Clinical Trials Using Fluorine F 18 Ara-G

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Fluorine F 18 Ara-G. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

Trials 1-2 of 2
  • Detection of Graft Versus Host Disease With [18F]F-AraG

    This is a single-center imaging study to determine utility of in vivo imaging with [18F]F-AraG to identify sites of Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD) in patients highly suspected of having acute GVHD who require systemic therapy, and patients at high risk for developing acute GVHD. [18F]F-AraG PET scans will be compared to biopsy results to correlate T cell accumulation which is implicated in the disease. High risk patients will be followed to verify predictive potential of [18F]F-AraG.

  • Study to Evaluate Immunological Response to PD-1 Inhibition in Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (SCCHN)

    This is a single-center cross-sectional imaging and correlative biomarker study in patients with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (SCCHN). Cohort 1 will be patients with unresectable or metastatic SCCHN cancer receiving standard of care (SOC) anti-PD-1 treatment and Cohort 2 will be neoadjuvant study participants who will receive one dose of anti-PD-1 treatment prior to tumor resection or radiation. Blood sampling and tissue biopsies will be collected from both cohorts and both cohorts will undergo two whole body PET(Positron Emission Tomography) / CT(Computed Tomography) imaging with [18F]F-AraG. First scan prior to initiating anti-PD-1 treatment and second scan post initiation of anti-PD-1 treatment in Cohort 1 and prior to tumor resection or radiation in Cohort 2
