[18F]Fluciclovine in Post-treatment Glioblastoma ( Axumin )
Subjects with histologically proven glioblastoma (GBM) who are suspected to have progression and are candidates for a surgical resection according to standard of care may be eligible for this study. Subjects may participate in this study if they are at least 18 years of age. Positron emission tomography (PET/CT) imaging will be used to evaluate fluciclovine uptake at sites of suspected progression before planned surgery. In addition, clinical brain MRI with and without contrast will be used to evaluate the tumor pre-operatively. This is a non-therapeutic trial in that imaging will not be used to direct treatment decisions. Investigators...
18F-Fluciclovine PET and Multiparametric MR Imaging
The purpose of the study is to investigate the use of the investigational agent Axumin (fluciclovine-F18) with PET/CT imaging in combination with standard MR imaging to detect remaining or recurrent glioma.
18F-Fluciclovine PET to Distinguish Tumor Progression From Radiation Necrosis
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether 18F-fluciclovine PET/CT of the brain, is able to distinguish radiation necrosis from tumor progression in cases where MRI is inconclusive. 18F-fluciclovine is an FDA approved radioactive diagnostic agent and is injected into the participant and then taken up by cancer cells, which can then be visualized with a PET/CT scan. 18F-fluciclovine is FDA approved for the detection of recurrent prostate cancer, but is still investigational for the purposes of this study.
18F-Fluorocholine PET/CT in Medullary Thyroid Cancer
To assess the diagnostic accuracy of 18F-Fluorocholine PET/CT for the detection of medullary thyroid cancer in patients with primary and recurrent disease.
18F-Fluorodopamine PET Studies of Neuroblastoma and Pheochromocytoma
PET (positron emission tomography) scans combined with a radioactive tracer will be used to identify and analyze tumors. Currently, the most common tracer used to analyze neuroblastoma tumors is called 123I-mIBG. However, the picture it provides is not always clear enough to see the very small areas of the disease. 18F-DA (18F-fluorodopamine) has been shown to be safe and more effective than 123I-mIBG in analyzing the tumor pheochromocytoma, which is closely related to neuroblastoma. With this research study, the investigators plan to meet the following goals: - Investigate to see if 18F-DA is safe to administer to pediatric patients...
18F-Fluoro-Ethyl-Tyrosine (FET) Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Grading Glioma
Role of 18F-FET PET for grading gliomas according to 2016 WHO classification: value of quantitative and qualitative data obtained by 18F-FET PET for differentiating low grade glioma (WHO II) versus high grade gliomas (WHO III and IV)
18F-MFBG Imaging for Evaluation of Neuroendocrine Malignancies
The purpose of this study is to see how a new tracer named 18F-MFBG (Meta Fluorobenzyl Guanidine) behaves in the body after injection, how it spreads to all the organs and how it is removed from the body. We will also study how long 18F-MFBG lasts in the blood after administered. In addition we want to study if 18F-MFBG can show Neuroendocrine tumors on a PET-CT or PET MR scan.
1 Week Versus 6 Weeks of Levetiracetam in Surgical Brain Tumor Patients
The purpose of this study is to see if there are any differences between patients who receive Levetiracetam extended-release tablets for one week after surgery to remove a brain tumor versus those who receive Levetiracetam extended-release tablets for six weeks after surgery. Specifically, we will see if one group has less side effects than the other, and whether or not one group has more seizures than the other.
3'-Deoxy-3'-[18F] Fluorothymidine PET Imaging in Patients With Cancer
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) PET imaging, may help find and diagnose cancer. It may also help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying FLT PET imaging in patients with cancer.
3-month Aerobic and Resistance Exercise Intervention for Individuals Diagnosed With Melanoma
Our proposed study will focus on addressing the feasibility, safety and benefits of a 3-month exercise intervention among individuals diagnosed with melanoma. The study will be conducted at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Eligible participants (n=24) will be randomized into 3 months of wellness education (n=12) or structured exercise (n=12).
