2014-07-23 21:09:44 | BioPortfolio


The objective of this study is to characterize the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetic profiles of Optimark at the standard clinical dose of 0.1 mmol/kg in the pediatric patient population.


Pediatric patients referred for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the liver or central nervous system (CNS) will be stratified by age to one of two groups (2 through 11 and 12 through 18 years of age).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Conditions or pathological processes associated with the disease of diabetes mellitus. Due to the impaired control of BLOOD GLUCOSE level in diabetic patients, pathological processes develop in numerous tissues and organs including the EYE, the KIDNEY, the BLOOD VESSELS, and the NERVE TISSUE.

Pathological conditions involving ARTERIES in the skull, such as arteries supplying the CEREBRUM, the CEREBELLUM, the BRAIN STEM, and associated structures. They include atherosclerotic, congenital, traumatic, infectious, inflammatory, and other pathological processes.

Pathological conditions of intracranial ARTERIES supplying the CEREBRUM. These diseases often are due to abnormalities or pathological processes in the ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY; MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY; and POSTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY.

The capacity of an organism to defend itself against pathological processes or the agents of those processes. This most often involves innate immunity whereby the organism responds to pathogens in a generic way. The term disease resistance is used most frequently when referring to plants.
