This study will re-read 10-minute positron emission tomography (PET) scans acquired in previous clinical studies of AV-45 at 30 and 50 minutes after injection and compare the results.

Condition Intervention
Alzheimer's Disease
Drug: florbetapir F 18

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Comparison of PET Images Acquired at 30 Min and 50 Min Post Injection of 18F-AV-45 in Healthy Volunteers and Alzheimer's Disease Patients

Further study details as provided by Avid Radiopharmaceuticals:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Agreement of Interpretation Between 30-40 and 50-60 Min Reads - Qualitative Evaluation [ Time Frame: Scans acquired 30-40 min and 50-60 min after injection ]
    Three independent readers blinded to subject identification, subject diagnosis, subject demographics and PET scan time points post-injection read each scan and reported as amyloid positive or amyloid negative. Results show the percentage of agreement between the majority read of 30-40 min scan and the majority read of the 50-60 min scan.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Agreement of Interpretation Between 30-40 and 50-60 Min Reads - Semi-quantitative Evaluation [ Time Frame: Scans acquired 30-40 min and 50-60 min post-injection ]
    Three independent readers blinded to subject identification, subject diagnosis, subject demographics and PET scan time points post-injection read each scan and reported the results using a 5-point scale (0=no amyloid; 4=high levels of amyloid deposition). Results are reported as a weighted kappa statistic.

Eligibility for subjects scans to be used in this study is determined by subject's eligibility/enrollment in Study A01(NCT01565291) or A03(NCT01565330).

Inclusion Criteria (AD group):

  • Greater than 50 years of age
  • Probable AD according to the National Institute of Neurological and Communication Disorders and Stroke-Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association (NINCDS-ADRDA) criteria
  • Mild/moderate dementia as evidenced by a Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score ranging from 10 to 24, boundaries included, at screening
  • History of cognitive decline gradual in onset and progressive over a period of at least 6 months

Inclusion Criteria (A01[NCT01565291] healthy volunteer group):

  • 50 years of age, inclusive

    • MMSE of 29 or greater

Inclusion Criteria (A03[NCT01565330] healthy volunteer group):

  • 35 to 55 years of age, inclusive
  • MMSE of 29 or greater

Exclusion Criteria (both groups):

  • Neurodegenerative disorders other than AD, including, but not limited to Parkinson's disease, Pick's disease, fronto-temporal dementia, Huntington's chorea, Down syndrome, Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, normal pressure hydrocephalus, and progressive supranuclear palsy
  • Diagnosis of other dementing / neurodegenerative disease
  • Diagnosis of mixed dementia
  • Cognitive impairment resulting from trauma, hypoxic damage, vitamin deficiency, brain infection, brain cancer, endocrine disease, or mental retardation
  • Clinically significant infarct or possible multi-infarct dementia as defined by the NINCDS criteria
  • Evidence on screening MRI or other biomarker that suggests alternate etiology for cognitive deficit (for healthy controls, evidence suggesting the presence of AD pathology)
  • Clinically significant psychiatric disease
  • History of epilepsy or convulsions
  • Clinically significant hepatic, renal, pulmonary, metabolic, or endocrine disturbances
  • Current clinically significant cardiovascular disease
  • Received investigational medication within the last 30 days
