Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the changes in 18F-DTBZ uptake in a cohort of Parkinson's disease patients from baseline to month 18, and 36. [ Time Frame: Four years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To expand the database of 18F-DTBZ PET imaging in Parkinson's Disease patients to refine the definition of a positive scan in patient with PD.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine whether the rate of reduction in 18F-DTBZ uptake in sequential PET imaging during a 36 month interval will correlate with changes in the clinical measures of severity of disease. [ Time Frame: Four years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To expand the safety database of 18F-DTBZ PET imaging Safety variables include adverse event count, lab parameters, vital signs, and ECG. Comparison will be generally made to baseline, as appropriate.

Other Name: 18F-DTBZ AV-133

Detailed Description:

The primary objective of this protocol is to assess the rate of change in striatal 18F-DTBZ uptake in a cohort of Parkinson's disease patients.

This study is expected to be completed in a period of 4 years.
