Medimaps Group Announces Partnership With OsteoSys to Bring Trabecular Bone Score to Korea’s Leading Bone Densitometry Platform
MEDIMAPS GROUP (www.medimapsgroup.com), a Swiss/Global med-tech company specializing in image processing software for assessing bone health, today announced that its novel method for enhancing osteoporotic fracture risk assessment, Trabecular Bone Score (TBS iNsight™), a surrogate of bone microarchitecture boosted by AI, is now available on diagnostic platforms from OsteoSys Co., Ltd. OsteoSys is the leading Bone Mineral Densitometer brand in Korea and the third largest supplier of DXA scanning equipment worldwide.
TBS iNsight™ is available on OsteoSys’ Primus Whole Body DXA, their high-end DXA scanning product. The agreement expands worldwide access to Medimaps’ technology to clinicians in countries throughout southeast Asia, Europe, and South America. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Medimaps has obtained a CE 2797 mark for TBS iNsight™, an FDA 510(k) clearance in the US, and it is cleared in more than 60 countries worldwide, including Japan and South Korea. TBS is also now reimbursable in the US and some European countries and is working towards reimbursement in Japan and Korea. TBS is recommended for use by many local, national, and international medical societies such as in Switzerland, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, as well as in the United States, China, and Japan.
“Bone structure is just as important as bone mineral density (BMD) when diagnosing and treating osteoporosis,” said Dr. Young-bok AHN, CEO and founder of OsteoSys. “Along with BMD, Medimaps TBS iNsight™ provides a more complete picture of patient fracture risk. We see TBS iNsight as a viable option integrated into our DXA scanners to address osteoporosis, a health concern that is growing rapidly as the worldwide population ages.”
“Our proprietary and patented technology is empowered by a deep learning multi-layer approach, which makes it applicable for a wide spectrum of image modalities and resolutions,” said Prof Didier Hans, CEO and co-founder of Medimaps Group. “TBS is demonstrating diagnostic accuracy improvement for primary and secondary osteoporosis and in both females and males, and it appears sensitive to changes over time that result from effective treatment (with TBS increasing) or continued bone loss in the absence of effective treatment (with TBS decreasing). Because it is seamlessly integrated into BMD assessment, TBS will be able to be applied in a number of clinical settings, ranging from opportunistic X-ray based screening, to patient risk profiling, and presurgical evaluations.”
Osteoporosis is a condition of primary concern among aging patient populations. Patients at risk for osteoporotic fractures often receive a BMD assessment, which only measures the quantity of bone but not the quality of bone. Medimaps Group’s TBS iNsight works alongside BMD and clinical risk factors to analyze bone micro-architecture as an assessment of bone quality. Within moments, the software application provides practitioners with an easy-to-interpret score to quickly identify and classify patients’ fracture risk and implement a course of intervention. Medimaps technology utilizes the same images acquired for BMD assessment (but also digital x-ray or projected CT images). Patients are not exposed to additional radiation, and TBS integrates seamlessly into a physician’s clinical workflow to provide a completed structured report.

Datopotamab Deruxtecan Showed Encouraging and Durable Efficacy in Patients with Heavily Pretreated HR Positive, HER2 Low or Negative Metastatic Breast Cancer9.12.2022 02:00:00 EET | Press release
Initial results from the TROPION-PanTumor01 phase 1 trial of datopotamab deruxtecan (Dato-DXd) showed encouraging and durable efficacy in patients with heavily pretreated hormone receptor (HR) positive, HER2 low (immunohistochemistry [IHC] 1+ or IHC 2+/in-situ hybridization [ISH]-) or HER2 negative (IHC 0) unresectable or metastatic breast cancer. Safety data were consistent with previous trials of datopotamab deruxtecan. Results were presented today as a Spotlight Poster Discussion (Abstract #PD13-08) at the 2022 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (#SABCS22). Datopotamab deruxtecan is a specifically engineered TROP2 directed DXd antibody drug conjugate (ADC) being jointly developed by Daiichi Sankyo (TSE: 4568) and AstraZeneca (LSE/STO/Nasdaq: AZN). Approximately 70% of breast cancer tumors are considered HR positive and HER2 low or negative.1 For patients with HR positive, HER2 low or negative metastatic breast cancer that progress on or are not suitable candidates for endocrine the

Ipsen Provides Update On Phase III CONTACT-01 Trial Evaluating Cabozantinib in Combination With Atezolizumab in Patients With Metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Previously Treated With Immunotherapy and Chemotherapy9.12.2022 00:05:00 EET | Press release
Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the CONTACT-01 study did not meet its primary endpoint of overall survival (OS) at the final analysis. CONTACT-01 is a phase III clinical trial evaluating Cabometyx® (cabozantinib) in combination with atezolizumab (Tecentriq®) versus docetaxel in patients with unmutated metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who experienced disease progression on or after treatment with an immune checkpoint inhibitor and platinum-containing chemotherapy. Howard Mayer, M.D., Executive Vice President, Head of Research and Development at Ipsen, said: “The results from the CONTACT-01 clinical trial have shown the challenge of treating NSCLC patients after prior lines of treatment have failed. While the findings of the study have not met the primary endpoint in this setting, we remain confident in the clinical efficacy of cabozantinib alone and in combination with another treatment in existing indications in difficult-to-treat tu
