Details and patient eligibility

About

Many types of cancers overexpress a receptor for the vitamin folate (Folate Receptor). This Phase 2 study will utilize a standard imaging radionuclide, technetium-99m, conjugated to a ligand (EC20) designed to bind to the folate receptor. The study is designed as an open-label, baseline-controlled study.

Full description

This is a Phase 2 open-label, single-treatment group, baseline-controlled study designed to verify product safety, gather data on the percentage of subjects with pituitary tumors with increased uptake of FolateScan in tumors and correlate the immunohistochemical staining findings with the FolateScan images, in subjects with pituitary tumors.
