Assessing the Suitability of an Imaging Probe for Use in Clinical Cell and Gene Therapy Trials in Cancer and Rheumatoid Arthritis

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00185848
Recruitment Status : Completed

Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, Stanford University

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether [18F]FHBG is suitable for use as an imaging probe in cancer or rheumatoid arthritis patients enrolled in cell or gene therapy trials. In this phase 1 study we will assess the safety and biodistribution of [18F]FHBG in patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Brain Cancer Arthritis, Rheumatoid Central Nervous System Neoplasms Glioma Radiation: [18F]FHBG Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The success of cell and gene therapy depends on specific targeting of the therapeutic gene or cell that is administered to the patient. Our goal is to develop an imaging method to non-invasively monitor the location of the therapeutic gene or cell. Imaging should help in the design of better protocols and potentially reduce side-effects of cell and gene therapy.
