Tau PET Imaging With 18F-AV-1451 in Subjects With MAPT Mutations

Resumen breve

The study will investigate the ability of a new PET tracer, 18F-AV-1451, to detect depositions of a protein, called tau, in the brains of people with a mutation in the tau gene that causes deposition of the protein, and in people without the mutation. Up to three 18F-AV-1451 scans will be performed (one per year) on control subjects without MAPT mutations, presymptomatic mutation carriers, and symptomatic mutation carriers.

Descripción detallada

Approximately 40% of cases of Frontotemporal lobar Degeneration (FTLD) are also associated with abnormal deposition of tau protein. The purpose of this study is to image MAPT mutation carriers and their non-carrier relatives in order to study the use of this tracer as a biomarker in Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration with tau deposition (FTLD-tau).

Tipo: Experimental

Descripción: Subjects who are microtubule associated protein tau (MAPT) family carriers and non-carriers will receive 18F-AV-1451 by injection, and undergo a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan, which will then be qualitatively analyzed to examine tau deposition in the brain.
