Mangoral (manganese chloride tetrahydrate) is a novel oral contrast agent for MR-imaging developed to improve the detection and visualization of focal liver lesions (including liver metastases and primary tumors) in patients with reduced kidney function. These patients are at risk of serious side effects from the currently available class of gadolinium-based contrast agents. Mangoral, which has been granted an Orphan Drug Designation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is currently in Phase 3 development, including the global multi-center SPARKLE study.
Oncoral is a novel oral irinotecan chemotherapy tablet for the treatment of gastric cancer. Oncoral has the potential to offer a more patient friendly cancer drug regimen including a better safety profile following daily tablet dosing at home compared to intravenous high-dose infusions at the hospital. Following successful Phase 1 results, the Phase 2 for Oncoral is in preparation.
