  Purpose

This study will recruit a total of 150 evaluable subjects (30 cognitively normal volunteers, and 60 MCI(Mild cognitive impairment), and 60 AD(Alzheimer's disease), respectively) Each evaluable subject involved in this study must fulfill all the inclusion and exclusion criteria according the subject grouping.

Safety measurement will be evaluated by medical history, vital signs, physical examinations, laboratory examinations and collecting of adverse events.

This study is expected to be completed in a period of 3 years.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To expand the safety database of [18F]AV-45 PET imaging [ Time Frame: one year ]
    To expand the database of [18F]AV-45 PET imaging in Alzheimer's disease and MCI patients to refine the definition of a positive scan in patient with AD and MCI as compared to healthy control.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To expand the safety database of [18F]AV-45 PET imaging [ Time Frame: two year ]

    To expand the safety database of [18F]AV-45 PET imaging Safety variables include adverse event count, lab parameters, vital signs, and ECG. Comparison will be generally made to baseline, as appropriate.

    To understand prevalence of Aß positivity in patients with MCI and AD. Images will be visually examined by a trained radiologist or nuclear medicine physician who is blinded to the subject diagnosis and will be reported as either Aβ positive (AD-like) or Aβ negative (not AD-like). The prevalence of Aß positivity in patients with MCI and AD will be recorded for comparison.



Enrollment: 150

Primary Completion Date: November 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: [18F]AV-45 PET amyloid binding imaging Drug: [18F]AV-45 PET amyloid binding imaging

This study will recruit a total of 150 evaluable subjects (30 cognitively normal volunteers, and 60 MCI, and 60 AD, respectively) Each evaluable subject involved in this study must fulfill all the inclusion and exclusion criteria according the subject grouping.

Safety measurement will be evaluated by medical history, vital signs, physical examinations, laboratory examinations and collecting of adverse events.


Detailed Description:
The primary objective of this protocol is to address the feasibility of clinical utilization of [18F]AV-45 in various neurodegenerative diseases. Specifically, we will expand the database of [18F]AV-45 PET imaging in Alzheimer's disease and MCI patients to refine the definition of a positive scan in patient with AD and MCI as compared to healthy control. Secondary, we will expand the safety database of [18F]AV-45 PET imaging. In addition, the image characteristics and prevalence of Aß positivity will be evaluated in different subsets of MCI and AD patients.
