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)
