Trial Information

[F18]EF5 PET/CT Imaging in Patients With Locally Advanced or Recurrent/Metastatic Carcinoma of the Cervix


OBJECTIVES:

- To determine if the presence and heterogeneity of hypoxia can be detected by fluorine F
18 EF5 binding in tumors during PET/CT imaging in patients with newly diagnosed or
recurrent carcinoma of the cervix.

- To determine if fludeoxyglucose F 18 uptake correlates with fluorine F 18 EF5 uptake.

- To assess the relationship between fluorine F 18 EF5 uptake and disease-free and
overall survival.

OUTLINE: Patients are stratified according to disease stage (locally advanced vs recurrent
or metastatic disease).

Patients receive fluorine F 18 EF5 IV followed by PET/CT imaging from the base of skull to
upper thigh at baseline and during radiotherapy or chemotherapy (i.e., at 3-4 weeks after
the initiation of radiotherapy or after the 4th, 5th, or 6th course of chemotherapy).
Patients also undergo fludeoxyglucose F 18 PET/CT imaging within 7 to 10 days of the second
fluorine F 18 EF5 scan.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days and then annually
thereafter.
