Gadolinium Retention clinical trials at UCSD
1 in progress, 1 open to new patients
Evaluation of Gd Retention in Human Bone and Skin After MultiHance or ProHance Administration Compared With Control
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
Subjects must be scheduled to undergo an orthopedic surgical procedure. Subjects in the non-control group must have previously received an MRI with MultiHance or ProHance with at least 1 month between the last administration and the scheduled surgery. Subjects who have never received MultiHance or ProHance or any other gadolinium agent will also be enrolled. Subjects must have a test of their kidney function (SCr) at the time of the last MRI examination or at the time of enrollment if they never received gadolinium. A sample of bone and skin will be collected from the scheduled surgery and tested for the amount of gadolinium. An additional sample of skin will be collected for testing the presence of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF).
