The objective of this study is to prospectively monitor the incidence of adverse drug reactions, specifically NSF during routine use of gadoversetamide in a large number of patients with moderate renal insufficiency (eGFR 30-59) and severe renal insufficiency or end-stage renal disease requiring dialysis (eGFR <30).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary outcome measure will be the diagnosis of NSF based on clinical assessments and patient telephone calls through 24 months of follow-up. [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Serum; Plasma; Fixed tissue samples

Enrollment: 0
Actual Study Start Date: February 2009
Study Completion Date: May 17, 2012
Primary Completion Date: May 17, 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Subjects with moderate renal insufficiency defined as an eGFR 30-60 mL/min/1.73 m2
Subjects with severe renal insufficiency defined as an eGFR <30 mL/min/1.73 m2 and ESRD defined as requiring dialysis


Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Subjects with moderate to severe renal insufficiency that have been identified as requiring (for any indication) a contrast-enhanced MRI using gadoversetamide.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Referred for contrast-enhanced MRI using gadoversetamide;
  • Have a documented estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of <60 mL/min/1.73 m2 within the past 6 months or ESRD requiring dialysis; and
  • Willing and able to provide written consent (themselves or by a legally authorized representative) and agree to abide by study requirements, including being seen by a dermatologist and undergoing a skin biopsy if NSF is suspected.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Have experienced a previous hypersensitivity reaction to a GBCA;
  • Have pre-existing NSF or NSF-like symptoms; or
  • Have been exposed to a GBCA within 12 months prior to the index procedure; or
  • Has a medical condition or other personal situation that would prevent providing follow-up information, completing clinic visits or otherwise supplying meaningful data to meet study objectives.
