|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
|Official Title:||A Phase I Study to Evaluate the Safety, Biodistribution and Radiation Dosimetry of CardioPET™ as a PET Tracer for Detection of Coronary Artery Disease|
- Change in vital signs. Change in physical examination. Change in ECG. Change in 24-hour Holter. Change in dosimetry (blood and urine)measured at time 0 (immediately folloing injection), 1, 5, 15, 30, 60, and 90 minutes. Adverse event assessment. [ Time Frame: Screening, Pre-dose, Baseline, Day 1, Pre-, Post-Dose 0, 24-48 hours and 7 days (Adverse events). ]Normal healthy volunteers for whole body imaging group and NHV and Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)undergoing cardiac imaging.
- Performance characteristics of CardioPET as a PET tracer for myocardial imaging. [ Time Frame: 0, 1 min, 5 min, 15 min, 30 min, 60 min, and 90 min. ]Normal healthy volunteers and CAD subjects for Cardiac Imaging Only.
- Evaluation and optimization of the methods of image acquisition, output processing, display, reconstruction, and imaging data [ Time Frame: Baseline, 15 second time frames for first 2 minutes, 1 min. time frame for next 8 min., 2 min frames for remainder of 60 min study. ]
