Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1
Flurpiridaz PET MPI (following off-study SPECT MPI)
Flurpiridaz (18F) Injection. All subjects will receive 2 IV boluses of Flurpiridaz (18F) Injection in a large peripheral vein: 1 at rest and 1 during stress. The dosages of Flurpiridaz (18F) Injection administered at rest and during stress conditions will not exceed a total of 14 mCi (520 MBq) for an individual subject.

SPECT imaging must use 99mTc-based myocardial tracers. SPECT agents utilised for the purposes of this clinical study will be administered as per American Society of Nuclear Cardiology or European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging standards, where applicable. All patients will undergo SPECT MPI.

Drug: Pharmacological stress agents
Pharmacologic stress agents will be restricted to the following 3 agents, as permitted by local marketing authorisations and availability: adenosine, dipyridamole, and regadenoson. Administration will be through an IV line.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Diagnostic efficacy of Flurpiridaz (18F) Injection PET MPI in the detection of significant CAD [ Time Frame: 60 days ]
    Defined by invasive coronary angiography, in patients with suspected CAD

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Diagnostic efficacy of Flurpiridaz (18F) Injection PET MPI compared with SPECT MPI in the detection of CAD [ Time Frame: 60 days ]

    Defined by invasive coronary angiography, in female subjects

    • All subjects (key secondary endpoint)
    • Female subjects
    • Subjects with body mass index (BMI) ≥30 kg/m2
    • Diabetic subjects

  2. Diagnostic efficacy of Flurpiridaz (18F) Injection PET MPI compared with SPECT MPI in the detection of CAD [ Time Frame: 60 days ]
    Defined by invasive coronary angiography, in subjects with body mass index (BMI) ≥30 kg/m2

  3. Diagnostic efficacy of Flurpiridaz (18F) Injection PET MPI compared with SPECT MPI in the detection of CAD [ Time Frame: 60 days ]
    Defined by invasive coronary angiography, in diabetic subjects

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The subject is a man or woman ≥18 years of age.
  • The subject has read, signed, and dated an informed consent form (ICF) prior to any study procedures being performed.
  • At the time of enrolment, the subject has been scheduled via written documentation to undergo an ICA for the assessment of CAD.
  • The subject has undergone a clinically indicated SPECT OR the patient is willing to undergo SPECT MPI for the purposes of the clinical study.
  • The subject is male or is a nonpregnant, nonlactating female who is either surgically sterile or is post-menopausal.
  • The subject is able and willing to comply with all study procedures as described in the protocol.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who are pregnant, may possibly be pregnant, or wish (including their partners) to become pregnant during the study period, or are lactating.
  • Patients who are unable to undergo all of the imaging procedures.
  • Patients who have an established diagnosis of CAD as confirmed by any of the following:

    1. Previous myocardial infarction (MI);
    2. Previous cardiac catheter angiography showing ≥50% stenosis;
    3. Previous coronary revascularisation, such as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), thrombolysis or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) placement.
  • Patients incapable of undergoing either exercise or pharmacological cardiac stress testing.
  • Patients who have a current illness or pathology that, in the opinion of the investigator, would pose a significant safety risk for the patient during cardiac stress testing.
  • Documented history of heart failure and/or cardiomyopathy and/or prior LV ejection fraction (LVEF) <50%).
  • Patients scheduled for or planning to undergo any cardiac interventional procedures between enrolment and ICA.
  • Patients undergoing evaluation for heart transplantation or with history of heart transplantation.
  • Patients enrolled in another clinical study within the 30 days prior to being enrolled in this study or scheduled to participate in another clinical study during the 7-day follow-up period of this study.
