Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.

This is a multicenter, prospective cohort study aimed at facilitating identification of individuals with ATTR-CA. Investigators will identify subjects with previous LSS surgery who have evidence of TTR amyloid deposits in spinal specimens. Subjects with localized TTR in spinal tissue will be invited to an on-site visit and be evaluated for the presence of clinical manifestations of ATTR cardiac amyloidosis (ATTR-CA). Subjects will undergo nuclear scintigraphy, TTR genetic test, a clinical evaluation, electrocardiogram, and echocardiogram. Quality of life questionnaires will also be administered. Subjects who have myocardial retention of the imaging radiotracer with a Perugini score equal to 2 (uptake equal to bone) or 3 (uptake greater than bone) and confirmation by SPECT or SPECT/CT that the uptake is myocardial in nature and have no evidence of monoclonal proteins will be diagnosed with ATTR-CA. This study is to be conducted at five study sites: Boston Medical Center, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and Tufts University Medical Center. The Mayo Clinic will serve a Pathology research core to analyze spine specimens. Most of the subjects are expected to complete all the study procedures and questionnaires on a single day. Up to 1663 patients will be consented in this study to have spinal specimens examined for the presence of amyloid by Congo Red at the Mayo Clinic core lab. From the pool of subjects with amyloid detected (which anticipate will be 33% or at least 544), the investigators expect to recruit 163 participants to undergo cardiac phenotyping (Tc99m and cardiac evaluation). Among the 163 participants who undergo cardiac phenotyping, 98 will have TTR as the precursor protein identified by mass spectrometry and 65 will have an indeterminant precursor protein by mass spectrometry.
: ATTR Negative
Participants who have undergone previous lumbar spinal, and/or carpel tunnel surgery will provide medical record data and spinal specimen for analysis of presence of ATTR amyloid.
: ATTR Positive
Participants who have undergone previous lumbar spinal, and/or carpel tunnel surgery will provide medical record data, spinal specimen, prospective data from cardiac workup with confirmed ATTR amyloid in spinal specimen then undergo cardiac workup for cardiac phenotyping/genotyping.
Diagnostic Test: - Tc99-PYP or Tc99-HDMP Scan
Difference in ATTR-CA prevalence between subjects with TTR and indeterminate amyloid deposits in their spine by myocardial uptake of Tc99-PYP.
