time frame: Approximately 2 years

Eligibility Criteria

All participants from 18 years up to 80 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Male or female subjects at least 18 years of age - Subjects who in the opinion of the investigator based on medical history and physical exam can tolerate the PET scan procedures Exclusion Criteria: - Have clinically significant hepatic, renal, pulmonary, metabolic, or endocrine disturbances - Have current clinically significant cardiovascular disease. - Have a history of drug or alcohol abuse within the last year, or prior prolonged history of abuse - Have a clinically significant infectious disease, including Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) or Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection or previous positive test for hepatitis - Women of childbearing potential must not be pregnant (negative urine beta-hCG at the time of screening and negative urine beta-hCG on the day of imaging) or lactating at screening or at day of imaging - Have a history of relevant severe drug allergy or hypersensitivity (Relevant severe drug allergies should be determined by the PI, and any questions about a subject's eligibility can be directed to Avid. If a subject has a history of severe drug allergies, it may be dangerous for them to participate in a study with a novel compound - Have received an investigational medication within the last 30 days. Current clinically significant or unstable medical comorbidities, as indicated by history or physical exam - Have received a radiopharmaceutical for imaging or therapy within the past 7 days prior to the imaging session for this study - Body weight > 300 pounds - History of significant radiation exposure - Participants with pacemakers, implanted electronic hearing devices, aneurysm clips, shrapnel, unallowed prosthetic or other metallic device in their bodies - Pre-existing CNS disease (other than dementia), endocrine, or severe cardiovascular disease (MI, CABG, angioplasty)

Additional Information

Official title "[11C] PIB Comparison Study to [18F] AV-45 in Subjects With Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and Age Matched Healthy Controls"
Principal investigator Dean F Wong, MD, PhD
Description The objectives of the study are: 1. To perform PET scans with [11C]PIB to use for direct (i.e., same-subjects) comparison of [11C]PIB and [18F]AV-45 2. To establish the most effective and reliable PET imaging method to detect amyloid deposition in AD, in order to understand disease progression and subsequently evaluate treatment effects. 3. To ascertain a PET imaging method that will minimize discomfort for subjects, thus increasing the potential for clinical follow-up scans, by reducing the patient burden and potential cost of future PET examinations. A separate protocol/study will be conducted using [18F] AV-45. Participants who enroll in this protocol using [11C] PIB will be consented to participate in the [18F] AV-45 (IRB # NA_00033155) protocol/study as it is a mandatory requirement that participants participate in both protocols.Up to 20 participants with mild to moderate Alzheimer's Disease and 10 healthy volunteers will participate in this study.
