PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Guerbet, a global leader in medical imaging with more than 30 years of experience in MRI, announced today the first production batch has been manufactured and released for Elucirem™ (gadopiclenol) injection following FDA approval on September 21, 2022, after priority review.4 This next generation GBCA from Guerbet, highly stable macrocyclic gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA), has the highest relaxivity in its class for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and is indicated for use in adults and children aged 2 years and older.1,5

"We are in the process of distributing the first batch of Elucirem™ to our partners and are eager to get this digital imaging innovation in the hands of physicians across the county," said Jared Houk, Commercial Vice President, North America at Guerbet. "Releasing the first batch from our production facility in North Carolina is an important moment for everyone at Guerbet and we are proud to see the hard work and dedication come to fruition."

Elucirem™ (Gadopiclenol) injection is used to detect and visualize lesions with abnormal vascularity in the central nervous system (brain, spine, and associated tissues) and the body (head and neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and musculoskeletal system).1

New Fully Configured 80-slice CT in 2 weeks with Software Upgrades for Life

For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.

GBCAs improve the contrast between lesions and surrounding tissues by accelerating the relaxation of protons thanks to interaction with gadolinium atoms. Gadopiclenol, the active drug substance of Elucirem™, has been designed to enable twice as much interaction, resulting in the highest relaxivity among all non-specific GBCAs.5 This allows use at half the conventional gadolinium dose to reveal high quality images.

Elucirem is manufactured by Liebel-Flarsheim™ Company LLC, a Guerbet Group company, in Raleigh, North Carolina and is now available for order.
