68Ga-DOTATATE PET Scan in Neuroendocrine Cancer
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatment||68ga-dotatate pet scan|
|Phase||phase 1/phase 2|
|Start date||August 2011|
|End date||October 2013|
|Trial size||99 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01396382, 110588|
Neuroendocrine cancer is an unusual disease and often goes undetected by routine imaging. The 68Ga-DOTATATE PET scan is a new generation of scans that might have improved sensitivity and resolution specifically for neuroendocrine tumors. The investigators will scan people with this cancer and compare it to other conventional imaging methods to see if it improves patient care.
|Endpoint classification||safety/efficacy study|
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
We will perform 68Ga-DOTATATE PET scans on subjects
Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability
time frame: One year
Number of lesions detected by 68GA-DOTATATE compared to conventional imaging techniques
time frame: one year
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
- Known diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumor
- At least 18 years of age
- Able to provide informed consent
- Karnofsky score greater than 50
- Females of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at screening/baseline
- Serum creatinine >3.0 mg/dL (270 μM/L)
- Hepatic enzyme levels more than 5 times upper limit of normal.
- Known severe allergy or hypersensitivity to IV radiographic contrast.
- Use of any other investigational product or device within 30 days prior to dosing, or known requirement for any other investigational agent prior to completion of all scheduled study assessments.
- Patients with a body weight of 400 pounds or more or not able to enter the bore of the PET/CT scanner due to BMI, because of the compromise in image quality with CT, PET/CT and MRI that will result.
- Inability to lie still for the entire imaging time (e.g. cough, severe arthritis, etc.).
- Inability to complete the needed investigational and standard-of-care imaging examinations due to other reasons (severe claustrophobia, radiation phobia, etc.)
- Recognized concurrent active infection
- Any additional medical condition, serious intercurrent illness, or other extenuating circumstance that, in the opinion of the Investigator, may significantly interfere with study compliance.
