Development of a Novel 18F-DTBZ PET Imaging as a Biomarker to Monitor Neurodegeneration of PARK6 and PARK8 Parkinsonism
The primary objective of this protocol is to access the utility of 18F-DTBZ PET imaging as an in vivo biomarker to monitor neurodegeneration of both PD mouse models and PD patients. Secondary, the investigators will analyze progression rate of genetic-proving PARK8 and PARK6 patients who have homogeneous phenotype and genotype by 18F-DTBZ PET imaging.

- To calculate the decline rate of striatal 18F-FP-(+)-DTBZ binding and to evaluate whether the degenerative rate differs between idiopathic PD patients and genetic-proving PARK6/PARK8 patients [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]The annual decline rate of striatal 18F-DTBZ SUVRs (specific uptake value ratios) in PD patients carrying LRRK2 G2385R mutation, PARK6 patients, and patients with idiopathic PD, respectively.
- To analyze the correlation between decline rate of 18F-FP-(+)-DTBZ uptake and clinical severity, and access the feasibility of 18F-DTBZ PET imaging as an in vivo biomarker to monitor neurodegeneration in PD [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]To analyze the correlation between 18F-FP-(+)-DTBZ annual decline rate and the progression rate of clinical motor scores/non-motor scores/ neuropsychiatric tests in each group. Furthermore, to access the utility of 18F-DTBZ PET imaging as an in vivo biomarker to monitor neurodegeneration in PD patients.

Experimental: 18F-DTBZ for Parkinson's Disease
This study will compare the brain uptake of 18F- DTBZ in 60 PD patients, including 20 LRRK2 G2385R, 20 PARK6, and 20 idiopathic PD. Subjects will be evaluated sequentially with 18F-DTBZ during a 36 month period. 18F-DTBZ PET scans will be performed twice, at baseline, and 24 (21~27) months following the start of their participation in the study.
Subjects will receive a single i.v. administration of approximately 10 mCi 18F-FP-(+)-DTBZ (10 nmole FP-(+)-DTBZ) immediately prior to each scan.
The proposed dose for this study is based on our phase I study. At the proposed human dose of 10 mCi, the whole body effective dose (ED) will be approximately 680 mrem. The estimated human ED is expected to be comparable to or below the range of other approved brain imaging agents, such as 18F-FDG.
Other Name: 18F-DTBZ
Total of 60 patients, 20 LRRK2 G2385R, 20 PARK6, and 20 idiopathic PD, will be recruited. Subjects will be evaluated sequentially with 18F-DTBZ during a 36 month period. 18F-DTBZ PET scans will be performed twice, at baseline, and 24 (21~27) months following the start of their participation in the study. Subjects will receive a single i.v. administration of approximately 10 mCi 18F-DTBZ immediately prior to imaging. Whitney test will be used to compare the mean standard uptake value ratio (SUVR) values between groups. The decline rate of VMAT2 density will be calculated by comparing the SUVRs of age-matched healthy subjects from our previous studies. Each evaluable subject involved in this study must fulfill all the inclusion and exclusion criteria according the subject grouping, each subject will have 3 visits in each scan (total 6 visits in this study), as one screening visit, one imaging visit, and one safety evaluation visit.
Safety measurement will be evaluated by medical history, vital signs, physical examinations, laboratory examinations and collecting of adverse events.
