a study on Prostate Cancer
This is a pilot clinical study of hyperpolarized pyruvate (13C) injection that includes the acquisition of magnetic resonance (MR) data and will be performed in men with localized prostate cancer. Part 1: Five patients will be evaluated for reproducibility of 13C HP MR imaging measurements obtained 2-3 weeks apart with no interim treatment. Part 2: Five patients will be evaluated for the change in 13C HP MR imaging measurements after 2 months of ADT. 13C HP MR data will be acquired in two parts of the study (which can occur simultaneously): Part 1: Patients will undergo imaging at baseline and will be repeated two to three weeks later (with no intervention in the interim) to evaluate reproducibility. Part 2: Patients will undergo imaging at baseline, initiate androgen deprivation therapy, and undergo repeat imaging two months after initiation of ADT to evaluate the ability of the imaging to reflect a metabolic response to treatment. The change in pyruvate/lactate ratio and lactate levels will be measured and compared to baseline at these timepoints.
A Pilot Study to Evaluate the Reproducibility of Magnetic Resonance (MR) Imaging With Hyperpolarized Pyruvate (13C) and Its Ability to Reflect Treatment Effects in Patients With Prostate Cancer
Open to males ages 18 years and up
