Gadolinium-based Contrast Agents: update on PRAC recommendations Villepinte, March 13, 2017 - Guerbet takes note of the recommendations issued by the... PRAC recommendationsare as follows: “EMA’s Pharmacovigilance and Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) has recommended the suspension of the marketing authorisations for four linear gadolinium contrast agents because of evidence that small amounts of the gadolinium they contain are deposited in the brain.
The agents concerned are intravenous injections of gadobenic acid, gadodiamide, gadopentetic acid and gadoversetamide, which are given to patients to enhance images from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) body scans. (...)
The four agents recommended for suspension are referred to as linear agents. Linear agents have a structure more likely to release gadolinium, which can build up in body tissues.
Other agents, known as macrocyclic agents, are more stable and have a much lower propensity to release gadolinium. The PRAC recommends that macrocyclic agents2 be used at the lowest dose that enhances images sufficiently to make diagnoses and only when unenhanced body scans are not suitable.”

A year after doubling in size, following a major acquisition, the Group continues to grow as one of the leading players in medical imaging worldwide. The Group offers a full range of medical solutions and services – in CT scan, MRI and Interventional Radiology – ongoing investment in innovation and its production capacities, in addition to a network of subsidiaries and partners that ensure a presence in all the principal global markets.

A pioneer and a player in imaging of the future

Although the history of Guerbet dates back to 1901, with the discovery by Marcel Guerbet of the world’s first iodinated contrast agent, the official creation of the pharmaceutical company dates from 15 November 1926. In 1965 it became SA Laboratoires André Guerbet. From a headcount of 150 at that time, its staff grew to 1,000 in 1990, 1,500 in 2015 and 2,600 today, following the acquisition of Mallinckrodt’s “Contrast Media and Delivery Systems” business, finalized a year ago. With this acquisition Guerbet has reached a critical size in each segment and geographical zone with the ambition of entering the world’s top three.

The video illustrating our 90 years of history can be seen at the following link:

In line with this celebration Guerbet’s sites worldwide will be organizing events associating their employees and their external audiences over the coming months.
