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.
|Eligible Ages||N/A - 21 Years|
- - Suspected or biopsy-proven neuroblastoma or recurrence of neuroblastoma.
- - Planned 123I-MIBG imaging.
- - Able and willing to provide signed informed consent in French or English (for the adult candidates or the parent/legal tutor of the pediatric candidates) - Aged between 1 day and 21 years old (inclusively).
- - History of another cancer in the past 5 years other than non-melanomatous skin cancer.
- - Currently under a randomized control trial with unknown allocation; - Medical/surgical intervention on the tumour between 123I-MIBG and 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT scan.
- - Medically unstable or unable to undergo scan.
- - Pregnancy (breastfeeding is not an exclusion criterion but needs to be stopped for at least 12 hours after 68Ga-DOTATATE injection).
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 disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
Background: Neuroblastoma is the most frequent extracranial childhood tumor, with an annual incidence of approximately 10.2 per million children. Initial staging of the disease and monitoring of the treatment response can be performed with different imaging modalities that include contrast-enhanced computed tomography (ceCT), ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), bone scintigraphy and 123I-MIBG scintigraphy. Another potential target for neuroblastoma imaging is the somatostatin receptor (SSTR) that is present in many neuroendocrine tumours (NET). The superior PET imaging technology used with new radiotracers (such as 68Ga-DOTATATE) enables imaging at advantageous resolutions well below what is possible by current clinical SPECT systems that are used for 123I-MIBG. Design: Prospective single-arm non-randomized clinical trial (phase II)
- - pilot.
Experimental: Single arm with 68Ga-DOTATATE
all participants will undergo a PET scan with 68Ga-DOTATATE
Biological: - Radiopharmaceutical 68Ga-DOTATATE
Injection of 68Ga-DOTATATE followed by PET/CT acquisition
