Transabdominal Ultrasound With BR55 for Characterization of Pancreatic Lesions

This is an exploratory, single center, open label, parallel-dose, and prospective study of BR55 CEUS for characterization of solid pancreatic lesions in subjects with suspected PDAC using transabdominal US.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.

   systemic hypertension and/or respiratory distress syndrome;

   - Has open and/or non-healing wounds in the chest, abdomen and pelvis;

   - Has other systemic vascular abnormalities associated with neovascularization, such as
   macular degeneration, that in the opinion of the investigator could significantly
   affect the ability to evaluate the effects of BR55;

   investigational compound within the past 30 days prior to enrolment;

   - Has previously been enrolled in and completed this study;

   - Has any known allergy to one or more of the ingredients of the IP or to any other
   contrast media;
