Integrins are transmembrane cell surface receptors which mediate signal transduction, cell-to-cell interaction and cell-to extracellular matrix adhesion, key processes involved in angiogenesis, tumorigenesis and metastasis. Integrins have thus been hailed as clinically-relevant biomarkers of pathological conditions such as inflammation and tumor progression. The integrin avb3 is significantly upregulated in tumor cells and activated endothelial cells during neoangiogenesis.
IntegriSense™ 645 fluorescent imaging agent is used for in vivo detection of avb3 using a low molecular weight peptidomimetic antagonist coupled to a red fluorochrome. IntegriSense 645, an integrin-targeted molecular imaging agent allows the non-invasive imaging of disease status and progression. Pairing of an integrin antagonist treatment with IntegriSense 645 provides a mechanistic biomarker approach for assessing target coverage.

Current means of measuring disease in preclinical models of atherosclerosis include ex vivo assessment of disease tissues post-mortem and non-invasive imaging primarily of structural and anatomic features of lesions, in vivo. A non-invasive, quantitative means of imaging known biologic profiles associated with atherosclerotic disease, in vivo, would enable a robust additional understanding and analysis of disease progression and therapeutic response in research and drug development. We report the utility of the near infrared (NIR) protease-sensing, ProSense® 750 Fluorescent Pre-clinical Imaging Agent, in combination with the FMT® 2500 Quantitative Pre-clinical Imaging System for the non-invasive quantitative measurement of atherosclerotic disease biology and related response to therapy in apolipoprotein (apo) E-deficient mice in vivo. FMT (Fluorescence Molecular Tomography) imaging measured significant increases in aortic region protease activity with a range of values that were comparable to the range seen in the ex vivo aortic arches assessed by fluorescence reflectance imaging (FRI).
