Study Title

A Phase II Randomized Clinical Trial of Radiotherapy Planning Using Conventional Imaging +/- Fluciclovine PET in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma

Study Details


The purpose of the this study is to see if the use of a PET scan with 18F-fluciclovine (PET or Fluciclovine PET) in addition to the normal radiation planning imaging procedures (MRI and CT scan) will help determine the areas where the radiation therapy is to be delivered. It is also a goal of the study to determine if subjects live longer when treatment plans for radiation therapy are designed using a Fluciclovine PET scan, as well as MRI and CT scans. We will also collect information on if and where the tumor returns. Information on the side effects from the two different treatment planning imaging methods will also be collected. 18F-Fluciclovine is an FDA-approved radioactive diagnostic agent that is injected into the patient 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.
