Tau PET Imaging for Primary Progressive Aphasia

Start: February 2016
End: February 1, 2024
Enrollment: 70

What Is This Study About?

Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is a type of dementia that involves changes in the ability to use language to speak, read, write, and understand what others are saying. New tools are needed to help diagnose PPA. This study will test the effectiveness of the radioactive tracer, 18F-AV-1451, to detect the amount and location of tau, a protein that accumulates abnormally in the brains of people diagnosed with PPA. All participants will receive an injection of the tracer and then a positron emission tomography (PET) scan. The researchers will review the brain scans for the identification of tau patterns and monitor participants for any side effects.
