PriMed Non-human Primate Model of Cardiac Diastolic Dysfunction

PriMed Heart Failure NHP Capability: 

 Set up 230 dysmetabolic rhesus ECHO database

 With longitudinal(>5 years) medical records, including echo, clinical pathology, body weight, food intake, vet treatment and dosing record.

 ~60 dyslipidemia rhesus with systolic dysfunction.

 ~100 pre-diabetic/diabetic rhesus with diastolic dysfunction were identified.


Imaging Capability: 

 Extensive Echo and MRI experienceswith monkey cardiac testing

 Equipped with advanced Echo, MRI and CVI software and EchoPAC Software onsite.

 Cardiac function(Echo, MRI tagging).

 Myocardial fibrosis (T1ρ, T1 mapping).

 Myocardial microcirculation (MRI perfusion, oxygen extraction fraction.

 30-year imaging expert as CSO, an echo team with 8 employees(>2 year experience).

Benchmark Study: 

 Entresto and Valsartan have been validated with our HF NHP models

 Echo and MRI were used for outcomes measurement

 PK/PD and toxicity profiling
