This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Bracco Diagnostics, Inc Identifier:
First received: December 13, 2010
Last updated: January 4, 2012
Last verified: January 2012
To compare two gadolinium contrast agents in terms of global paired diagnostic preference (primary endpoint) for the assessment of contrast-enhanced MR Angiography of the carotid, renal/abdominal and peripheral arteries

Condition Intervention Phase
Carotid, Aortic, Renal or Peripheral Artery Disease Drug: Gadobenate Dimeglumine Drug: Gadopentetate Dimeglumine Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: A Phase III, Comparative Multi-center Randomized Double-blind, Crossover Study of the Safety, Tolerability and Diagnostic Efficacy of Gadobenate Dimeglumine and Gadopentetate Dimeglumine in Magnetic Resonance Angiography of the Carotid, Renal/Abdominal and Peripheral Arteries

Further study details as provided by Bracco Diagnostics, Inc:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Diagnostic Preference [ Time Frame: Immediately post dose ]
    Comparison of a single dose of MultiHance versus the double dose of Magnevist currently used for MR Angiography of the carotid, renal/abdominal/ and peripheral arteries in terms of global diagnostic perference

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety comparison of two diagnostic agents [ Time Frame: UP to 24 hours post dose of each contrast agent ]
    to compare the safety of the two investigational products in patients undergoing CE-MRA of the carotid, renal/abdominal and peripheral arteries
