Hampton Health, Ltd.™ ranked 7th place for participant qualification and enrollment in this large multi-center study that involved 18 sites nationally.
On May 24th 2012 Dr. Fullerton was interviewed by KTVU Channel 2 News regarding the Clinical Trials of Avid Radiopharmaceuticals, "some calling it the holy grail of Alzheimer's Research" as reported by Channel 2.

Bunker.
Avid Radiopharmaceuticals, Inc., a privately held company developing novel molecular imaging compounds intended for the detection and monitoring of chronic human diseases, was acquired by Eli Lilly and Company in December of 2010.
