Vivacitas Oncology, Inc. and Image Analysis Group to Present on AR-67 Clinical Response Evaluation at the Society for Neuro-Oncology Annual Conference

Vivacitas Oncology, a privately-held oncology company focused on tough-to-treat cancers, and Image Analysis Group (IAG), a premier image-analysis company and developer of the proprietary Artificial Intelligence (AI)-assisted Dynamika™ platform, will present a poster at this year’s annual Society of Neuro-Oncology (SNO) conference November 18-21, 2021, in Boston, MA. 
The poster “RESPONSE EVALUATION OF AR-67 FROM A PHASE-2 RECURRENT GLIOBLASTOMA TRIAL BY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE-ASSISTED TUMOR VOLUMETRIC ESTIMATION: COMPARISON WITH THE SUM OF THE PERPENDICULAR DIAMETERS PRODUCTS,” describes how using the Dynamika™ platform to analyze MRI images via novel AI-assisted volumetric measurements may provide a more accurate estimation of patient responses to therapeutic interventions, potentially reducing the risk of drawing conclusions based on false positive or negative data. The poster presentation will focus on comparing current standard of care and analytical approaches such as the Modified Radiographic Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology (mRANO) in calculating the Sum of Perpendicular Diameters Products (SPDP) of tumor images and IAG’s AI-assisted Dynamika™ platform in estimating response rates to AR-67, Vivacitas’ lead investigational compound, in a patient subset from a Phase 2 clinical trial in recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme (reGBM).
“We are excited about learning more about AR-67’s therapeutic potential in reGBM through our collaboration with IAG and application of their AI-assisted volumetric measurement platform”, said Tina Runk, EVP of Clinical Operations, Co-Founder, and Director of Vivacitas.
Dr. Diana Dupont-Roettger, the Chief Scientific Alliance Officer at IAG, stated, “We are excited to bring the latest and most impactful imaging strategies to Vivacitas to ensure a scientific excellence and efficient drug development process.”
Details of the abstract and poster session are as follows:
