Phase I Safety and Dosimetry Study in Patients With Confirmed Metastatic Melanoma
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This is an open-label, single dose study for patients 18 years of age or older with confirmed metastatic melanoma. Up to 12 patients will be enrolled and all will receive an injection of approximately 4.0 to 6.0 mCi (148-222 MBq) of 131-I-MIP-1145 administered via IV injection. The study will consist of a single dosing day followed by a 7-day assessment period and 21-day follow-up period. The total duration of the study from screening to final follow-up visit is approximately 60 days.
To estimate radiation absorbed doses (dosimetry) to known 131-I-MIP-1145 avid lesions and to the whole body, following a single bolus (IV) injection of approximately 4.0 to 6.0 mCi (148-222 MBq) of 131-I-MIP-1145.

Received an investigational compound and/or medical device within 30 days before admission into this study
Administered a 99mTc-labeled radioisotope < 3 days prior to imaging or < 7days prior to imaging for other diagnostic radioisotopes with half lives greater than 24 hours
Any known allergy or sensitivity to iodine. Iodinated X-ray contrast hypersensitivity is not an exclusion.
