What is Tauvid?

Tauvid is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Eli Lilly and company, Avid Radiopharmaceuticals, designed to detect the tau protein tangles in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease. FDA approval of Tauvid is based on clinical studies of terminally ill patients, comparing Tauvid brain scans to post-mortem analyses of brain tissue.

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurocognitive disease that destroys brain function, leading to cognitive decline and behavioral and psychiatric disorders.

Tauvid is not recommended for use in the evaluation of patients for chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), or for use in pediatric patients.

What doses of Tauvid are available?

Tauvid is available as an intravenous injection, in the following doses: 300 MBq/mL to 1,900 MBq/mL of flortaucipir F 18 injection in a multiple-dose vial.

A trained healthcare professional will give you this medicine as a bolus intravenous injection before you have a PET scan. See the full prescribing information for additional preparation, and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Tauvid active ingredients

Tauvid contains flortaucipir F18 as the active ingredient. It is not an imaging agent that targets beta-amyloid, 1 of the components of the neuropathological diagnosis of AD. It is a radioactive diagnostic agent for positron emission tomography/PET imaging of the brain to estimate the quantity of tau neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) in adult patients with cognitive impairment who are being evaluated for Alzheimer’s disease.
