What we are studying
In this study, Lymphoseek will be injected around your tumor on the day of surgery. Lymphoseek is a radioactive mapping drug that sticks to lymph nodes and is able to be seen with a special camera or a hand held detector. Your study doctor may also choose to use a dye as a part of your surgical procedure, called Vital Blue Dye or Indocyanine green. These dyes pass through lymph nodes and can be seen by the human eye. After injection of these drugs, this study will use a procedure called lymphatic mapping. The lymphatic system is made up of the tissues and organs involved in immunity, which aid in the fight against infection and cancer. Lymph nodes are small, bean-shaped organs located within the body throughout the lymphatic system. Lymphatic mapping will take place at the beginning of your surgery and is used to find the sentinel lymph node, a node where cancer cells are most likely to spread from your tumor.
parking will be validated for all study related visits
