The purpose of this study is to determine the toxicity of the hypoxia PET-tracer [18F]-VM4-037 in cancer patients in two dose-steps:

  • Step 1 (3-6 patients): a single dose of maximum 8 mCi (296 MBq) dose of [18F]VM4-037 via a bolus IV injection.
  • Step 2 (3-6 patients): a single dose of maximum 12 mCi (444 MBq) dose of [18F]VM4-037 via a bolus IV injection

Condition Intervention Phase
Stage 4 Cancer Drug: [18F]VM4-037 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Non Invasive Imaging of [18F]VM4-037 With Positron-Emission-Tomography (PET): A Phase I Trial

Study Completion Date: November 2012
Primary Completion Date: November 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: [18F]VM4-037
    Bolus IV injection of [18F]VM4-037

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histological or cytological confirmed solid tumour, primary or secondary stage IV and/ or tumours with no curative treatment options
  • WHO performance status 0 to 1
  • Normal white blood cell count and formula
  • Normal platelet count
  • No anaemia requiring blood transfusion or erythropoietin
  • Adequate hepatic function: Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) for the institution; ALT, AST, and alkaline phosphatase ≤ 2.5 x ULN for the institution)
  • Calculated Creatinin clearance at least 60 ml/min
  • No administration of Fluor-18 in the previous 24 hours
  • The patient is capable of complying with study procedures
  • 18 years or older

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Only visible tumor sites in the upper abdomen (because the uptake of VM4-037 in the liver, stomach and the kidneys would interfere with image quality of the tumor)
  • Known hypersensitivity for sulfonamides
  • Recent (< 3 months) myocardial infarction
  • Uncontrolled infectious disease
  • Less than 18 years old
  • Pregnancy
  • No concurrent anti-cancer agents or radiotherapy allowed
