Comparison of 1.0 M Gadobutrol and 0.5 M Gadopentetate Dimeglumine-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Five Hundred Seventy-Two Patients With Known or Suspected Liver Lesions: Results of a Multicenter, Double-Blind, Interindividual, Randomized Clinical Phase-III Trial. [2009.01.22]
CONCLUSION:: This study documents evidence for the noninferiority of a single i.v. bolus injection of 1.0 M gadobutrol (0.1 mmol/kg body weight) to 0.5 M gadopentetate (0.1 mmol/kg body weight) in the diagnostic assessment of liver lesions with contrast-enhanced MRI. The known excellent safety profile of gadobutrol was confirmed in this clinical trial and is similar to that of gadopentetate.
Evaluation of intraaxial enhancing brain tumors on magnetic resonance imaging: intraindividual crossover comparison of gadobenate dimeglumine and gadopentetate dimeglumine for visualization and assessment, and implications for surgical intervention. [2007.04]
OBJECT: The goal in this article was to compare 0.1 mmol/kg doses of gadobenate dimeglumine (Gd-BOPTA) and gadopentetate dimeglumine, also known as gadolinium diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA), for enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of intraaxial brain tumors... CONCLUSIONS: Lesion visualization, delineation, definition, and contrast enhancement are significantly better after administration of 0.1 mmol/kg Gd-BOPTA, potentially allowing better surgical planning and follow up and improved disease management.

Anti-Tac(90 Y-HAT) to Treat Hodgkin's Disease, Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Lymphoid Leukemia [Recruiting]
This study will examine the use of a radioactive monoclonal antibody called yttrium
90-labeled humanized anti-Tac (90 Y-HAT) for treating certain cancers. Monoclonal antibodies
are genetically engineered proteins made in large quantities and directed against a specific
target in the body. The anti-Tac antibody in this study is targeted to tumor cells and is
tagged (labeled) with a radioactive substance called Yttrium-90 (Y-90). The study will
determine the maximum tolerated dose of 90Y-HAT and examine its safety and effectiveness.
Patients 18 years of age and older with Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and
lymphoid leukemia who have proteins on their cancer cells that react with anti-Tac may be
eligible for this study. Candidates are screened with a medical history and physical
examination, blood and urine tests, electrocardiogram (EKG), chest x-ray, CT scan or
ultrasound of the abdomen, PET scan of the neck and body, and skin test for immune
reactivity to antigens (similar to skin tuberculin test).
Before beginning treatment, participants may undergo additional procedures, including the
- Patients with suspicious skin lesions have a skin biopsy. An area of skin is numbed and
a circular piece of skin about 1/4-inch diameter is removed with a cookie cutter-like
- Patients with hearing loss have a hearing test.
- Patients with neurological symptoms have a lumbar puncture (spinal tap). A local
anesthetic is given and a needle is inserted in the space between the bones in the
lower back where the cerebrospinal fluid circulates below the spinal cord. A small
amount of fluid is collected through the needle.
- Patients who have not had a bone marrow biopsy within 6 months of screening also
undergo this procedure. The skin and bone at the back of the hip are numbed with a
local anesthetic and a small piece of bone is withdrawn through a needle.
Patients receive 90 Y-HAT in escalating doses to determine the highest dose that can be
safely given. The first group of three patients receives a low dose and, if there are no
significant side effects at that dose, the next three patients receive a higher dose. This
continues with subsequent groups until the maximum study dose is reached. 90 Y-HAT is given
through a vein (IV) over a 2-hour period. In addition, a drug called Ca-DTPA is given via IV
over 5 hours for 3 days to help reduce the side effects of the 90Y-HAT. In some patients,
the 90 Y-HAT may also be attached to a radioactive metal called Indium-111 to monitor what
happens to the injected material. During infusion of the drug, patients undergo PET scanning
to trace the path of the injected material in the body. For this procedure, the patient lies
in the scanner, remaining in one position during the entire infusion.
Blood and urine specimens are collected periodically over a 6-week period following the
infusion to determine the level of the radioactive antibody. Bone marrow, lymph node, or
skin biopsies may be done to determine how much of the antibody entered these sites.
Patients whose disease remains stable or improves with therapy may receive up to six more
infusions of 90 Y-HAT , with at least a 6-week interval between treatments.
Antimicrobial Solution or Saline Solution in Maintaining Catheter Patency and Preventing Catheter-Related Blood Infections in Patients With Malignancies [Not yet recruiting]
RATIONALE: Antimicrobial solution comprising trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, edetate calcium
disodium, and ethanol may help prevent blockages and infections from forming in patients
with central venous access catheters or peripheral venous catheters.

Radiolabeled Monoclonal Antibody Therapy in Treating Adult Patients Who Have Recurrent Hodgkin's Lymphoma or Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma [Recruiting]
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver
cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of radiolabeled
monoclonal antibody when given together with pentetic acid calcium and to see how well they
work in treating patients with recurrent Hodgkin's lymphoma or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver
tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of radiolabeled monoclonal antibody plus
pentetic acid calcium in patients with leukemia.
