Study Design
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Type: Drug
Overall Status
The primary objective of this study is to determine if Gallium-68 labeled DOTA-TOC will result in the delineation of more lesions in patients with somatostatin receptor positive malignancies than with conventional imaging.
Criteria for eligibility
Healthy Volunteers: No
Maximum Age: N/A
Minimum Age: 18 Years
Gender: Both
Criteria: Inclusion Criteria:

- Known or suspected somatostatin receptor positive tumor such as carcinoid; neuroendocrine tumor; neuroblastoma; pheochromocytoma. Supporting evidence may include MRI, CT, biochemical markers, and or pathology report.

- Age > 18.

- Karnofsky performance status of > 50 (or ECOG/WHO equivalent).

- Not pregnant. A negative serum pregnancy test is required for all female subjects with child-bearing potential.

- Ability to understand a written informed consent document, and the willingness to sign it

Exclusion Criteria:

- Hepatic enzymes 5 times greater than the upper limits of normal, serum creatinine > 3.0 mg/dL (270 uM/L)

- Patients exceeding the weight limitations of the scanner or are not able to enter the bore of the PET/CT scanner due to BMI

- Inability to lie still for the entire imaging time (e.g. cough, severe arthritis, etc.)

- Inability to complete the needed investigational and standard-of-care imaging examinations due to other reasons (severe claustrophobia, radiation phobia, etc.)

- Any additional medical condition, serious intercurrent illness, or other extenuating circumstance that, in the opinion of the Investigator, may significantly interfere with study compliance

- Recognized concurrent active infection

- Previous systemic or radiation treatment for another cancer of any type within the last 2 months

- Use of any other investigational product or device within 30 days prior to dosing, or known requirement for any other investigational agent prior to completion of all scheduled study assessments.
