Intrinsic Imaging Undergoes Extensive FDA BIMO Inspection

Intrinsic Imaging, a global medical imaging core lab for clinical trials, announces today that it recently underwent an extensive 5-day high priority Bioresearch Monitoring Program (BIMO) inspection by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). This most recent inspection was related to a pivotal study of a new biologic license application (BLA) in patients with advanced epithelial cancers, including breast, glioblastoma multiforme, hepatocellular, lung, ovarian, prostate, and related cancers.

Similar to its prior inspections, Intrinsic Imaging was in complete compliance and received zero 483 observations from the FDA. During this successful inspection, the FDA audit included a review of all clinical trial documentation, standard operating procedures, site training and qualification records, image transmittal forms, radiologist RECIST determinations, case report forms, and adjudication determinations.
