Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.
|Principal Investigator Affiliation||Mayo Clinic|

|Glioblastoma, Malignant Glioma|
- I. Compare overall survival at 12 months for grade IV glioma patients after radiation therapy targeting volumes designed with both 18F-DOPA-PET and conventional magnetic resonance (MR) image (or PET/computed tomography [CT]) information with historical controls.
- I. Compare progression free survival at 12 months after radiation therapy targeting volumes designed with both 18F-DOPA-PET and conventional MR image information with historical controls.
- II. Determine acute and late effect toxicity after hypofractionated proton beam radiotherapy treatment including areas of high 18F-DOPA-PET uptake (T/N > 2.0).
- I. Compare radiotherapy (RT) treatment volumes defined by MR only with RT treatment volumes defined with both PET and MR information for grade IV glioma patients.
- II. Compare differences in RT volumes identified using biopsy-validated thresholds as highly aggressive disease comparing 18F-DOPA uptake and relative cerebral blood volume (relCBV) from perfusion MRI (pMRI) as well as differences in RT volumes identified using biopsy-validated thresholds as tumor extent comparing 18F-DOPA uptake and diffusion maps from diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) will be evaluated.
- III. Evaluate quality of life after radiotherapy using European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) questionnaires compared with historical controls from Keim-Guibert et al.
- IV. Compare differences in proton radiation planning utilizing radiobiologic modeling/evaluation techniques performed at Mayo Clinic Rochester to linear energy transfer distribution evaluation at Mayo Clinic Arizona.
