3'-Deoxy-3'-[18F] Fluorothymidine PET Imaging in Patients With Cancer
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) PET imaging, may help find and diagnose cancer. It may also help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying FLT PET imaging in patients with cancer.

|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Intervention Model Description:
PET scans will be performed to show the distribution throughout the body of substances containing a small amount of radioactive material.Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
|Official Title:||Use of [F-18] FLT for Imaging With Positron Emission Tomography (PET)|
- Measurement of the uptake and retention of 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) in tumors and normal organs [ Time Frame: at time of PET or CT PET Scan ]
- Changes in thymidine kinase, thymidylate synthase, and standardized uptake values [ Time Frame: before and after therapy ]
- FLT PET response rate [ Time Frame: up to 2 hours during PET scan ]
|Study Start Date:||September 2009|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||September 2018|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||September 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The PET scan data collection is started immediately and is continued for 2 hours. This procedure will measure tumor growth within the body.
The tracer compound [F-18] FLT will be injected into the patient's veins in a small volume of normal saline solution. The PET scan data collection is started immediately and is continued for 2 hours. This procedure will measure tumor growth within the body. Blood may be withdrawn (through the catheters) up to a total volume of 30 milliliters (or 2 tablespoons) for each scan. A urine sample may be collected at the end of the imaging of the tracer compound to analyze its breakdown products.
Other Name: PET Scan
- Evaluate the use of 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) positron emission tomography (PET) imaging to measure tumor proliferation and the DNA synthetic pathway (thymidine kinase levels) in patients with cancer.
- Determine the efficacy of FLT PET imaging in detecting lesions and estimating response to treatment.
OUTLINE: Patients undergo up to four 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine positron emission tomography imaging procedures.
