MedTrace Has Activated Four New U.S. Sites, Adding Momentum and Excitement Around Its Phase III Clinical Trial

Installation of MedTrace’s point-of-care manufacturing system, P3 MT-100. The company now has six active trial sites across Denmark and the U.S.

MedTrace, an innovator in PET diagnostic imaging, announces today that a total of five U.S. trial sites are up and running. Senior Director of Clinical Affairs, Emily Vandenbroucke, describes this development as a great boost to the momentum and excitement surrounding the company’s Phase III Clinical Trial.  

Washington University in St. Louis, The University of Iowa, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) in the U.S. are now 15O-water-ready and recruiting in MedTrace’s ongoing Phase III study. They complement previously activated sites Mayo Clinic and Aarhus University Hospital (AUH).  

The four new university hospitals have successfully installed and qualified MedTrace’s automated manufacturing system, P3 MT-100, that automates the manufacturing and provides measured doses of 15O-water ready for injection to patients during PET exams. The system plays a central part in MedTrace’s 15O-water Phase III Clinical Trial, RAPID-WATER-FLOW. 

With the four new trial sites active, MedTrace now has six active trial sites across Denmark and the U.S. A total of approximately 12 sites are anticipated to participate in the trial across Europe, the U.S., and Canada. 

“Multiple sites are essential in securing robustness, diversity, and reliability in any clinical trial. I’m proud that so many different sites are eager to have access to our technology and participate in our 15O-water trial. It’s a tremendous achievement, and speaks to the dedication of all involved, to have a Phase III trial successfully running at some of the top centers in Europe and North America,” says Emily Vandenbroucke, Senior Director of Clinical Affairs at MedTrace. 

The Phase III Clinical Trial seeks to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy and safety of 15O-water as a myocardial perfusion PET imaging agent.

About the RAPID-WATER-FLOW Trial

The trial is a Phase III, prospective, open-label, multicenter study of 15O-water injection for PET imaging of subjects with suspected CAD. Approximately 182 evaluable participants with suspected CAD referred for testing will be included in the study at approximately 12 study sites. Approximately 215 participants will be enrolled to account for an estimated 15% drop-out rate. Screening assessments will occur prior to enrollment to confirm eligibility. All participants will receive two doses of 15O-water as part of a single PET imaging session (one dose at rest and one during pharmacological stress with adenosine). A safety follow-up phone call will occur 24 ± 8 hours after completion of the 15O-water scan.
