3'-Deoxy-3'-[18F] Fluorothymidine PET Imaging in Patients With Cancer

Study Purpose

RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) PET imaging, may help find and diagnose cancer. It may also help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying FLT PET imaging in patients with cancer.

Recruitment Criteria

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Accepts Healthy Volunteers
No

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.


An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.


Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Trial Details

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.

Trial ID:
NCT00935090

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Additional Details

OBJECTIVES: Primary

  • - Evaluate the use of 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) positron emission tomography (PET) imaging to measure tumor proliferation and the DNA synthetic pathway (thymidine kinase levels) in patients with cancer.
Secondary
  • - Determine the efficacy of FLT PET imaging in detecting lesions and estimating response to treatment.
OUTLINE: Patients undergo up to four 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine positron emission tomography imaging procedures.
