Study Summary

This trial is testing a new approach for the diagnosis and targeted therapy of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), a degenerative vascular disease which is typically asymptomatic until rupture, resulting in high mortality.

Eligible Conditions
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
  • Non-AAA (No Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm)

Study Objectives

4 Primary · 0 Secondary · Reporting Duration: 4 years

4 years
Assess imaging reproducibility of 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i PET/CT in non-surgical AAA patients.
Assess the 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i imaging characteristics in AAA patients undergoing open repair and non-AAA volunteers to determine the relationship between tracer uptake and molecular characterization of prospectively collected AAA tissues.
Determine the binding characteristics of 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i in ex vivo human AAA specimens and correlate with associated histopathological features
Determine the relationship between 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i binding, regional CCR2 gene expression, cytokine profiles and local matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity.
