Brief Summary:

The specific aims of the study are:

Primary: To determine the presence and regional distribution of microglial activation, as assessed by [F-18]PBR06 PET, in subjects with MSA as compared to healthy controls, at baseline and at 9 months follow-up.

Secondary:

To assess the relationship between microglial activation and clinical progression at baseline and follow-up.

Hypothesis: Our working hypothesis is that there is microglial activation in Multiple System Atrophy and that the presence and regional distribution of microglial activation is different in MSA versus healthy controls and correlates with disease severity and comorbidities.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Multiple Systems Atrophy (MSA-C)
Four subjects with a probable MSA-C diagnosis will be recruited for this study. To be eligible, the subjects must be between 18 and 60 years of age, have an available brain MRI, and motor symptom onset less than two years prior. Each subject will undergo a [F-18]PBR06 PET scan at baseline, and at 9 months follow-up.
Drug: [F-18]PBR06
PET radiopharmaceutical




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Tissue Volume of Distribution [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    PET imaging measurement
