BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cerveau Technologies Inc. today announced an agreement with Houston Methodist Hospital to support multiple projects over the next several years. These research projects are for studies of an early stage imaging agent (MK-6240) to be used in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans for assessing the status and progression of neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) in the brain. NFTs made up of aggregated tau protein are a hallmark of several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease.

As part of the agreement, Cerveau will contract with Houston Methodist to manufacture and supply the [18F]MK-6240 needed for the initiatives in the greater Houston area as well as support research initiatives at Houston Methodist.
