The purpose of this study is to see how a new tracer named 18F-MFBG (Meta Fluorobenzyl Guanidine) behaves in the body after injection, how it spreads to all the organs and how it is removed from the body. We will also study how long 18F-MFBG lasts in the blood after administered. In addition we want to study if 18F-MFBG can show Neuroendocrine tumors on a PET-CT or PET MR scan.
Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
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.
|Eligible Ages||5 Years and Over|
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.
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.

Experimental: pts with primary or metastatic neuroendocrine tumors
For phase I, a single dose of 18F-MFBG will be injected intravenously in patients. For all patients, pharmacokinetics and bio distribution will be evaluated using non invasive PET scanning and blood assays at multiple time points post injection. In the expansion phase, a single dose of 18F-MFBG will be injected intravenously followed by a single time point imaging using PET MR scanner or PET/CT. In expansion cohort, an additional 50 patients with NB will be imaged. Patients will receive a single dose of 18F-MFBG intravenously, followed by a whole body PET scan on PET/CT or PET/CT scanner at 60-90 minutes post injection. Patients who show lesion detection by MFBG may be eligible for repeat imaging scan with 18 F- MFBG, at the discretion of PI or study investigator(s). All parameters and technical details of scanning will be as per the study and first imaging.
Radiation: - 18F-MFBG (meta-fluoro benzylguanidine)
About 8mCi of 18F-MFBG will be administered to adult patients. Pediatric dose will be based upon adjustment using BSA to the dose of 8 mCi for 1.7m2 BSA ± 10% with maximum activity of 8 mCi. The tracer will be given intravenously.
Device: - Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging
Dynamic imaging for the first 30 min over the chest and Whole body (WB) PET-CT scan. Imaging 2 (~1.0 - 2 hours post dose): Whole body (vertex to feet) PET-CT scan. Imaging 3 (~3-4 hours post dose): Whole body (vertex to feet) PET-CT scan.
Other: - Blood draws
Blood samples to be collected: at baseline, 5, 15, 30, 60, 90, 120 and 180 mins post injection on the day of administration. (Phase I only)
