A Phase II Pre-Treatment Hypoxia PET Imaging Study Using 18F-FAZA in Patients With Invasive Duct Carcinoma of the Breast
In about half the cases of breast cancer, there is hypoxic (no, or little oxygen) tissue
present. Hypoxic cells can be resistant to treatment and may cause increased tumour growth.
This study will use 18F-FAZA PET scans before surgery or treatment to assess whether
patients have hypoxic tumours. The results will be compared to tissue samples removed during
surgery and to the distribution of 18F-FDG.
