The patient received a Cardiolite
(technetium Tc99m sestamibi) exam that was negative for ischemia, but showed an area of increased activity in the left breast.
During that time, I talked my way into three stress tests, more than a dozen different blood work-ups; a Cardiolite
scan in which they injected a radioactive isotope into my blood stream and then did a magnetic imaging of my heart and arteries; and finally, the Cadillac of cardiac diagnostic tests--an angiogram.
stress test and an abnormal electrocardiogram suggested that an area of the patient's heart was not getting enough blood.

Among her successes: a bladder cancer detection product for Matritech, a hip replacement compound for Zimmer and a Bristol-Myers Squibb medical imaging product called Cardiolite
, which has generated more than $20 million in royalties for joint sponsors MIT and Harvard.
The study was supported, in part, by Fujisawa, which markets a formulation of adenosine (Adenoscan), and by Bristol-Myers Squibb, which markets technetium Tc99m sestamibi (Cardiolite

With this acquisition, Bristol-Myers Squibb gains several important in-line products, including Sustiva [TM] (efavirenz), the leading non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor for the treatment of HIV/AIDS; Coumadin [R] (warfarin sodium tablets, USP), a widely used oral blood anticoagulant; and Cardiolite
[R], a leading cardiovascular medical imaging agent.

(DuPont Pharmaceuticals, Wilmington, Del), readily collects in viable myocardial cells.
