 (submitted: July 6, 2020)
Biodistribution of gallium 68Ga-FAPi-46 in normal and cancer tissues [ Time Frame: At 20-90 minutes after injection] ]

 (submitted: July 1, 2020)
To define and document the biodistribution of gallium 68Ga-FAPi-46 in normal and cancer tissues [ Time Frame: At 60 minutes after injection ]
To quantify tumor tissue and normal background organs positron emission tomography (PET) tracer uptake by semi-quantitative analysis (unit/metrics = standardized uptake values [SUV]).

Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: November 29, 2022)
  • 68Ga-FAPi-46 accumulation observed by positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) [ Time Frame: Up to year 2 ]
    Will be correlated with FAP expression in surgically removed or biopsy derived tumor tissue.
  • 68Ga-FAPI-46 biodistribution correlation with 18F-FDG biodistribution [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
    2. To assess the 68Ga-FAPI-46 biodistribution correlation with 18F-FDG biodistribution and to define the frequency of the following phenotypes (FAP+/ FDG+, FAP-/ FDG+, FAP+/ FDG-, FAP-/ FDG-)
Original Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: July 1, 2020)
To evaluate whether 68Ga-FAPi-46 accumulation observed by PET correlates with the amount of fibroblast activation protein (FAP) assessed by immunohistochemistry (IHC) in excised cancer tissue [ Time Frame: Up to date of surgery (range 1-90 days) ]
68Ga-FAPi-46 tumor SUVs will be correlated with FAP expression from surgically resected tumors. IHC will be scored with a semi-quantitative scoring system that accounts for staining intensity (0-2, where 0 is negative, 1 is weak, 2 is strong and eq. stands for equivocal). Correlations will be sought using least square regression analysis.
Current Other Pre-specified Outcome Measures
 (submitted: July 6, 2020)
To assess the 68Ga-FAPI-46 biodistribution correlation with other PET tracers [ Time Frame: 60 minutes after tracer injection ]
The other PET tracer biodistribution will be described by mean and maximum standardized uptake values (SUVmean and SUVmax). The SUV of FAPI PET and the other PET tracers will be tested for correlation.
Original Other Pre-specified Outcome Measures
 (submitted: July 1, 2020)
To assess the 68Ga-FAPI-46 biodistribution correlation with other PET tracers [ Time Frame: 60 minutes after tracer injection ]
The other PET tracer biodistribution will be described by mean and maximum standardized uptake values (SUVmean and SUVmax) and tested for correlation.
 
Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Prospective Exploratory Study of FAPi PET/CT With Histopathology Validation in Patients With Various Cancers
Official Title  ICMJE PET Biodistribution Study of 68Ga-FAPI-46 in Patients With Different Malignancies: An Exploratory Biodistribution Study With Histopathology Validation
Brief Summary This exploratory study investigates how an imaging technique called 68Ga-FAPi-46 PET/CT can determine where and to which degree the FAPI tracer (68Ga-FAPi-46) accumulates in normal and cancer tissues in patients with cancer. Because some cancers take up 68Ga-FAPi-46 it can be seen with PET. FAP stands for Fibroblast Activation Protein. FAP is produced by cells that surround tumors (cancer associated fibroblasts). The function of FAP is not well understood but imaging studies have shown that FAP can be detected with FAPI PET/CT. Imaging FAP with FAPI PET/CT may in the future provide additional information about various cancers.
Detailed Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To define the biodistribution of gallium Ga 68 fibroblast activation protein inhibitor (FAPi)-46 (68Ga-FAPi-46) in normal and cancer tissues of patients with various malignancies.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the degree of 68Ga-FAPi-46 accumulation observed by positron emission tomography (PET) imaging as opposed to the amount of FAP in excised cancer tissue.

II. To assess the 68Ga-FAPI-46 biodistribution correlation with 18F-FDG biodistribution and to define the frequency of the following phenotypes (FAP+/ FDG+, FAP-/ FDG+, FAP+/ FDG-, FAP-/ FDG-)

EXPERIMENTAL OBJECTIVE:

To assess the correlation of 68Ga-FAPI-46 biodistribution with 68Ga-DOTATATE or 18F-DOPA (FDOPA), depending on the specific indication in patients who had them available

OUTLINE:

Patients receive 68Ga-FAPi-46 intravenously (IV), and then undergo PET/computed tomography (CT) over 20-90 minutes. On another day, patients receive 18F-FDG and then undergo PET/computed tomography (CT) according to standard of care procedures (if applicable).
