Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

- - Evaluate the use of 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F] fluorothymidine (FLT) positron emission tomography (PET) imaging to measure tumor proliferation and the DNA synthetic pathway (thymidine kinase levels) in patients with cancer.
- - Determine the efficacy of FLT PET imaging in detecting lesions and estimating response to treatment.
The PET scan data collection is started immediately and is continued for 2 hours. This procedure will measure tumor growth within the body.
Device: - 3'-deoxy-3'-[18F]fluorothymidine
The tracer compound [F-18] FLT will be injected into the patient's veins in a small volume of normal saline solution. The PET scan data collection is started immediately and is continued for 2 hours. This procedure will measure tumor growth within the body. Blood may be withdrawn (through the catheters) up to a total volume of 30 milliliters (or 2 tablespoons) for each scan. A urine sample may be collected at the end of the imaging of the tracer compound to analyze its breakdown products.
