Cardinal Health Supports ACRIN Clinical Trials Evaluating Oncologic Biotracers
Date:6/3/2010

lass="discStyle" type="disc">
  • Two clinical trials assessing FLT-PET. One will evaluate its ability to assess whether chemotherapy treatments have been successful in reducing tumors prior to surgery in patients with locally advanced breast cancer. The other will use FLT-PET and advanced MRI sequences to assess whether imaging biotracers can be useful in predicting the likelihood of survival among patients with glioblastoma tumors.

  • Cardinal Health's Nuclear Pharmacy Services business operates more than 30 cyclotrons throughout the United States. These machines manufacture the high-energy PET imaging agents that allow internal images to be taken of the body. Cardinal Health cyclotrons are strategically located throughout the country to enable nearly 100 of the company's 160 radiopharmacies to compound and dispense high-energy, PET imaging agents in unit-dose form. Cardinal Health's vast network of "PET-enabled" pharmacies, combined with its comprehensive fleet and logistics capabilities, play a critical role in enabling patients, hospitals, clinics and research facilities to participate in innovative clinical trials of both proprietary and non-proprietary imaging agents.

    "Cardinal Health's extensive nuclear pharmacy expertise and its broad network of PET manufacturing and distribution sites make it an important partner in enabling ACRIN to conduct clinical trials using novel PET imaging probes," said David Mankoff, MD, PhD, chair of ACRIN's Experimental Imaging Sciences Committee and professor of radiology in the nuclear medicine department at the University of Washington. "Cardinal Health is playing a critical role in helping ACRIN find new ways to leverage imaging probes such as Sodium Fluoride, FMISO and FLT to assess the efficacy of cancer treatments."
