Radiopharmaceutical firm Immunomedics of Morris Plains, NJ, last month submitted to the European Medicines Evaluation Agency (EMEA) a regulatory application for use of its lead product, CEA-Scan, in breast imaging applications.

CEA-Scan is already being sold in the U.S. and Europe for the detection of colorectal cancer.
