Study information

Scientific title


Study hypothesis

The primary objective is to assess the efficacy and the time-response of manganese chloride tetrahydrate (CMC-001©) in two dose levels as a contrast medium in Magnetic Resonance (MR)-cholangiography and to further evaluate the safety and tolerability of CMC-001© in patients.

Ethics approval

Approval received from the regional ethical committee in Gothenburg on the 7th September 2006 (ref: 235-06).

Study design

This study is an open label, parallel group, randomised, single centre study in patients with suspected liver lesions.

Primary study design


Secondary study design

Randomised controlled trial

Trial setting


Trial type


Patient information sheet


Magnetic resonance imaging of the liver, bile ducts and the gall bladder.


Patients with suspected liver lesions will be given either a full dose (1.6 g) or half dose (0.8 g) of CMC-001©. A total of 16 fully evaluable patients will be included, 8 patients in each treatment arm. The study will be conducted at one site in Sweden.

Each patient will visit the clinic on three occasions:
1. The screening visit
2. For Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
3. For a follow-up

In addition, a telephone follow-up will be performed 48 hours after administration of CMC-001©. The total study duration for each patient is not more than 10 days. The patients are assessed by MRI at pre-dose and 2.5 and 4 hours post dose.

Every patient will have three visits to the clinic at screening when MRI is done and blood samples for laboratory analyses is done, at the treatment day when two MRIs are done at 2.5 hours and 4 hours after contrast. The third occasion is a visit to the clinic 24 hours after contrast for safety reasons with new blood samples for laboratory testing is drawn. All patients will also be contacted by telephone 48 hrs after contrast when Adverse Events (AEs) will be asked for.

Phase II

Drug names

Manganese chloride tetrahydrate (CMC-001©)

Primary outcome measure

The primary objective is to assess the efficacy and the time-response of CMC-001© in two dose levels as a contrast medium in MR-cholangiography and to further evaluate the safety and tolerability of CMC-001© in patients.

Secondary outcome measures

1. To assess if CMC-001©-enhanced MR-cholangiography provides an equally good or improved image quality of the non-dilated biliary tree in comparison to T2-weighted MR cholangiography
2. To assess and compare the visualisation and delineation of focal liver lesions before contrast and after 2.5 and 4 hours after administration of CMC-001©
3. To assess the extent to which the pancreatic duct is filled 2.5 and 4 hours post administration of CMC-001©
