Sarcoma clinical trials at UCLA

31 in progress, 13 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • 68Ga-FAPi-46 PET/CT Scan in Imaging Patients With Sarcoma

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This early phase I trial studies an imaging technique called 68Ga-FAPi-46 PET/CT to determine where and to which degree the FAPI tracer (68Ga-FAPi-46) accumulates in normal and cancer tissues in patients with sarcoma. PET is an established imaging technique that utilizes small amounts of radioactivity attached to very minimal amounts of tracer, in the case of this research, 68Ga-FAPi. Because some cancers take up 68Ga-FAPi it can be seen with PET. CT utilizes x-rays that traverse body from the outside. CT images provide an exact outline of organs and potential inflammatory tissue where it occurs in patient's body.
