In this phase 4 study, all patients will receive 1 dose of Ablavar as part of an MRI examination in their routine clinical management.
A standardized NSF questionnaire will be administered to the patient at various time points post-dose. At 1 year and 2 years (+1 or -1 month) patients will return to the clinic for a limited examination for skin abnormalities and formal review of signs and symptoms suggestive of NSF.
This Phase 4, open-label, two-year, prospective, multi-center, follow-up study will be conducted in up to 15 active sites in the United States.
All patients will receive 1 dose of Ablavar as part of an MRI examination in their routine clinical management. Prior to undergoing an Ablavar MRI, patients will have a baseline serum creatinine test within 24 hours prior to Ablavar administration, will sign an Informed Consent (IC) form, and will undergo a brief medical history assessment on the day of and prior to Ablavar administration.
A standardized NSF questionnaire will be administered to the patient at 48 (+ or -12) hours, 1 month (+ or - 1 week), 3 months (+ or - 2 weeks), 6 (+ or - 1) months, and 18 (+ or - 1) months post-dose. At 12 (+ or - 1) months, and at 24 (+ or - 1) months, patients will return to the clinic for a limited examination for skin abnormalities and formal review of signs and symptoms suggestive of NSF.

The investigators will study the effect of imatinib mesylate (Glivec) in treatment of moderate to severe nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF). So far there is no evidence of adequately eff...
The objective of this study is to prospectively monitor the incidence of adverse drug reactions, specifically NSF during routine use of gadoversetamide in a large number of patients with m...
The primary objective of this study is to determine any causative or associated factors contributing to the development of Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF), Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermop...
The purpose of this study is to assess the image quality of Ablavar-enhanced MR angiography of the central veins of the chest, and to determine whether dose reduction can be performed whil...
Assess potential risk for NSF in subjects with renal impairment (moderate/severe) post magnevist injection. Subjects will be screened with in 48 hours of previously scheduled MRI, those m...
Several studies have demonstrated that secreted glycoprotein and integrin ligand MFG-E8 negatively regulate fibrosis in the liver, lungs and respiratory tract. However, the mechanisms and roles of MFG...
The molecular structure, charge, thermodynamic and kinetic stability are approximately the same for gadodiamide and gadoversetamide, the main substantive difference is that gadodiamide is manufactured...
Systemic sclerosis is a systemic autoimmune disorder wherein interstitial lung disease (ILD) is the major source or morbidity and mortality. Research into mechanisms of fibrosis and its intersection w...
Gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) are widely used in medical imaging, with greater than 300 million doses administered since their introduction. The risk of adverse reactions is very low, and G...
At present, there are no clinical or laboratory measures that accurately forecast the progression of skin fibrosis and organ involvement in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc). The goal of this stu...
A chronic, acquired, idiopathic, progressive eruption of the skin that occurs in the context of RENAL FAILURE. It is sometimes accompanied by systemic fibrosis. The pathogenesis seems to be multifactorial, with postulated involvement of circulating fibrocytes. There is a strong association between this disorder and the use of gadolinium-based contrast agents.
Irreversible FIBROSIS of the submucosal tissue of the MOUTH.
An idiopathic systemic inflammatory granulomatous disorder comprised of epithelioid and multinucleated giant cells with little necrosis. It usually invades the lungs with fibrosis and may also involve lymph nodes, skin, liver, spleen, eyes, phalangeal bones, and parotid glands.
An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.
A chloride channel that regulates secretion in many exocrine tissues. Abnormalities in the CFTR gene have been shown to cause cystic fibrosis. (Hum Genet 1994;93(4):364-8)
