MRI and PET Scan Using 18F-Fluoromisonidazole In Assessing Tumor Hypoxia in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma Multiforme
Basic Trial Information
This phase II trial is studying how well positron emission tomography (PET) scan using 18F-fluoromisonidazole works when given together with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) ) in assessing tumor hypoxia in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Diagnostic procedures, such as MRI and PET scan using 18F-fluoromisonidazole (FMISO), may help predict the response of the tumor to the treatment and allow doctors to plan better treatment.
Further Study Information
I. To determine the association of baseline FMISO PET uptake (hypoxic volume [HV]), highest tumor:blood ratio [T/Bmax]) and MRI parameters (Ktrans, CBV) with overall survival (OS) in participants with newly diagnosed GBM.
I. To determine the association of baseline FMISO PET uptake (HV, T/Bmax) and MRI parameters (Ktrans, CBV) with time to progression (TTP) and 6-month progression free survival (PFS-6) in participants with newly diagnosed GBM.
II. To assess the reproducibility of the baseline FMISO PET uptake parameters by implementing baseline "test" and "retest" PET scans (performed within 1 to 7 days of each other).
III. To assess the correlation between highest tissue:cerebellum ratio [T/Cmax] and T/Bmax at baseline.
IV. To assess the correlation between other MRI parameters (T1Gd, VCI, CBV-S, ADC, NAA-Cho, BOLD, T2) and OS, TTP, and PFS-6.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Two weeks before initiation of chemoradiotherapy with temozolomide, patients undergo MRI and PET scan using FMISO. A subset of 15 patients undergo FMISO PET scans approximately 1 week before chemoradiotherapy. Blood samples are collected at baseline and periodically during study to compare image measures of tissue uptake of FMISO to blood concentrations. Tumor samples are collected from diagnostic biopsy or surgery for analysis of tumor hypoxic markers and methylguanine methyl transferase by immunohistochemical and PCR assays.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up every 3 months for up to 5 years.
