Scientific Name: Gadofosveset trisodium
Brand Name: Vasovist
Company Owner: Not Available
Mechanism Of Action Gadofosveset binds reversibly to endogenous serum albumin resulting in longer vascular residence time than non-protein binding contrast agents. The binding to serum albumin also increases the magnetic resonance relaxivity of gadofosveset and decreases the relaxation time (Tl) of water protons resulting in an increase in signal intensity (brightness) of blood.
Description of the Drug: Gadofosveset trisodium is an intravenous contrast agent used during magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) to evaluate aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) in adults with peripheral vascular disease.
