Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Increased uptake of [F-18]FDOPA in pediatric brain tumors compared to contralateral normal brain tissue as measured by standardized uptake value and tumor/non-tumor uptake ratios [ Time Frame: 15-30 minutes after IV administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: February 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2013
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Phase I
Children, ages 5-15 years with brain tumors
Drug: [F-18]Fluoro-DOPA PET, a diagnostic radiopharmaceutical
A single dosage of the diagnostic drug will be administered to individuals who meet inclusion criteria after informed consent.

Detailed Description:

The first phase of the study will investigate if there is increased uptake of [F-18]FDOPA in pediatric brain tumors when compared to normal brain tissue. Tne subjects between ages 5 and 17 years will be studies, to determine if there is increased uptake of [F-18]FDOPA in pediatric brain tumors when compared to normal brain tissue. Drug safety will also be monitored.
