uPAR-PET for Prognostication in Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer, Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma and Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Lung

Study Purpose

uPAR PET/CT as a prognostic marker in non-small cell lung cancer.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

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.

Eligible Ages 18 Years - 85 Years
Gender All

Trial Details

Trial ID:

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.

Phase 2

Additional Details

Study I: uPAR PET/CT with 68Ga-NOTA-AE105 will be evaluated as a prognostic tool in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (stage IV (Ia) operable disease (Ib)) by observer-blinded readings and compared to the prognostic performance of FDG PET/CT and prognostic biomarkers as uPAR. Furthermore, uPAR PET/CT will be evaluated in a pilot study in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) (Study II) and large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the lung (LCNEC) (Study III) and correlated with immunohistochemical uPAR expression.
