Next-generation contrast agents are basically contrast agents with reduced renal toxicity. Contrast agents comes in various forms such as injectable solutions, oral solution, rectal and others. These agents used during diagnostic imaging procedures.
?Contrast agents are highly used during X-rays and CT due to large number of procedures, whereas there is upsurge in demand of contrast agents in ultrasound can be observed in coming future. Computed tomography (CT) is the lowest cost and most widely available medical imaging modality available in hospital settings throughout the world. Current CT contrast agents used to visualize blood vessels are not targeted and are quickly washed-out via the kidneys, however, their use is crucial in angiography and venography for indications such as stroke. 

Similarly, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) segment also marked high adoption of next-gen contrast agents. MRI is one of the most powerful diagnostic techniques at the disposal of the medical community. Almost 75 to 90 million scans performed worldwide annually, can be attributed in part to the use of injectable contrast agents to improve signal differentiation between healthy and pathological tissue.

Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated is one of the player who recently introduced an internally-funded program. The program will leverage Ligand’s patented Captisol technology, a specialized cyclodextrin that plays a role in protecting kidneys from the damaging effects of these agents;  as well as data and intellectual property obtained through its acquisition of Verrow Pharmaceuticals.
