YARDLEY, Pa., Jan. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jubilant Radiopharma, the Radiopharmaceutical Division of Jubilant Pharma Ltd, announced today that the company received approval from Health Canada for Drax Exametazine® (Kit for the Preparation of Tc99m Exametazime for leukocyte labeling). Leukocyte labeling scintigraphy is a nuclear medicine imaging procedure that helps physicians localize an intra-abdominal infection and inflammatory bowel disease.

“We are very pleased that Drax Exametazine is now available to patients in Canada,” stated Pramod Yadav, CEO of Jubilant Pharma, Ltd.  “This approval aligns with our core strategy of providing our customers with innovative and differentiated nuclear medicine products used for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.”

Drax Exametazime, which is currently approved in the United States, is a radiopharmaceutical used in nuclear medicine (a medical imaging specialty) to help doctors locate infection in a patient when a source of the infection cannot be accurately identified. Identifying the source of the infection is imperative for the proper diagnosis and characterization of disease and a crucial first step in defining a treatment plan for the patient.

“The Health Canada approval further demonstrates the continued commitment by the Jubilant Radiopharma business to advance the field of nuclear medicine and supports our ongoing mission to improve lives through nuclear medicine,” commented Sergio Calvo, President of Jubilant Radiopharmaceuticals Division. “We remain committed to providing healthcare professionals with the highest quality radiopharmaceuticals and dependable advanced technologies designed to enable better patient outcomes across the globe.”
