This interventional, clinical pilot-study will initiate and evaluate 68Ga/177Lu-PSMA theranostics in Norway as treatment alternative for patients with recurrent grade 3 and grade 4 gliomas. The main goal is to improve existing diagnostic and therapeutic methods in glioma management, and introduce a novel, well-tolerated radionuclide treatment that possibly can increase the overall survival and quality of life for a patient group that today have very short expected survival and no standard recommended therapy.
Neuroblastoma is the most frequent extracranial childhood tumor, with an annual incidence of approximately 10.2 per million children. Staging of the disease can be done by different imaging strategies (CT, MRI, scintigraphy and PET/CT). Discrepancies may be observed among these different strategies resulting in different treatment strategies. The goal of this study is to assess the feasibility and safety of 68Ga-DOTATATE and to compare it to 123I-MIBG when investigating neuroblastoma.
This clinical trial is a pragmatic study aiming to evaluate the innocuity/safety profile of the PET radiotracer 68Ga-DOTA-TATE, and to establish the procedure as a routine standard-of-care diagnostic tool for all neuro-endocrine cancer patients. It is a single-center study, but with recruitment across all Canada. The trial is prospective, non-randomized, open-label and with no control group. The superiority of this procedure over the former standard-of-care (Octreoscan) was already established in previous and numerous studies across the world. As such, the current trial aims to gather data to further support the implementation of...
The study population consists of patients who undergo resection for somatostatin receptor-positive (SSTR-positive) CNS tumors, focusing on meningioma, and including esthesioneuroblastoma, hemangioblastoma, medulloblastoma, paraganglioma, pituitary adenoma, and SSTR-positive systemic cancers metastatic to the brain, such as small cell carcinoma of the lung. The study indication is to determine the diagnostic utility of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/MRI in the diagnosis and management of patients with SSTR-positive CNS tumors, specifically whether 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/MRI demonstrates utility distinguishing between tumor recurrence and post-treatment...
Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NETs) are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms that arise from the endocrine cells of the gastroenteropancreatic tract. The diagnostic work-up of these tumours include Computed Tomography (CT), Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The majority of these tumours express somatostatin receptors on their surface. For this reason, in addition to traditional imaging exams, diagnostic work-up of GEP-NETs should include a Positron Emission Tomography/CT with 68Ga labeled somatostatin analogues targeting somatostatin receptors with high sensitivity and specificity....
This is an open-label positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) study to investigate the clinical predictive value of 68Ga-grazytracer in subjects with non-small cell lung cancer or melanoma receiving immune checkpoint inhibitors (e.g., Ipilimumab, Nivolumab). A single dose of 2.96 MBq/kg body weight of 68Ga-grazytracer will be injected intravenously. The visual and semiquantitative methods will be used to assess the PET/CT images.
Somatostatin receptor (SSR) imaging is a critical component of clinical care for many patients being investigated for or with confirmed SSR positive tumors. In the past, 111In-octreotide imaging has been used for this purpose but it has been recently supplanted globally by SSR positron emission tomography (PET) imaging due to better image quality and higher diagnostic accuracy. This study will assess the safety and diagnostic effectiveness of 68Ga-HA-DOTATATE produced a the Edmonton Radiopharmaceutical Centre (ERC).
To determine if 68Ga-HA-DOTATATE PET/CT imaging is effective at diagnosing somatostatin positive tumors compared to conventional imaging [including CT, MRI, 111 In-pentetreotide Scans, 18F-FDG PET/CT, as available]
PSMA is highly expressed on the cell surface of the microvasculature of several solid tumors, including glioma. This makes it a potentially imaging target for the detection and grading of gliomas. This pilot study was designed to evaluate the diagnostic performance of 68Ga-P16-093, a novel radiopharmaceutical targeting PSMA, which was compared with MRI in the same group of glioma patients.
Based on the high expression of specific receptors on the surface of diseased tissues and neovascularization, noninvasive targeted molecular imaging can be used to visualize lesions in vitro by combining specific ligands labeled with short half-life isotopes. In this study, a novel dual-target imaging agent 68Ga-RM26-RGD was used for clinical study of tumor PET/CT imaging to further verify its clinical application value.
