This study has been completed.

Lantheus Medical Imaging Identifier:
First received: September 9, 2005
Last updated: April 14, 2011
Last verified: April 2011
The purpose of this clinical research study is determine if patients with diabetes that have undergone previous opening of a heart blockage may have a blockage that is not causing any symptoms that may be detected by imaging with Cardiolite.

Condition Intervention Phase
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Coronary Restenosis Drug: Technetium Tc99m Sestamibi Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Cardiolite-406; A Phase IV Open-Label, Randomized, Multi-Center Trial To Evaluate The Ability of Cardiolite Stress MPI to Detect Asymptomatic Restenosis in Diabetic Patients Who Have Undergone Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Further study details as provided by Lantheus Medical Imaging:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate symptom-free heart blockages that develop following initial opening in patients with Type II diabetes mellitus based on Cardiolite imaging

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine how often symptom-free heart blockages occur 5-6 months after opening in patients with Type II diabetes mellitus
  • Examine the relative value of ejection fraction, summed stress, rest, and difference MPI scores for identifying patients with cardiac events during 18 month follow-up.
  • Compare patient hospital and out-patient cost for cardiac care for each group of patients (MPI versus standard care).

Enrollment: 106
